How this WordPress Plugin Works
When editing a page or post, you may insert the short code by
clicking on the [PDF] icon above the HTML editor toolbar where
the cursor was last placed in the text area. After uploading or
selecting an existing PDF class file (from a previous upload),
you can then nominate the security settings to use for the page
or post. Different pages can use different security and display settings:
|| Width in pixels of the PDF
|| Height in pixels of the PDF
| Print Count
|| Enable printing and/or
limit number of prints
| Print Anywhere
|| Restrict printing to
virtual or hard-wired
| Allow Capture
|| Enable protection from
PrintScreen and capture
| Allow Remote
|| Prevent computers using
remote or virtual access
|| Set the language used in
|| Set color in the
unused area of viewer window
Default Settings for this WordPress Plugin

posts. Most useful for corporate networks and others who need to
limit access to certain types of web browsers, the default
settings page allows you to nominate which ones you want to
allow. Any browsers not qualifying will be redirected. You can
also select from 3 modes, which can be changed at any time:
| Demo Mode

CopySafe PDF Licensing
The CopySafe PDF Protector enables the encryption of PDF
documents for distribution by email, download and disk with copy protection
options and the ability to assign DRM control. It can also convert protected
PDF for display online, from a web page, using the web browser plugin
included with the CopySafe PDF Reader. Such documents encrypted for online
use do not need to be domain locked. However, domain locking is most
recommended to prevent their display on other websites.
Every CopySafe PDF Protector license provides for unlimited use and includes
free DRM hosting to manage subscribers. But it does not include licensing
for online display using Domain Lock. If the Protector is unlicensed
documents distributed for local viewing will include a watermark and
documents displayed online with a Domain Lock will not be secure.
ArtistScope oversees the use of domain lock in CopySafe PDF by requiring the
registration of each separate site (fee applies).
CopySafe PDF Version Detection
When CopySafe PDF is used on a web page, if a visitor does
not have the reader module or
ArtisBrowser installed, they are redirected for
download and install instructions. This WordPress plugin includes everything needed for this task including download and
