Unable to get PDF to appear on HTML page

I'm unable to get a two-page PDF file to appear on an HTML page.

 

I tried to link from the page to the PDF as an image.  The Properties panel says the link exists, with a self-loading of the page.

 

I also tried to link from the page to an HTML page containing the PDF.  Again the Properties panel says the link exists, with a self-loading page.

 

But the page loads as a white, blank page in Safari and Chrome on my Mac, and on my Iphone in Safari.

 

Also, I don't know where to store the _files folder that Acrobat made when I exported the PDF to Dreamweaver.  The _files folder contains an .htm file, two jpegs and a css file.  I tried them in my HTML pages folder and outside that folder and uploaded them, but the PDF still doesn't appear in my Web site in browsers on the Web.

Now I got the two-page PDF to appear in Safari on my Web site when viewed with my Iphone, but the Indesign formatting has been lost.

This is not a Dreamweaver question. See https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-in-browser.html

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

Personally I wouldn't try to export an InDesign file to HTML. It doesn't work. Simply upload the PDF and let the users interact that way. Otherwise, if you are trying to prototype from a design to DW, you may be better suited with XD to help with the responsiveness with your design as this is not something InDesign takes into consideration. If you want to post a link so we can see what you are working with we may be able to help further and provide additional recommendations.

This is a frequent question in the Acrobat, Acrobat Reader and Acrobat Reader Mobile forums.

 

PDF is NOT a native web file.  It relies on helper apps.  The manner in which PDF is displayed in browsers depends entirely on the user's device and which PDF viewers (if any) they have installed.

 

Native browser PDF viewers can't support everything.  Some formatting, calculations & interactive form elements will fail.  For best results, download the PDF file or form from the website and open it directly in the latest paid Acrobat Pro or FREE Acrobat Reader.

 

FREE Acrobat Reader -- view, comment & sign PDF.

Paid Acrobat Pro DC -- the complete solution for creating, viewing, printing and saving PDF files.

Hope that helps.
