Did you know that you can work with PDF files on Microsoft Sharepoint repositories from within Acrobat/Reader X? You can avoid the cumbersome process of browsing to the PDF and using the web interface. Acrobat/Reader now have built-in support for working on PDF files in SharePoint repositories.
You’re all set if you have the latest version Acrobat or Reader. But before you can do that, your SharePoint administrator needs to enable this functionality on the server configuration. If they have not done it alreday, send them an email or file an IT request:
Subject: Enable Acrobat/Reader- Sharepoint integration
With Adobe’s latest release, it is possible to work on PDF files hosted on Sharepoint directly using Adobe Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader. For the clients computers, no special setup is required.
On the server side, however, a small change is required. The following link explains the details: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/869/cpsid_86901.html
Could you please configure the server so that we can all benefit from this feature.
As soon as the server is updated, you’re all set!
