      Can you remove the save/send feature of a pdf?

      Post

           I am using the export feature to open the pdf file in my fm go app.  I would like to know if anyone knows of a way to have people open the pdf files but not save or send them to anyone?

           We have pdf files that have proprietary and confidential information and need to make sure it does not leave the ipad.

           Any suggestions would be great???

           Thanks,

           JP

               Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.

               If a PDF file is created with FileMaker Go, it will reside in the same work area as FileMaker Go.  When launching a PDF file, it calls the PDF viewer in iOS, and the PDF viewer has the option to open the PDF file in another application.  This would need to be controlled by iOS; not FileMaker Go.

               Does anybody know of a way to disable this option under iOS?
