Can you limit user interaction on a PDF e.g. Read and Write only?

Last Updated: May 09, 2014 02:50PM PDT

Yes, Owner Password is an advanced feature available in PDFpenPro beginning with v.6x. Owner Password restricts user interaction with specific aspects of the document. For example, if you applied Owner Password, this would not prompt the user for a password upon opening the document. The user can still access the document. What is limited, are specific document actions e.g. printing, editing the document etc. To apply Owner Password, choose Inspector and click on the last tab with a lock. Enter your Owner Password and adjust your settings. You can find more information on permissions in PDFpen via our Help manual here:
