I'd like to have SharePoint handle PDFs in such a way that PDFs will open in a browser, but will Edit in Acrobat. It seems that I can have one or the other:
If the DOCICON.xml is configured to show:
<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdficon_small.gif" OpenControl="AdobeAcrobat.OpenDocuments" />
No "Edit Document" or "Edit in Acrobat" menu appears, but I am able to view the PDF in a browser. However, if my mapping looks like this:
<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdficon_small.gif" OpenControl="SharePoint.OpenDocuments" />
I can edit in Acrobat beautifully, and it works with the drop-down menu per document, but it won't display the PDF in the browser, even after changing the settings in Acrobat/Reader to Edit -> Preferences -> Internet -> Display PDF in Browser but will show the popup of "Read Only" or "Edit" radio buttons.
I've also tried to fool with the client-side application, on the list and the site collection to open documents in browser by default. No change.
