Google Docs - Option To Prevent Download When Sharing freddy2007 5/5/12 8:54 PM
Regarding Google Docs - I read where there should be an option to prevent the download of Spreadsheet Files from the List of files by right mouse clicking and picking the option from near the bottom of what comes up - I give other View Only access and Protect the sheet yet the previously mentioned option is never viewable to me and downloads of the files are happening - I am using Windows 7, Vista and XP on multiple lap tops and using Internet Explorer 9 and Google Chrome browsers without success in finding that feature among those offered. Is there anyone out there who can help me by telling me what I am doing wrong or is this something that should be there as I believe that just isnt't - Thank You

No, as far as I know this is not supported. Maybe on presentations, but not docs or spreadsheets.

Thank You for the response - It does seem to me that while I am able to give others "View Access" only as well as "Protect" the sheet that allowing them to download and do whatever they want with it does not support those efforts to protect ones work - If there is a better place for the post to be in I would appreciate any direction and assistance anyone is able to offer - I am easily lost when trying to navigate all the different places one can post - Thank You Very Much.
