Hello,

Anyway by which i can secure my presentation, so i can share my presentation to others, but they wont be able to copy-paste from it?

Or any way to prevent such easy copy-paste work? I want to have them access to ppt, they can read but cant copy paste. and someway to insert warermark??

For PPT as well as doc/pdf files..

I'd look into One Drive. It has a web app to show PPT/DOC/PDF. You might be able to make it read-only and not downloadable so people can only access it through the web Office apps.

If that doesn't work then I don't know.

its kinda hard since they can print screen on it then make a copy from your slide
why dont you share the screen shot from your slide, put it on another presentation and watermark it

Many Years ago my Father attended a wedding
After the wedding the Photographer made available the photo's on line to purchase ( at an exorbitant price i might add)
"Protected from copying/downloading by javascript"
lets just say if your Browser displays the picture >>. their is a stored copy in your browser cache and images can be copied/saved from there. (enough said)

Convert the slides into images, possibly with watermark, then make a presentation from the images
Defenatly Watermark the Images you use for the Presentation in any online Document
the watermark is your proof of IP Ownership

Making all slides images and making new ppt is good idea but cumbersome for long ppt.

Any software which do it?

Or anyway to prevent users copying text from ppt? And how to do watermark in ppt?

Print the presentation as a pdf and add a watermark using adobe acrobat. You can then PP protect it and add restrictions.

I know that there are online tools to get by the protection, though I don't know if they work on the stronger algorithms.

Security options in adobe acrobat or foxit. You'll need the full version rather than the reader though, I believe.

Edit - You can likely get a free trial of something, if it's just a one off.

I did find this after a basic google search - https://www.locklizard.com/pdf_security/ I don't know if it's any good though.

possibly with watermark,
That was going to be my suggestion. It won't stop anyone from stealing your work, but it will prove they did not create it.

Yep, exactly this. The security options let you do a lot of things, like preventing copying of text in the PDF, it can even prevent printing or limit printing to low resolution.

Also, to protect power point presentations, I usually just export them as a movie file(MP4). That feature is built right into Powerpoint, and they won't be able to copy anything from that.
