How to Lock Down Clipart in a PDF!

This week's tutorial is one that many people have asked me about over time... how do I lock down clipart in PDF documents for TPT?  Well, the long-awaited tutorial is finally here!

Here's the poll for those of you who are curious!

I wrote up two separate tutorials... one for Mac users and one for PC users.  The steps are totally different on the two computers so it warranted two separate write ups!

You can download this tutorial as a PDF by clicking this picture!
Note: This tutorial is hosted on Google Docs.  To save it from there, just open the file and click File > Download to save onto your computer!

For next week's poll, I'll be adding how to save your files as ZIP files!

  3. I have been saving my powerpoint files as PNGs and then dropping them back into powerpoint to save as a locked down PDF. This took forever. You just saved me so so much time. Thanks!!!!

  4. So if I have made a PowerPoint that I then saved as a PDF and complete these steps, will it still allow downloaders to edit text boxes??? Thank you so much! Loving your tutorials!! :)

  5. Thank you! I just stumbled across your tutorials, they are so helpful!
