Save as .wwf, Save a tree

A new green file format: WWF. The WWF format is a PDF that cannot be printed out. It's a simple way to avoid unnecessary printing. So here's your chance to save trees and help the environment. Decide for yourself which documents don't need printing out -- then simply save them as WWF.

Wondering though - do other people need this plugin to open the files?

Seems to me it's easier to click the "Don't allow printing" button already found in Acrobat.

ok but it doesn't make the people think about ambiental responsabilities, just think it's locked for other purposes.

the advantage of the proper "green" icon for this cause is claim atention from general public like my father xD

Agree with JimD. Better to lock the printing because then you can just give somebody the password if they insist on printing it. Otherwise you have to make a new file.

But still interesting. And thanks for the 2 sides thing as well.

Hmmm... not sure if I'd ever use that for anything aside from possibly a spec proof that I wouldn't want a client printing duplicates of. Otherwise, just seems a little too controlling for my taste. It seems a bit like forcing my standards on others. On top of that, there's nothing preventing someone from taking a simple screen shot of the PDF and printing it... where there's a will, there's a way. ;)
