Is there a configuration in GPCTools to open an encrypted pdf, for example, without first having to save an unencrypted copy?
If not, how do you guys manage the unencrypted files after users are done using them?

    Hi Michael,

    thanks for your question. There is no option to access an encrypted file without storing a decrypted copy.

    Once done, either re-encrypt or delete the decrypted copy. If you are worried about your disk being read, activating FileVault and a screensaver with password is recommended.

    I'll leave this discussion open for others to chime in.
