Hi There,

 

Thanks for your query.

While adding password to a PDF file; one can add a different password for printing the file; and also can completly block the PDF from printing in Hi-DPi while adding the password.

Do let me know, if more details are required.

 

Thanks

Regards,
Swapnil Srivastava

Hi @Moaen5C93 ,

 

This can be done with certificate security.

Students are highly motivated and WILL overcome any kind of security. Be very clear that if they want a printout of this file, they will have it, with anyone's name on as they choose. Because a lot of software just ignores Adobe security, the students won't even need to be hackers. Plan for this, you can't stop it, even if Adobe software gave 1000 passwords.
