Viewing PDF's Online

July 24, 2014

Due to the way newer versions of popular browsers are now handling the process of viewing pdf's (which causes an issue for dynamic pdf's), we have altered the way all pdf's housed on the domain are handled so they are more accessible to everyone.

Now, when you click on a pdf link on the domain, depending on your browser type, you will either be asked to save the pdf, save or open the pdf, or the browser will instantly download the pdf to your computer.  Then you can proceed to open it like any other file.

If you are receiving the following error when trying to view a pdf that is not housed on the domain...

please wait...

...please see the PDF Viewer Issue page on our Web Management site for instructions on how to configure your browser to view those types of pdf's.

If you have any questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at:  650-5500.
