I have uploaded a large pdf file to my a weebly website. However, when the file is opened by my website visitors, it opens based on which browser and adobe viewer the user has in his/her computer.
What I am seeking is a way to have the PDF file open the exact way it does on my computer which allows the file to be searched by key word and/or phrase, which produces a search result that contains words both before and after the search term. I have read something about Adobe PDF Embed API but this is way above my level.
Also, I don't want the user to be able to download the file but I do want the user to be able to print selected pages.
Question: Is this possible and if so, does anyone know how/where I can hire the right individual to perform this service?
It's possible to do what you want but if Adobe PDF Embed API is way above your level, you're going to need help. The Extract API can be used in conjunction with the Embed API to do create the feature that you want.
Is this something that you can do for me, for a fee?
My project is trying to let my customers open up (without downloading/saving) and use my protected PDF file, which I am currently updating and will have about 5,000 pages. The file represents about 200 similar/quarterly publications which I have all linked together to make one searchable file.
I could... but I'm considerably more expensive than other consultants that are capable of this level of integration. It's a fairly lightweight project.
Thanks for the info. Do you know a good way to have my project completed for a reasonable price, where to post an add?
