    Hi all, I've just bought my new ipad but there's something I can't understand while working with pdf files embedded ih html pages.
    For example, I'm just trying to explore the embedded pdf, but I cant, because of the missing scrollbar, or downloading the file (no buttons at all). How can i do?

    I can't link the page of what i'm talking about because of the post count, but I will soon. Hope you understand without
    Thank you!

    Download Goodreader. It is great for PDF file and has a function built in to download PDFs, once installed just put a "g" in front of http of the PDF and it will automatically download. There is another way from within Goodreader but that is the easiest.

    As far as scrolling when there is not scroll bars, use two dinges to scroll and it may work, two finger scroll works with a lot of things that look like you can't scroll them.

    Hope this helps.

    Two-finger scroll? Or try opening the page in GoodReader.

    Stupid iPad autocorrect changed it to dinges from my misspelled fingers. And if you don't know about two-finger scroll, it is great, you should try it.

    I went to that page. Good luck. I don't know how to deal with that type of PDF.

    Sorry man, I've never seen that technique used before. I tried everything, including opening it in a couple of alternate browsers. :confused:

    It is the way the PDF is embedded. It is not even supported in the full Safari (on the mac at my desk.) You are out of luck viewing that page. It found it supported in only IE8,7 and Firefox 3

    Here is the link for the PDF in that window.
