You can store and access SharePoint files when you’re working in Acrobat or Acrobat Reader on your desktop.
Your SharePoint administrator must configure the SharePoint server to enable editing of PDF documents. See this TechNote for details.
To access or save to SharePoint resources, you can use the following options:
- Add a SharePoint account and access files using the account (Connectors) from the Home > <SharePoint_account_name> view.
- In the file open and close dialogs, use URL of the document library; for example, http://mysharepointserver/mysite/mydoclibor
- (Windows) Mapped network drives
The safest way to work on a PDF file that resides on a SharePoint Server is to check out the file. Other users cannot edit the file while you're working on it.
To check out a PDF file, do one of the following:
(Windows) Using Internet Explorer, navigate to the PDF file on the SharePoint portal. Click the document or choose Edit Document from the file pop-up menu.
In Acrobat or Acrobat Reader:
- Choose a file from Home > [Connector / Account Name].
- You can provide the URL of the document library or complete path to the file in the Open and Save dialogs if you have the following preferences disabled:
Edit > Preferences > General > Show online storage while opening files: disable by default.
Edit > Preferences > General > Show online storage while saving files: enabled by default.
- Using connectors: If you have above preferences enabled, you can access the file locations using the [Connector Name] from the left pane.
If you are required to sign in to the SharePoint server, enter your user name and password when prompted.
You cannot edit a document offline.
When you complete your edits, you can check the file into the SharePoint server. Other users can see the changes. If versioning is enabled, SharePoint also manages version history for the file.
