The quick method to save Pacer\CM\ECF pdfs into NetDocuments

When someone clicks on a PDF document from a website,  they want to save it directly into their Document Management System like NetDocuments without downloading it to their desktop.

A good DMS will intercept the Save As process when the user clicks the button.  The problem with viewing a PDF on a website is that there is no Save or Save Button.

As shown above, we only have the option to download this pdf.

The first method I describe here:  https://optiable.com/saving-pdfs-from-a-website-in-netdocuments/

Depending on the website, this may or may not work.

Luckily, there is another option.

FireFox

As long as you use Pacer in Firefox, court PDF documents will automatically open in your default PDF program and can be saved into NetDocuments.

If you are a heavy Pacer user.  It might be easier to make Firefox your default browser and use NetDocuments in Firefox:  https://optiable.com/using-netdocuments-in-firefox/

Other Options

For Court websites, there are third-party integrations that will directly put Court Documents into your NetDocuments Account.
