In this window you can set the properties of current ebook/hypertext.
With this first tab of the Hypertext Options dialog you can define important ebook / hypertext information: the title, the author, the copyrights...
Then this dialog permits important protections.
First of all, on the bottom left you can apply a password for the editing. When you distribute a Aeh or Exe ebook, normally the end user can only "see" the ebook - they can not edit. But if they purchase EBooksWriter, they would be able to edit AEH files, if a "pass for editing" is not applied. Be careful: if you forget the password, you will be unable to edit. No recover is possible.
Then, on the right, you can protect the ebook against printing
(when disabled, you can still add links and/or buttons such as "print this page" - use Special Links
), against copy
and print screen
Then you can set up an expiry date
(after this date, the ebook will not open and, instead, it will say "expired" - or you can set up a custom expiry message within the Reader / Show options tab
); or you can set up that the ebook expires
after N days
(e.g. 10 days). In case you apply the expiration after some days, please understand that the field "Export prefix / ebook ID" acts as "ebook identifier" for this feature, and not the file name (for security purpose).
You can set a custom message (and/or URL) to be shown when the ebook is expired, you can do this in the reader and show options
All these settings work this way: you change a setting, then you create the ebook. There is only one case when you don't need to re-create the ebook: it is for adding new custom passwords for a user (if custom password for each user
is set); this can be done also when the ebook is already distributed or mass-replicated.
