I was wondering if there is a way to automatically download a PDF file from the internet and have it open automatically.
I have an internet link to a PDF document that automatically downloads when the Download link is clicked on the webpage. What I want to do is use the download link (URL) and have the PDF automatically open in RoboHelp. Is that possible? When I try to use the link that is used on the webpage, the download occurs to my PC in Downloads, but I would like to have it automatically open at the completion of the download.
Thanks in advance.

Your browser controls how downloads are treated - nothing in the link would control that (as far as I know). Either way, it wouldn't open in RH - it would open with whatever application you've associated with the file type (most likely Adobe Reader).
Thanks Jeff. I actually realized that after the fact. There would have to be an extension on the local network or within Chrome. I found one that we had on SharePoint and it opens into a browser on our local network. When it opens, it then has the option to OPEN in a browser or Download.
