Dear Support team,

I have a question regarding the Acrobat functionality when working with powerpoint.

When opening a PDF file on a sharepoint folder, Acrobat always asks whether I'd like to "Check Out & Open" a file, or just "Open" a file. When using Acrobat in 99% of the cases I don't need to do any modifications/comments/etc to the file, so I would prefer to avoid this question dialogue and proceed to opening the file. Is there any way to disable the checkout functionality in Sharepoint (i.e. open all files as read only")? Please will you let me know.

Kind regards,

Alexander

Hi Alexander,

Sorry for the delay in response.

There is no direct option to disable the "Check Out & Open" tab when you open the file from Sharepoint in Acrobat.

However, you may try the steps mentioned here Possible to disable SharePoint check-in/out prompt without disabling all SharePoint integration or Services integration to disable the integration by editing the registry.

Check if that helps you in any way.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Meenakshi, thanks for the above solutions, but they arenb't working for me. Are there any other working ideas out there?
