On your iPhone or iPad, open the Chrome app Chrome. Go to the web page with the file that you would like to download. Tap the file you that you would like to. Believe it or not, you can print to PDF from any app without installing anything extra. It all works using the built-in Share Sheet of iOS. I can view pdfs in the chrome browsers from webpages, but when I try to "open in" and "copy to adobe reader" on my iPad it downloads the file.
You could also open the file in iBooks, Notes or a third party app like GoodReader. Is this what you meant? I happen to disagree with that statement.
The hidden gesture or 3D touch trick, on the other hand, is available from ANY app that supports printing. This includes 3rd party browsers and many other apps.
I learned another way to save web pages to PDF…from one of your columns! In the Sharing button window, choose the PRINT option, make an arcane swipe open gesture with thumb and forefinger, then save. The advantage is that uses the name of the web page as the name of the PDF.
Still my fave way to do it. Yeah they did make a mention of that method near the end of this article too which can also work using 3D touch instead of the zoom in gesture on an iphone 6s or later.
Another advantage of that method is that it is available from ANY app that supports printing including many if not all 3rd party browsers , whereas the create pdf button is only available from Safari. Kate, this is useful.

February 13, at I can only view the pdf in the web browsers. I've tried this with multiple pdfs from multiple sources from external websites that don't require logins and aren't encrypted and none of the pdfs work.
And yes, all my software and apps are up to date. And, incidentally, I've used this method on my iPhone 5 for years to view and "save" pdfs in adobe locally on my phone so I can access them even in airplane mode etc. Oct 9, 3: If you're used to a computer, where you can just toss files around and open them with any application that works, you need to recognize that iOS isn't like that.
Each iOS app manages its own data as objects.
So, when you try to open a pdf in Adobe, Chrome hands the URL to Adobe and it downloads the file to store inside itself. I've just tested this process with both GoodReader and the Apple iBooks app, both of which work fine.
And my pattern is similar to yours. I was testing with this https: Could you try it and see if it works? You may need to reinstall Adobe, or it may not be updated for iOS Oct 9, 4: I just installed Acrobat Reader from the app store, and transferred the file I referenced to it.
It displayed smoothly and is now stored in Acrobat. I strongly recommend that you reinstall Acrobat. Oct 9, 6: I'm trying to help another user with a similar but not identical problem. Since you downloaded the Acrobat app and it worked for you I'm wondering if the problem isn't specific to different iPad models.
I fthat's the case the best we can hope for is a workaround and the feedback link. It may be device-dependent, but it seems such a basic mechanism. Certainly with Chrome, I know it just hands off the link for the other app to download, because it's annoying to download a large pdf in Chrome, then download it again in GoodReader.
It's not the normal send to mechanism, which is pre-defined. Chrome somehow calls around to apps that are able to accept a given file probably MIME type. In this OP's case, it finds the app OK, but the handoff seems to go wrong. I suppose the Chrome code may not be entirely compatible with all platforms.
Hard to say. Truer words were never spoken. Sometimes I'd like to be able to ask, "Can you hand me your iPad for a minute? Oct 10, 4: This actually reboots the system. The normal "turn off" process using the cover or Sleep button just puts the computer to sleep, so it wakes up in the same state. Nov 27, 7: Ipad is using the latest update, iOs The files display normally on my ipad mini on iOs 9, and on my iphone 6s on iOs 9.
I'd say that's a wide enough range of apps to gather the problem is not that I'm expecting my ipad Pro to act like a laptop. Other pdf files that were already in Google Drive before downloading the ipad open just fine, so I tried sending a file to Google Drive using another device, thinking perhaps the ipad was not correctly moving it for some reason.
Then going back to Google Drive on the ipad, it displays blank pages.
I can get a pdf reader app to display it, but not an app that I need for annotating music notation. If the sheet music app were the only one displaying blank pages, I'd consider the app to be the problem.
Thanks to AirPrint being discontinued why? Mar 7, 4: Jan 4, I also switched over to Safari and the same problem saving blank PDFs or having corrupted file error messages didn't occur. Annoying but it works now. Communities Contact Support. Sign in. Browse Search.
