Without this module adding HTML to activate
a browser plugin would be an arduous task, even for experienced web
developers. But that task has been greatly simplified.
Simply upload the encrypted PDF file that was created by CopySafe PDF, nominate the protection settings to use, then the editor will insert the generated shortcode at the cursor position. Your protection settings can be modified at any time by simply editing the shortcode in HTML view.
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||Width in pixels of the PDF viewing area|
|Height||Height in pixels of the PDF viewing area|
|Print Count||Enable printing and/or limit number of prints|
|Print Anywhere||Restrict printing to virtual or hard-wired printers|
|Allow Capture||Enable protection from PrintScreen and capture|
|Allow Remote||Prevent computers using remote or virtual access|
|Language||Set the language used in toolbar messages|
|Background||Set color in the unused area of viewer window|

ArtistScope polices the use of domain lock in CopySafe PDF by requiring the registration of each separate site (fee applies).
