SPS V2: Adobe PDF

  Asked By: Wayne    Date: Oct 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 720

Does anybody know why a PDF file will not open in its own application
when trying to open the file from within the portal? I have the full
version of Adobe on my computer and the file still opens within Internet

It's an IE setting - if you have the Acrobat Reader plugin installed it will
always open  there first. You'll need to remove the plugin.

also there is an option in Adobe Preferences to prevent file  to open  in the
browser. I had same problem and changed setup to have the file to open in the
Acrobat application.

forgot about that. They both do the same thing, the Adobe route is a
bit easier to navigate though...

Anyone know of any development now or in the future that would sit a
quickbooks "type" application over sharepoint or right into it? Will the new
Microsoft small office accounting module play well with it? It is due out
this year and sits on office 2003.
Currently, I port Quickbooks info via their SDK to sharepoint using the data
connections. This is kind of a hassle. I'd much rather see an accounting
module native to it.
Any hints? Infopath is cool and all, but like it was mentioned, pretty
expensive on a per terminal basis plus I'm no exactly sure how invoicing and
sales receipts are handled etc...

because pdf  file is already integrated with IE

Thanks for all the replies for this issue. But now I have another
related issue.

I have the full version of Adobe Acrobat which allows me to edit PDF
files. I uploaded a PDF file  into the portal. I click on the file and it
asks me to Open or Save, I select Open. I work on the file and click
Save. But when I go back into the portal, it does not update my file
with my changes. I'm wondering where it's saving my changes to?

Of course it works when I save it to my computer, work on it and then
upload it back into the original location. Then it shows my changes.

I know that SharePoint is not integrated with PDF like it is with Office
and I don't expect it to work like the Office product.

Any recommendation?

It's probably saving to your local machine in documents or some such, just
try one and look at the tree when you save, you should be able to manually
select where it saves on your network. I usually just upload and download
pdf.s but that's no biggy.

Tiff's should be fine if you have office pro on your sharepoint server it
should have Microsoft picture editor built-in. If you open  that up in
office/tools accessories (I think) you can tell it what types of pictures to
associate with Microsoft office and just select them all including tiff.s.

I think OTS it automatically includes jpg., gif. png. and bmp's.. Not sure
about Tiff. But see no reason why not.
