Secure PDF creation using Drumlin Publisher
The Videos below show the use of our free DrumlinPublisher software to create a secured version of a two-page PDF called ftse.pdf - DrumlinPublisher is used to create secure PDFs with permissions settings such as "no printing", "expires after 30 days", "can be viewed 5 times only" etc. Typically the files that are created using Drumlin will be saved in our special format .DRMZ, so in this example the file ftse.drmz will be created. Files in this special format are readable on PCs, Macs, iPADs, iPhones and Android devices using our free Javelin PDF reader software. Before a user can read the file, however, they must enter a valid authorization code for that specific document. If the code is valid and not already used the document will be enabled for that specific device. Code creation and usage tracking is now included within the Drumlin Publisher software, and this is demonstrated in the third video (video 1c) on this page
