We’ve just added a new capability to Office Web Apps. On SkyDrive, Outlook.com, and Office 365 you can view PDF files using the Word Web App. PDFs attached to mail or stored in SkyDrive are quickly viewable in the browser regardless of device or whether you have PDF viewing software installed.
Additionally, for SkyDrive you can convert PDFs to editable Word documents. This allows you to “release” the text in PDFs without requiring PDF editing software. Please note that the conversion does not change the PDF itself. Converting creates an entirely new file. Also, depending on the content of the original PDF, the formatting of a converted Word document may vary from the original.
Since we enabled this new feature we have displayed millions of PDFs for our users. But if you haven’t had a chance to try this yet, here’s how you can:
On SkyDrive, just clicking a PDF will view the file in Word Web App. If you prefer to download the file to display in your current PDF viewer, right click and select Download.
With Outlook.com, select “View online” at the bottom of the PDF attachment icon. To download, click the icon anywhere else.
Using Outlook Web App, hover over the PDF attachment icon to reveal the Preview link. Click it to use Word Web App. To download, click the icon.
We recently rolled out to SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint; however, after we enabled this capability we heard that customers began to encounter issues.
We spent some time investigating and determined that the best course of action right now is to temporarily remove the PDF viewing capability from Office Web Apps on SkyDrive Pro and SharePoint Online. We are working to resolve the issues as quickly as possible so that we can restore the functionality in a way that resolves the current issues.
From within the Word Web App you can also download the PDF by clicking “Download” in the toolbar at the top of the document.
