Topic: Restrict PDF content copy - XtraReports

We are using XtraReports in our product which produces reports in PDF format. The PDF reports’ document properties reveal that Content Copy and Extraction is enabled. We need to disable it, but DevExpress support doesn’t seem interested in digging into it – indicating they lack the appropriate “crypting algorithm” from Adobe and perhaps we should contact Adobe to find it.

Is anyone aware of an API / tool that we can use/call to control the properties of a PDF document? We will be integrating this API/tool with our application.

Is anyone aware of the existing PDF product/version/interface that Developer Express use for their XtraReports tool - such that it would change the version of the API/tool we are trying to identify in the first point?

Thanks, Dave
