    When you create the pdf files, you have to disable all this option. In the KM, you can set permissions to the file but not that kind of options. What you want to disable are options for the PDF files, you need Adobe Acrobat or other PDF tool

      Dear Ashish,

      When you put a file in the KM is to share, that mean at first download the file, in case of PDF files, the action by default its to open a reader inside the browser, only with this, the file has already download in the client computer to could be open by the reader, even if you disable the option Save as, there still options to get the PDF files from temp on the client computer. So if you want to not to share the file, but only to give a look, I think PDF its not the better format. You can disable print or modified, but save I think not.
