But if this is true - Wouldn't all my client machines behave the same towards the Office 365?
I have 30 training machines with the same configuration and none of them will open PDF's.
THIS machine that I'm typing this msg on - have the same configuration - But have SharePoint 2010 installed.
It's another card playing in this game I belive.
What we want is the ability to click a link and open a PDF file in the browser from any part of the site, not just doc lib list views. That means public site, private site, wikis, blogs, publishing pages, application form pages...all of it. It just needs to open like the link on this page:
http://joshuabooker.com/ (adobe 10.1.blah not required)
Again, there are two requirements:
server side: SU2 installed on your O365 farm (not all farms have this yet)
client side: adobe 10.1.2 installed on your workstation
check your adobe versions.
I have Adobe 9.X, yet acrobat files open up in the browser.
wavemaster, what browser are you using? Are you sure they're in the browser or could they be opening locally in adobe with a single click. firefox has been doing that from the start, but I'm not aware of any that will open PDFs from O365 in the browser without a script. Tell us more.
OK - I have Adobe X on different machines - Win7 Pro machines are fully updated.
This issue cannot be based on Adobe X or other versions. The only machine that opens PDF's have IE8.
When I'm working on SharePoint in business the major issues is the strict vs. permissive settings and the Powershell command to allow .msg - .pdf and other filetypes.
Just checked this on a new machine - This can not be only on the Adobe versions or the SU2 on O365.
Then other Win7 machines with Adobe x should have worked to.
Those two requiremens you list are fullfilled.
Sorry for causing all this confusion.
It turns out that the attachments in a document library on my Office 365 Sharepoint site, actually live on my on-premise server. These open up in the browser.
Attachments that were uploaded to Office 365 Sharepoint library, they don't actually open up in the browser. I can download them and then they open up in the browser.
Apparently this sophisticated functionality (previewing Acrobat files) is only available in Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007.
Wavemaster - Do you have Adobe Acrobat installed?
Then it's only me left :-)
But my PDF still opens directly in O365 :-)
This remains true - after long and hard testing.
PS: Worked with testing and servers since 1992. So dont down me here guys!
Does your document live locally, or on a Office 365 server?
It isn't enough to simply have acrobat X you need a specific update version 10.1.2

It lives on Office 365.
Everyone - let's not lose sight of the fact that no matter how SharePoint Online integrates with Acrobat (and I personally think that it's great that Microsoft and Adobe are working on this integration), we can all get behind the simple idea that Microsoft should add an "Open" option when clicking on a PDF file instead of just "Save / Cancel".
If enough people ask Microsoft to add the Open option for PDF files in IE, I would hope they would listen and add that feature.
Best solution - You click a PDF file and it opens in the browser (or in Acrobat if you have Acrobat setup to not display in a browser)
2nd best solution - You click a PDF file and it offers "Open / Save / Cancel" in IE (the way it does in other browsers)
Jezzes Josh - You are so right!!!
My only opening pdf machine have 10.1.2 version (for a long time) , but the rest have 10.1.0 (latest install from adobe.com).
Parden my language - but how the hell, doubleshit and further on - don't this version download from adobe.com.
.....and Josh - How long have this version been around?
