Default MarkAsFinal - 'Edit Anyway' edit popup issue

After making the presentation as 'Mark as final', 'Edit Anyway' pop-up is showing, if I click on it, its allowing to edit the presentation. Actually I need to make as read only presentation. Please help me how to remove or disable the 'Edit Anyway' pop-up. This pop-up is coming in PowerPoint 2010 Beta version only not in PowerPoint 2007.

Steps to produce:

1) Open PowerPoint 2010 Beta and add some content.
2) Go To File -> Info -> Protect Presentation -> and click on Mark As Final option.
3) Come to content page, try to edit the content it won't allow to edit this is good.(This is my actual requirement). But on bottom of the menu bar 'Edit Anyway' pop-up is showing, if I click on that option, its allowing to edit entire content.
I don't want this 'Edit Anyway' option, how to disable/remove this option through c# code.


Thanks,
Govind

Hi,

I was having exactly the same problem as I wanted to send presentations to customers without them being able to modify them. I have just found the following trick:

1) Open normally your presentation in PPT/PPTX fromat
2) Save it as a slideshow (PPS/PPSX)
3) Using for example Windows Explorer find your PPS/PPSX presentation in its directory
4) Select your presentation and right-click on it
5) In the menu that appears select "properties"
6) In "Properties" mark the PPS/PPSX presentation as "Read-Only".

Now, when you send your presentation by mail, send the PPS/PPSX )not the editable PPT/PPTX). If the recipient tries to access the presentation interrupting the slide show by using ESC, the presentation just shuts down.

Test it by sending the presentation to yourself

Hope that helps

Regards
