Summary

Add permisions to files for printing editing etc.

Solution

In version 7004 we added a new property to the vdFileProperties like below
public FilePermissionsEnum FilePermissions

The enum can take the following values

public enum FilePermissionsEnum
None = 0,
Edit = 1,

Default value is 1 which means that the drawing can be edited.

C# use
doc.FileProperties.FilePermissions = vdFileProperties.FilePermissionsEnum.None;

This way the file will not be able to be edited. The following actions and commands are only possible.
Commands : cmdDistance,CmdArea
Actions : ActionPan,ActionGetRectFromPointSelectDCS,ActionUserDynamicRot,WalkThroughAction
Properties change : ViewCenter,ViewSize,ActiveLayOut,Background,osnapMode,World2ViewMatrix,PerspectiveMod,RenderMode

Note that this property is saved in VDML,VDCL format.
