Bad advice! you should not just blindly enable permissive mode. First of all there are good reasons why SP2010 does not render files in browser, PDF inluded, pr default. The reason is client object model. PDF allows for Javascript execution, and though to some degree the threath model is the same as with SP2007, CLient object model makes it alot easier to ...

We usually use print style sheets (<link rel="stylesheet" href="print.css" type="text/css" media="print" />) to do this. Check this guide: http://www.webcredible.co.uk/user-friendly-resources/css/print-stylesheet.shtml I know Muhimbi has a good third party PDF generator, but I havent tried it.

This change was made due to security reasons in SharePoint 2010. You know that PDF actually stands for "Potentially Dangerous Files". You can change it to a less secure mode, per Web Application, in Central Admin. Just change the Browser File Handling property to Permissive and your good to go.

I had this problem and found a solution. I had to make sure the PDF file type was added to the list of file types on my search service application. To verify this go to Central Admin > Manage service applications > Search service (your instance) > File Types (found under the crawling section). If pdf isn't there then add it. Once I restarted the search ...

You also need to install the iFilter from Adobe in order to allow SharePoint to index the PDFs. The configuration changes you made simply tells SharePoint to index PDF, but the iFilter is actually what does the work. Start here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357

This is a known issue. It can be fixed by going to the Web Application General Settings and setting the Browser File Handling to permissive. I've also been told that it can be left at strict, but through PowerShell, add a white list exception for PDFs. I haven't stumbled across that though.

Ah. My literal use of the configuration instructions document was the problem. It suggested adding this line to the docicon.xml file: <Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdf.gif"> This xml fragment doesn't close the tag, so my resulting xml document wasn't valid. Closing the tag like so <Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdf.gif" /> And restarting IIS ...

It is not a good option if you require generic print functionality but SQL Reporting Services is great for building custom reports and it comes with different built in export functions. However it requires some extra work eg. you need to build your reports separately, you need to take care of integration etc. so maybe it is overkill for your requirements. ...

First, to open the file in browser, go to Central Admin -> Select Your Web Application --> Select General Settings -> Select "Permissive" under browser file handling (also read the notes explaining the setting) as shown below: For PDF icons, you need to associate .pdf with an icon and upload the icon image to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft ...

I have not seen anyone create a workflow capable of converting word files to PDF out of the box, but i have seen third party solutions that enable workflow features like this in SharePoint. read this link, http://blog.muhimbi.com/2012/02/convert-document-types-using-pdf.html

as Nadeem Yousuf said, I also generate report in SharePoint with SSRS approach check this link : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6a3b7fc3-3d91-4d12-8371-42ea12e74517 basically, you develop button at webpart with specified url, when the url is hit, it will automatically generate format based on your choice, example : PDF for pdf, WORD for doc, ...

When you open the PDF inline in browser you get a "page expired" when you go back? Where do you open the document from? Is it from inside a document library or from custom code? I am asking this because getting a "page expired" is connected to doing a POST request (postback) and accessing from a document library is a GET request. Caching can also be an ...

SharePoint Word Automation Services allows you to do this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff181518.aspx Relevant code from that article: ConversionJobSettings jobSettings; ConversionJob pdfConversion; string wordFile; string pdfFile; // Initialize the conversion settings. jobSettings = new ConversionJobSettings(); ...

You could set the web application browser file handling setting to strict. This means that SharePoint will tell the browser to open the file in the client application, instead of opening it in the browser itself.

This is controlled by the installation of Acrobat itself, not SharePoint. By default, PDFs open in the browser but many corporate installs force it to open in a separate window for support reasons. Many users do not realize they are viewing a PDF instead of a web page and get confused when the normal web tools do not work properly. The bigger the ...

Needing to review and approve content is precisely one of SharePoint's core use-cases, so that requirement is definitely not an issue :) I would have the reports sent to separate Document Libraries, with permissions set up so only the relevant people can view them. Set up Content Approval on those libraries, so when they are added, they need to be viewed ...

Call me biased, but the company I work for has a very flexible SharePoint PDF Conversion solution that you can probably use to achieve what you are after. I'll keep the marketing babble to a minimum, just visit this page for more information Your requirement is very specific and it is unlikely that anyone will support that functionality in a generic ...

You can try to see if a permssion issue. Change the permission of the headers from the browser. Please, go to the Central Administration, then Manage Web Application. Select the WebApp where you have the pdf files. Then Click on the Ribbon on General Settings, General Settings again. In the PopUp, in the section Browser File Handling, click on Permissive. ...

Not out of the box. You would need to write your own PDF processor that accomplishes this either in an Event Receiver where the generated PDFs go. You could also create a custom action that you use instead of the word automation services to convert to PDF and accomplish this at the same time.


2

There is a tool that may or may not help, Muhimbi PDF Converter. I haven't used it, but I have heard good things about it. But like John says, there is no direct integration with PDFs, so you'll need a workflow/timer job/event receiver to do something after the forms are submitted.

We raised the issue with Microsoft Support and apparently it's a bug. Will know more soon. In the meantime, the fix is to disable PDF's from being rendered in OWA: Get-SPWOPIBinding –Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWOPIBinding -Confirm:$false Control whether PDFs open in Word Web App or the default PDF reader ...

Each Document Library in SharePoint 2010 actually has a property titled BrowserFileHandling that is set based on the BrowserFileHandling selection at the Web Application level. SharePoint 2010 utilizes an enhanced security feature in Internet Explorer 8 and above to block the opening of file types it considers vulnerable to scripting or other attacks, such ...

You can do this at the list level in SharePoint 2010. Try this... $web = Get-SPWeb https://domain-name.com/site/web $list = $web.Lists["Library Name"] $list.BrowserFileHandling = "Permissive" $list.Update(); Gets a value that specifies the override of the web application’s BrowserFileHandling property at the list level. ...

It comes with both SharePoint Designer and Nintex workflow activities as well as a host of other PDF related functionality such as PDF Security, Merging and watermarking. More here.

I did this through a httpmodule that checks for the querystring PrinterFriendly=True and when that is set on any page in SharePoint, it swaps out the masterpage for a printerfriendly one. Here's some of the code: public void Init(HttpApplication context) { context.PreRequestHandlerExecute += new ...

In addition to the answer of ashish, there is some naughty bug with PDF's, permissive browserfile handling and SharePoint (well, IIS 7.5). depending on the pdf plugin used, the file will not be opened in your browser. It has something to do with a byterange in the header which is too long for the plugin, if I recall it correctly. We opened a case at ...

If I understand you correctly, you installed "Acrobat Reader 10". What you need to install is an iFilter. You can choose between different available iFilter, but when you want to stick with Adobe you need this one here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4025
