Hi,

I have been using the information posted here to generate PDF files for invoices (works well btw, thanks!).
My only concern is that the PDF (output file) contains a digital signature (scanned PNG), which can be extracted from the PDF via copy/paste.

Is there a way to automatically protect the pdf file to prevent that? Something along the lines of win2pdf[FONT=Verdana,Arial,Tahoma,Calibri,Geneva,sans-serif] which adds that security to the regular Print to PDF printer objects.
maybe leveraging this feature as a part of the VB script? I am willing to pay for the win2PDF app.

There is a similar product (Apdf) that runs as a service, but a bit more expensive.

Note: I dont want to restrict printing, just copying parts of the PDF.

Thanks in advance,
keyser
