  1. Hi

    Do you know if there's any additional code to add and remove the default PDF options like save. Even after adding extra security settings to the PDF we can still see the option. I've managed to remove print however. I'm using the embed code.

    Thanks
    A

    1. Well, You can disable Save/Copy in PDF files by setting restrictions using Adobe PDF Writer.

  2. Hello,
    Many thanks for the solution! One thing i noticed is that, when i pull up the site on an ipad, it wont let me scroll and it only displays the top half of the pdf. Any ideas on how to fix? thanks!!
