You can now use the Google Chrome on your iPad and iPhone to save web pages as high-fidelity PDF documents. The PDFs can also be. How many times have you found a great PDF while browsing the web on your iPad, but had no idea how to save it or download the PDF to your. You probably know that you can read PDF documents on your iPad, but did you know that you can also save PDF files to the iBooks app on.
Oct 9, 3: If you're used to a computer, where you can just toss files around and open them with any application that works, you need to recognize that iOS isn't like that. Each iOS app manages its own data as objects. So, when you try to open a pdf in Adobe, Chrome hands the URL to Adobe and it downloads the file to store inside itself.
I've just tested this process with both GoodReader and the Apple iBooks app, both of which work fine. And my pattern is similar to yours. I was testing with this https: Could you try it and see if it works? You may need to reinstall Adobe, or it may not be updated for iOS Oct 9, 4: I just installed Acrobat Reader from the app store, and transferred the file I referenced to it.
It displayed smoothly and is now stored in Acrobat.
I strongly recommend that you reinstall Acrobat. Oct 9, 6: I'm trying to help another user with a similar but not identical problem. Since you downloaded the Acrobat app and it worked for you I'm wondering if the problem isn't specific to different iPad models. I fthat's the case the best we can hope for is a workaround and the feedback link. It may be device-dependent, but it seems such a basic mechanism. Certainly with Chrome, I know it just hands off the link for the other app to download, because it's annoying to download a large pdf in Chrome, then download it again in GoodReader.
It's not the normal send to mechanism, which is pre-defined. Chrome somehow calls around to apps that are able to accept a given file probably MIME type.

Hard to say. Truer words were never spoken. Sometimes I'd like to be able to ask, "Can you hand me your iPad for a minute?
Oct 10, 4: This actually reboots the system. The normal "turn off" process using the cover or Sleep button just puts the computer to sleep, so it wakes up in the same state.
Nov 27, 7: Ipad is using the latest update, iOs The files display normally on my ipad mini on iOs 9, and on my iphone 6s on iOs 9.
I'd say that's a wide enough range of apps to gather the problem is not that I'm expecting my ipad Pro to act like a laptop. Other pdf files that were already in Google Drive before downloading the ipad open just fine, so I tried sending a file to Google Drive using another device, thinking perhaps the ipad was not correctly moving it for some reason. Then going back to Google Drive on the ipad, it displays blank pages.
I can get a pdf reader app to display it, but not an app that I need for annotating music notation. If the sheet music app were the only one displaying blank pages, I'd consider the app to be the problem.
Thanks to AirPrint being discontinued why? Mar 7, 4: Jan 4, I also switched over to Safari and the same problem saving blank PDFs or having corrupted file error messages didn't occur.

Not quite. Yes, there is a Files location named On My iMac, but it only allows creation of folders from other apps. There seems to be no way of storing a. Right, exactly. One thing to note is that the resulting pdf file is one often long page, unlike the other methods which break the pdf into normal pages. Another more serious issue is that often the resulting file is truncated.

And the first two methods, which are really one and the same except for the alternative of accessing via 3D touch or pinching to zoom depending on the device used, are available from ANY app -built in or 3rd party- that supports printing.
