"PDF Printer" with encryption etc


Hi,

I made almost hundred PDFs daily and I never needed encryption for them. Usually I just export it from OO.org.

But I will need to start with creating encrypted PDFs in a few days and I am looking for a solution. I could create a PDF printer with Cups, but as I know there is no support for encryption.

And I don't need "real encryption", but just a possibility to turn off everything (editing,commenting, copying...) but printing of this document.

Any ideas? Thanks

M.

Scribus is able to do this -- haven't tried this, but I read it on their website.

EDIT: I can't test it myself now, since I'm just working under Windows, but I remember having imported an OpenOffice Writer document in Scribus as well. This might make your task a litte easier

thanks for the info ... it was usefull but it didn't help me too much, because I have to do everything by hand.

Step 1: save OO document as .ps
Step 2: open in scribus and save copy as .sca (scribus format) file
Step 3: export as pdf with all encryption settings

as said beforem, it is pretty usefull to know that there is such a tool, but I am looking for something which can do this automaticaly ... scribus does not have any usefull command line options ...

I'll try to compile it myself, there are maybe some configure options for turning this on.


anybody else ?

M.

Nice to hear that it worked for you. I didn't know the site before, but am glad I looked for it, too. Happy encrypting ...
