    Download PDF from Moodle

    Let me apologize in advance if there is a similar thread but I tried searching but couldn't find one (possibly worded my search wrong). Anyways...My school is transferring from BlackBoard to Moodle. Same basic thing but Moodle is more reliable I guess. My teachers have posted documents (pdf, ppt, doc, etc.) on our class site for us and I've run into a bit of a problem. I'm trying to access a PDF but just can't seem to figure it out. When I click on the PDF it opens but the scroll bar is missing so I only get the top part. I had no problem with the powerpoint (was able to use "open in" to pull it to Evernote) but I can't seem to do the same thing for the PDFs. Is my only option to download the PDF on my desktop and then transfer it over? Or am I able to do it directly from the iPad? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Ya I did. I got "open" "open in new page" and "copy". The first two did the same think as clicking on the link (no scroll bar so I can't view the entire pdf). I tried copying it and then plugging the link in to my docas app and I kept getting a "failed to download" message. I found Moodle apps in the app store but they don't seem to great. I don't want to waste my money so I'm out of ideas lol :/.
