Hi ,

 
I have created a pdf using Adobe (See attached pdf). 
1. Embed file (displayed as paperclip symbol in attached file) using adobe comment tool
2. Open Pdf in chrome
3. Click on paperclip  symbol, embedded file attachment annotation.
4. In chrome pdf viewer,  I expect the attachment to be open in new tab as it does in adobe. The attachment does not open chrome pdf viewer. 
 
Any idea on chrome/edge support of embedded file attachment.
 
 
Thank you
Ankita

Hi there

 

++ Adding to the correct suggestion by Bernd Alheit

 

Web browsers use their own PDF mechanism to display and render the PDF file and they are not Adobe dependant.

You may get in touch with Chrome/Edge support for more information .

Amal

Hi Amal, 

 

I am using chrome adobe plugin to view pdf in chrome so, it is adobe chrome plugin implementation. 

 

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adobe-acrobat/efaidnbmnnnibpcajpcglclefindmkaj?hl=en

 

 

Also, 

Is there any other way to have such an attachment and able to open it in web browser as well. For ex, add an attachment instead of embed using comment tool. 

If so, how do I create that attachment ?

This extension is for the conversion from web sites to PDF.  It doesn't display PDF files in Chrome.

You should not.

Chrome is a web browser not a PDF viewer, it doesn't support all PDF format features

Ask the developers of each web browser when they will implement full PDF support.
But in my opinion it will take a lot of patience…
