If I have a pdf file on OneDrive on my laptop, how do I view it on my IpadMini?  I have Adobe Reader on it, but I can't figure out how to find my files.

Magnoliagrits,

Is the PDF document opened in Safari (the default web browser for iPad/iPhone)?  If so, please take a look at the Safari section of the FAQ document to open it in Adobe Reader.

How to open PDF documents in Adobe Reader for iOS (iPad on iOS 7 or 8 version)

Alternatively, you can

  1. Install OneDrive for iOS app on your iPad.
  2. Open your PDF document in OneDrive for iOS.
  3. Tap the More button (with three circles) in the bottom toolbar.
  4. Select Open in Another App.

  5. Select Adobe Reader for iOS.

Please note that any changes that you make to the PDF documents will not be saved back to OneDrive.  If you would like to save changes to PDF documents, it would be easier to use Acrobat.com as cloud storage.

Please see Help > Handbook > Acrobat.com and the Cloud for more information.

I don't know if there is a direct way of viewing PDFs from Microsoft OneDrive in Adobe Reader.

You may need to download the file to your device, then open it from there.

When I download it on my Ipad from my email account. It just opens it in a browser to read.  It doesn't seem to give me the option to save it on my Ipad anywhere. Do I need to do something special or have a special App or program to save it to?

If the PDF(s) were in your cloud.acrobat.com files account (free) you'd launch Adobe Reader and from within it you'd go into the account, select the desired PDF and view it with Adobe Reader Mobile.

However, as the file is in OneDrive you'd need to transfer/download the PDF to the iPad park it were you can get to it with Adobe Reader Mobile.

Be well...
