Viewing PDFs


[link to this post]
 
We have a problem viewing PDFs on Apple devices (iMac, iPad, MacBook).

Can you please have a look at my post: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/windows/t/4043653-m... and add any replies there.


Thanks.

Microsoft article on the topic. As a possible work-around, OpenOffice allows you to open Word documents and export them to PDF.

What a mess! Lots of possible solutions but head in the sand from MS!

Is there a guarantee that the Open Office route would export readable PDFs?

Software? Guarantees? Are you mad? crazy

Unfortunately, I can't test it for you. A cross-post in FC might help. wink

You could always try Cute PDF Writer - that seems to work on most devices for me smile

Installing additional apps is not easy - their environment is tightly controlled.

At which end is the difficulty? If at your end, ask the client to use Adobe Reader rather than the Apple reader (if this is the problem.) If at their end, try using OpenOffice to create the PDF file.

Tightly contested is for a MS version. laugh

I agree, but did use OO exclusively (On my other MBP). No probs either way. Much. laugh

By controlled I mean what can be installed - on any device: Macs, PCs and even smart phones.

Both ! Especially this end - but there will be numerous recipients and we cannot dictate to them all.
