PDF and Office 365

  • O365 PDF Complete Solution:

  • A big engineer organization in Scandinavia can not open AutoCad files in SharePoint.

    Any idea anyone :-)

    ...and guess what - can it be strict mode again!!!

  • Halleluja - I can now open PDF's directly in IE on office 365!!

    When did this happen??


  • This is SO STRANGE.

    Last night my maine machine is opening PDF,s with IE 9 - It still does!!!

    Cannot reproduce scenario on any other machines.

    (Testet with 2 of my owne and 2 machines with customers)

    I just now opened the PDF file on Office 365 because I thought I f... up.

    But it remains true - I can open PDF's directly from this machine I'm typing this message on.


  • you must have some PDF browser plugin that allows you to do that.

  • Like FireFox???

  • Still can open PDF's directly in IE9 without scripting and add on's.

    Only change that I can think of is that I have started to use Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with a PDF reader - But that shouldent make any difference.


  • Hello all,

    This is Jason Burnside from Microsoft Office365 SharePoint Support.

    To open PDFs directly in Adobe Reader from SharePoint Online, please complete the following:


    1. Make sure that you are using Explorer 32-bit Internet Explorer
    2. Make sure that the PDF is located in a SharePoint Online Document Library
    3. Make sure that you have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed


    Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    I will continue to monitor this thread if you have any additional questions.
