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:

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

Luckily, there is another option.


Step 1: Download and Install the Firefox Browser

Step 2: In Firefox, go to about:preferences



Step 3: Scroll Down to Applications


Step 4: Under Portable Document Format (PDF)  choose your PDF Program

Acrobat/Kofax/PDF Docs


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:

Other Options

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