Very annoying scenario for my end users:
They browse the web, find a useful PDF with good info and want to share it on our intranet. They open the PDF in the browser (IE8) and click on the Save a Copy icon.
A Windows dialogue pops up, and they can click on My Network Places to find a Document Library on our intranet where they would like to save this PDF (SP2010 environment).
Error: You cannot save in the folder specified. Choose another location.
This error forces them first to download a copy of the PDF, and then browse to the doc library, then upload.
Ideally, they could skip the first steps of saving to their local machine. And also be taken to the Edit Properties Form to enter meta data right away. Because if they upload to a doc library with thousands of documents, they will not find that doc anymore. They are then discouraged.
Is there any way to make this process faster/better for my users? Because it is a real day-to-day annoyance and a time consumer.
