UI customization

All the settings under this section require a valid license. These settings should be set inside the global configuration file or the printer configuration file. The settings won't be overriden by settings made by a user in a user configuration file.

Advanced user restrictions settings


Setting Default Type Description
AllowUpdates true bool This setting can block any attempt of program update, and it belongs to the first level of the configuration (json) file. It is not recommended to disable updates, we are constantly working for our customers and improving the product
Editable true bool This setting belongs to each profile main level. The profile editor window will warn and block any attempt of change if this setting is set to false. This setting will also block any manual change made to the profile in the user’s application data configuration.

Locking specific features

Besides the self-locking settings for UI customization showed above, CIB pdf brewer has a mechanism of locking specific features. For this, we will have to add a suffix to the setting we want to block. 

Example:

"PdfVersion.Locked": 17

In the example, we lock the PDF version setting (fixed to PDF 1.7). If a user attempts to change it, a warning stating that the feature is locked will appear.
