The Correct way to view pdfs online when using Document Management Software

By November 8, 2018June 5th, 2022No Comments

When you are using NetDocuments or Worldox you want PDFs you view online to open on the desktop and not in the browser.


Worldox and NetDocuments have plugins that allow you to save directly to the Document Management System.   You have to be in the desktop version for that to work.  Therefore we have to disable the pdf viewing in the browser.

Scenario 1:  Adobe and Internet Explorer

Programs –> Manage add-0ns


Disable Adobe PDF Reader


Scenario 2:  Nuance and Internet Explorer

In Nuance go to Options –> Integrations and Disable View PDFS in Internet Explorer



Scenario 3:  Chrome and Adobe Reader

Install the Adobe plugin in Chrome and choose open in Adobe Reader



Scenario 4:  Chrome and Nuance

In Chrome go to : chrome://settings/content/pdfDocuments



Click the button so its green.
