  • Bloqueio de camadas para nunca editar- Layer lock to never edit

    Posted by Helen Zdruikoski Pfeiffer on April 4, 2023 at 1:18 pm

    Preciso de uma forma de editar todos os objetos e camadas de um documento, de forma que a pessoa abra no AI, porém não consiga alterar, apenas imprimir. Tentei no Corel e também não consegui. Alguém sabe se é possível? Se sim, como faço?

    I need a way to edit all the objects and layers of a document, so that the person opens it in AI, but cannot change it, just print it.

     

    I tried in Corel and also failed. Does anyone know if it's possible? If yes, how do I do it?

    To accomplish this, you can create a flattened, locked version of your artwork that can be printed but not edited. Here’s how you can do it in Adobe Illustrator:

    Open your document in Illustrator.

    Select all the objects in your document by pressing “Ctrl+A” on your keyboard.

    Copy the selected objects by pressing “Ctrl+C”

    Create a new, blank document in Illustrator by going to File > New.

    Paste the copied objects into the new document by pressing “Ctrl+V”

    Select all the objects in the new document and go to Object > Flatten Transparency. In the “Flatten Transparency” dialogue box, choose the “High Resolution” preset and click “OK”.

    Lock all the layers in the new document by clicking the lock icon next to each layer in the Layers panel or by pressing “Ctrl 2”

    Save the new document and share it with the person who needs to print it.

    Now, when the person opens the new document, they will not be able to edit the objects or layers because they are locked. However, they will be able to print the document as it appears.To accomplish this, you can create a flattened, locked version of your artwork that can be printed but not edited.
