AnswerAll our viewers support password protection for the publications uploaded on FlowPaper cloud - you can find the settings for password protection in the publishing dialogue that pops up when you click “Publish". The second option "Share on FlowPaper Cloud" has a section labelled "Show Advanced Settings". The password option in there allows you to set a password to your publication
QuestionI’m using flowpaper to view PDF files on my website. But when the PDF is getting loaded in viewer, PDF's absolute URL is getting exposed in browser's network console as Request URL. Is there any way we can hide or somehow decode the absolute URL.
AnswerUse our desktop publisher and make sure you have flatten/compress on if you want to use our Zine viewer. By doing this the viewer won't use the PDF file any longer when rendering the output and the resources are obfuscated into binary files only readable by FlowPaper.
QuestionHow do I lock my pdf to be only viewable from my domain? I am using Elements and FlowPaper cloud.
AnswerSelect "Publication Protection" on the left hand side in the settings section and then click "Publish, Custom Domain" and you'll be able to fill in the domain name to lock your publication to.
QuestionWe want to disable a share button. Can we do it?
AnswerYes the share button can be disabled by supplying a UIConfig file to the Zine viewer. You can generate a UIConfig file by using our desktop publisher or by manually editing one of the supplied templates with the file .xml extension.
QuestionHow can ‘Take a screenshot’ be disabled on right click?
AnswerIt’s not possible to prevent people from taking screenshots of FlowPaper or any other application
QuestionI want to disable print and make sure noone can print from the browser.
AnswerYou can remove the print icon in the publisher, to prevent people from printing the whole documnet. However, you can't prevent people from using the print in the browser. But the only thing that will be printed when printed using the browser print is the page/pages that are visible on screen. You can't prevent this just as you can't prevent people from taking screen-shots (and then printing these).

QuestionHow to remove the download button in the FlowPaper plugin?
AnswerThis is possible with any of our commercial licenses- use our desktop publisher and disable the download button (after importing your PDF file) on the right hand side in the "UI Components" section.The best protection we have to offer is with our Elements viewer. It takes a PDF and converts its resources including its fonts to real HTML5 fonts. When it does this you have the option of scrambling the font/text and locking the font to the domain you're publishing on. Elements is part of our 'Creative' License.
