    Showing PDFs (2000/SP-3)

    I'm using shared borders and would like to display a PDF in the main window portion of the site. I don't want the Acrobat Reader toolbars to show up either. Can anyone help?

    You can try doing a screen capture and saving it to a .jpg file?

    First, let me say, as a user I would prefer to have the toolbar. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    If you simply let IE decide how to display a PDF, I suspect you will not be able to control it. But... maybe you can invoke it using an OBJECT tag, the way Flash objects are embedded in web pages? I have no idea how to do that, but perhaps you could find some tips at Adobe's site.

    I second jefferson, in fact, my personal pref is always to have a PDF open in a secondary window. Gives me more control, as often PDF's are quite large.
    Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>...

    In this new site, the United States Patent and Trademark Office is providing access to documents from its files. Unfortunately, its design involves two wide documents side by side... Here's a sample: http://ttabvue.uspto.gov/ttabvue/v?pno=91120198 (click a document link to show the PDF frame)

    Part of your question necessarily can (should?) be addressed by editing/creating the PDF document(s) in question. The following assumes that you're using Adobe Acrobat 5.0's to create/edit the PDF file, using the File-Document-Open option the following dialog box is used to modify the User Interface Options (note the check boxes for hiding the various Acrobat Reader toolbars) :
