Convert a document to PDF and restrict its printing

Hi, i could not find this in the features but is it possible to restrict the PDF print permission after conversion? Maybe with another module of the GroupDocs tools?

Thank you

@Verthosa,

GroupDocs.Conversion API doesn’t provide any such feature.

However, you can add password protection to the converted document using GroupDocs.Merger on-premise API. Hence, user cannot print it or even open/read it due to the protection/security.
Please let us know your development platform (Java or .NET), we can then assist you accordingly.

Hi, thanks for your answer, i already found a solution by using SharpPdf after the conversion through GroupDocs.
