Using a program like Bullzip PDF printer, print your Word documents to PDF format, then us a program like PDFill to set the security so the file can't be copied, printed or downloaded.

To my knowledge what you want to do can only be accomplished in PDF format.

In general you would print the Word file but select Bullzip as your printer. It will convert the Word file to PDF. You open the PDF version with PDFill then find the security settings and block the ability to copy, print. I don't have the program with me right now. I can provide more details later if you need me to.

Once you publish the document you lose control over reproduction.

If they can see it visually then they can copy it and reproduce it. The question is, are the students motivated enough to do it.

Even if the controls are strong enough to prevent electronic copying at the application level, which is what you are asking for, you would also need to implement more controls on the computer/operating system. Even then they can use photographs of displayed images because a photograph can be converted back to text using OCR just like any other scanned document or bitmap.

That is why some organizations use software that makes every version of a document appear with unique artefacts embedded so the source of unauthorized reproduction can be tracked.

@hsgharat, the PDFill suggested by joeguru is PDFill PDF Tools and covered at this article Best Free PDF Tools.

You may use the Encrypt Option of this tool to protect a PDF file and prevent it from being printed, copied, changed, filled or extracted, etc.

I discovered you don't need PDFill to create the security. Bullzip has the capability using the security tab when you select Bullzip as the printer then print. Bullzip will open a dialog window, click the security tab, enter an owner password, click set permissions, set printing to not allowed, uncheck copy to clipboard, click save. When you open the pdf document, the print, save and copy features will be disabled.

True you cannot prevent photographs, but you can prevent the actual file from being manipulated. Document security isn't something I'm real knowledgeable about so if this doesn't do what you're looking for I hope someone else can assist.
