Print Security Settings

Question

Does anyone know if it is possible when creating a VectorWorks file to make it so that other users viewing the file cannot print any of the layers within it. I.e. So that nobody has print rights except the creator of the file. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You can deny people write permissions but that just means they open a copy and can do what they want with the copy. If you use Acrobat to write it to a PDF you can set the security there so it cannot be printed.

Before sheets came along you could batch print layers, I'm really not sure why this was dropped. Now you have to viewport the layers into sheets in order to utilize the Batch Print function. My Acrobat is a couple years old and the batch print produces a file for every sheet, then if you want to compile them into one file you do that from within Acrobat. I don't know if a newer version will print multiple sheets to one file or not.
