Hi everyone,

I have created a PDF file and am wanting to secure it so that only authorised users can have access. I thinking about purchasing/using some software such as Ebook Generator ( I have tested some other ebook software out, and the results have not been satisfactory.

Basically what happens is the pdf loads in the .exe ebook software and starts to display as if it were loading from a HTML webpage. All of the Save buttons etc are available!! I am worried that if I gave this out to people they could potentially Save the pdf from within the .exe ebook software and then distribute it or copy the text.

Does anyone have any solutions or ideas? I was thinking of removing the menu and toolbars when I generate the pdf, but does this actually stop people from being able to save the pdf?
