Description floeff+ooo 2002-12-09 14:10:52 UTC
I would like to see the following as PDF capability:

- editing, changing and removing of PDFmark information like title, author,
created by, produced by, etc. (press Ctrl-D in Acroba Reader to see what I
mean); I do not want to have any information stored here.

With Ghostscript, the following EPILOGUE.PS file is okay for that:

[  /Author ()
   /CreationDate ()
   /Creator ()
   /Producer ()
   /Title ()
   /Subject ()
   /Keywords ()
   /ModDate ()
   /DOCINFO pdfmark

Should be default or at least optional in OpenOffice as well.

- there is a tool called iText ( that lets you
encrypt and "lock" PDF files (look at the file
iText\com\lowagie\tools\encrypt_pdf.txt). This one is for free. Please include
that possibility in OpenOffice as well.

Comment 2 floeff+ooo 2003-03-26 17:10:41 UTC
Any news regarding the encryption? The other issue seems to be
included in 1.1
Comment 3 floeff+ooo 2003-03-26 17:14:16 UTC

in 1.1, the docinfo fields like author, created by, ... are generally
blank. That seems to be good. However, would be nice if one could fill
these with the values you want :)

Still nothing about encryption, though...

Comment 6 floeff+ooo 2003-04-27 17:02:55 UTC
Any news whether the encryption and possibility to set author & co.
will be included in 1.1 final?

I would like to see some other features in the new PDF export to.
There were issues before (#7061) asking for this, but they were closed
because they were related to the "old" pdf-creation (via ps).:

1) Support for PDF Bookmarks (the OO outline information (Table of
content), OO Bookmarks, etc)

2) Support for PDF pagelabels: With this feature each page can have a
string as label instead of its page number. Roman letter page numbers
or restarting the pagenumber with 1 inside a document could be
exported to PDF this way. A lot of Documents restart their page
numbers with 1 several pages inside the document (after Title, TOC,
..). Therefore the pagenumber shown by acrobat differs from the
pagenumber printed on the pages and used for cross references.
This is can be very annoying. PDF pagelabels could be a cure for that.

3) PDF links: PDF supports links inside a PDF document or to URLs. So
http:// links, references, footnote marks <-> footnote, etc could be
exported to pdf as real links, enhancing the usability of an generated
PDF document.

4) spport for comments in PDF files

This Issue is related to
pdf mark in general
and indexed pdf
Comment 8 hwoarang 2003-08-23 03:24:52 UTC
it will be nice to put the "disable printing" in the Ooo too...
I don't know if it involves copyrights, but...
what do u think ?
Comment 9 floeff+ooo 2003-08-23 11:01:50 UTC
I don't know, but implementing the features if iText would be great!
