Hi everybody,

I searched for a tool to restrict pdf usage and found
PDFBox. The reason that there are commandlinetools
included put a smile on my face ;-). So I tried the
comandline version of encryt and didn't get what I
expected. I hope someone can help me to solve my problem.

I tried to forbid all except degraded printing with
Encrypt.exe.

I used the following syntax:

Encrypt.exe -O Test -canAssemble false
-canExtractContent false -canExtractForAccessibility
false -canFillInForm false -canModify false
-canModifyAnnotations false -canPrint false
-canPrintDegraded true -keyLength 128 -version 2
-revision 4 test.pdf test-encrypted.pdf

The result was a pdf where printing is completely
forbidden. This I didn't want, so I tried another syntax:

Encrypt.exe -O Test -canAssemble false
-canExtractContent false -canExtractForAccessibility
false -canFillInForm false -canModify false
-canModifyAnnotations false -canPrint true
-canPrintDegraded true -keyLength 128 -version 2
-revision 4 test.pdf test-encrypted.pdf

The result was, that high resulution printing is
allowed, which I also didn't want.

How must the syntax look like to restrict everything
except degraded printing?

Many thanks forward for helping,
TBSC
