Hi we have migrated our environment from 2010 to 2013. In Document libraries when trying to select the pdf files and try to edit the document it shows its been grayed out. I am having full administrative access on the sites and libraries. Please find the attached screenshot . Let me know if any one has solution for this.
This is a known issue in SharePoint 2013: PDF-Files cannot be edited directly.
Some workarounds until Microsoft might fix that:
- Manually Download the PDF, Edit it, Save it locally, Upload again.
- Use the "Open in Explorer" Button
- Implement PDFFIX.JS. Also note the discussion about HTTP and HTTPS. Put this on your Update-Checklist, as it might break after installing a Cumulative Update.
Please support the UserVoice-Idea linked above if you also face that problem and want it to get fixed by MS.
