      "Save records as PDF",  then view using "Web Viewer" but prevent viewer from deleting

      Post

      Firstly appologies if an answer to this already exists...we can't find it!

      We have created an application in Filemaker Pro 11 Windows version which makes considerable use of "Saving records as pdf's" and also given our users the ability to scroll through these pdfs, view and print them if required from within Filemaker via the "Web viewer". It works very well and is exactly what we want BUT when viewing them the user is also able to either right click and select "delete" or simply hit the "del" button and the pdf is deleted...we have to prevent that happening at all but the highest level.

      HOW??? First thoughts where to control it with Windows "Permissions" but what ever we have tried to do subsequently prevents a pdf being created in the first place. Does anyone please have any thoughts on how we can get round this?

      Many thanks in advance...BTW whilst not exactly experts we are fairly familier with Filemaker having used it for some time.
