Hello, 

 

Testing the Beta with 3 users in my ORG just to get a feel for bugs that they come across. 

 

noticing with PDF's edge cant open a pdf in adobe natively within the app. Currently you need to download the file first then open the pdf within the app, but this is less time efficient. 

 

I would like something built so adobe can open the pdf within the browser instead of downloading the file. 

 

Thanks!

Hello @adds97

 

Thanks for the feedback! 

Microsoft Edge can natively open PDF files directly, without needing to download the file.

With inking and opening MIP protected files already available with full support for accessibility, we are working on adding more features as per your feedback.

 

Are there some specific features that you are looking for that are specific to Adobe?

 

Thanks!

I've reported the same issue via Feedback Hub. Our users need to use Adobe Acrobat to open PDFs as for some reason Edge does not print PDFs in the same way Adobe does (and this is when using the system print dialog). As some of our PDFs need to be printed to very specific dimensions on pre-printed stock, Adobe is (currently) the only option for us. If we use Edge the printouts are misaligned. The need to download then manually open each PDF in Edge is tedious.
