interactive pdf preview

Post by nbodake » Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:23 pm

Hello All,

I am running community version 6.3.6. Everything is working fine except I have few interactive PDF files like web form. You fill some details, select options in it. But when I try to preview it in OpenKM, I see below error:
Please wait...

Other PDF preview works fine. Kindly provide suggestions.

It happens in any computer in your network, no? otherwise, check several computers
Can you share with us some of these PDF ? we will try to reproduce the issue.
What is the value of your system.previewer ?
In the user profile do you have enabled the option Acrobat plugin preview ?

Unfortunately I cannot provide PDF files as they are data sensitive. Yes, it happens in OpenKM that the preview doesn't work. If I download the PDF and try to open it in Acrobat Reader (latest upgraded version), it works. If I fill the information in PDF and export it, then upload in OpenKM then it shows preview but not with the actual PDF. I also uploaded the file to https://demo.openkm.com and found same error with it.

The value is set as below:

Code: Select all

system.previewer	Select 	flexpaper
I didn't find option to enable Acrobat Preview plugin in user profile. Can you confirm where is it?

The option is in the main tab ( general tab ).

Without a document for testing, we can not help you. Create a non-sensible document and share with us.
