We're wanting to put some documents on the network in pdf format for personnel to view, but not print. I've seen pdf documents before, where the printer is disabled. Does anyone know how this is done. Cheers.

It will be under the security settings in whatever program you use to create them.

I have an older version of Acrobat and the security settings of the PDF file were set by doing a "Save as..." and setting the Security box in the dialog box to "Standard". You then can choose to block printing as well as making changes or copying the contents of the file. You then need to provide and confirm a password to prevent someone from changing the security settings.

Note: Do not depend on the security setting to prevent a determined party from printing or modifying the file. The security flags in a PDF file are really only suggestions to the PDF reader program. Plus there are commercial programs that make it a trivial task to strip the security settings without knowing the security password.
