Note: Chrome users will receive the following message if the new version of an interactive form is opened within the Chrome browser:
Interactive PDFs will not open in a Chrome PDF viewer, and must be opened in Adobe. These instructions will allow you to open PDFs automatically in Adobe from your Chrome window.
- Open a Chrome browser, and click the three dots at the right. Then click “Settings.”
- Scroll down and click “Show advanced settings.”
- Scroll down and click the arrow next to “content settings.”
- Scroll down and click the arrow next to “PDF documents.”
- Click on the slide button to open PDFs using a different application.
- The button will display blue. Your settings are changed to your default application, which should be Adobe. If you need help changing your default application, please call the OCIO Service Desk. You can now close the browser window.
- Now when you receive a PDF in an email and you click download, when you click the ^ next to the file name at the bottom of your browser window, you have an option to click “Open.” This will open the PDF in your Adobe viewer. The file remains in your Chrome downloads folder, and you can save it there after you edit it, or to any drive location you prefer.
