Curiosity Technology Computers and Smartphones Disable copying in pdf document?


  • Hi. I need to copy protect a PDF file without a password and encryption in it. I tried convering options in word and online tools, but I dont see any options other than password protections. How can I do this?

  • Without password protection, you can’t stop anyone from copying a PDF. You can still convert the text elements as images and embed them back into PDF, but that cant stop others printing it and copying it.

  • Convert the text layers into low res images. Slap a watermark and you might prevent some OCRs getting it right.
