Is there a way to edit the access level for a document without having to right-click, choose the access pane, looking up the username etc.
I want to make a button you can push (in the form) which sets access to the document so that only the user who pushed the button can see it/edit it. How do I do that???

You put a field on the form that has two fields one author field and one reader field. And the button puts the username of the person who is pussing the button in these two fields.

Ok, you are close to getting the points, but....
As default all users must be able to read documents in the db. It's only when the user actually pushes the button the he restricts the access to the db to himself.
How do I enter all users as default value in the reader field? That should do it right?

You can let the button create the fields or enter "*" as default for all users.
