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.

Simply turn on versioning for the Document Library. It will retain the different versions of the PDF file. SharePoint doesn't care what type of file it is when it comes to keeping file versions.

This is listed in several places on the interwebs. But I suggest look at this official KB article: SharePoint 2010 - Configuring Adobe PDF iFilter 9 for 64-bit platforms, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357.

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 ...

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.

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

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 ...

You need to install the 64-bit IFilter if your WSS/MSSX is 64-bit, otherwise 32 bit is the one to use. You cannot just install the reader on the server (which I do not think you should do at all - there are currently no more unsecure product than Acrobat Reader!).

I have evaluated a lot of paid solutions, as the open ones were not flexible enough or did not parse HTML correctly. The best solution I could find was Aspose. It's not a cheap component, but does the work pretty well. http://www.aspose.com (paid)

The Adobe IFilter allows to index all searchable PDF files (i.e. not the ones created by scanning a document or a book), regardless of software that was used to generate them.

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 ...

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.

If you're running SharePoint 2010 enterprise then you should use word automation services see Convert Word Document to PDF Using SharePoint and Word Automation Services

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

The syntax you want to use would be something like this: <object data='url/to/file.pdf' type='application/pdf' width='600' height='600'> <p>It appears you don't have a PDF plugin for this browser.</p> </object>

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, ...

Use content editor web part:- (http://www.sharepointanalysthq.com/2011/03/embedding-pdfs-into-sharepoint-2010-pages/) First you need to find the URL to the PDF that you wish to view, after that you are ready to go! Step 1) Add a Content Editor Web Part to the page Step 2) Click on the ‘Edit HTML Source’ button for the Content Editor Web Part (not the ...

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 ...

Image PDFs do behave differently than those created from word docs. You can probably get some OCR tools to help. Its been awhile, but I think KnowledgeLake had the ability to OCR and auto-index some of the scanned documents.

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(); ...

I have repeated my answer to the same question on StackOverflow below. Shameless plug, as I worked on this product, but try the PDF Conversion Services. Scalable, reliable, optimised for server use, adds new formats all the time (see new DXF and DWG support), supports watermarking, PDF Security etc. Has a web services based interface, so ...

Just FYI, Fast Search for SharePoint (client access licence included in SharePoint Enterprise), allow indexing PDF files without installing an ifilter. Edit: CAL is included, not server

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 ...
