    Hello there, I am new to this forum and have a question. Does anyone know how to download or transfer a pdf file to good reader that has already been downloaded into the library?
    Thanks,

    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    As far as the PDF, where did you get it originally?

    If your iPad is registered to your husbands computer thru iTunes, then you need to attach your iPad to the computer and open iTunes and select your iPad in the left hand column. A Summary screen will open, select the Apps tab at the top of the screen and you will see a listing of all of your apps. Toward the bottom of the page you will see "File Sharing", look for the Goodreader app and click on it. Now on the right hand side where it says "GoodReader Documents", you will see an "Add.." button, click on the "Add.." button and search for the pdf's that you want and select them. They will be added to GoodReader immediately. Watch the box at the top of the screen where the apple icon usually is, and you will see them transferred to your iPad, look quick, it only takes a couple of seconds.

    You can download the free iBooks app and transfer them using iTunes to iBooks.

    You can mail PDFs to yourself and using the built in iPad email app you can use OPEN IN and send them to iBooks or GoodReader.

    You could place you PDFs in your DROPBOX and use Goodreader to grab them from that location.

    I have the same question- no one has answered yet

    I have this same question. All the responses so far give instruction on how to get a PDF on the iPad. That's not what she's asking to do.

    I have a PDF already downloaded on my iPad and stored in iBooks. I also have goodreader installed on my iPad. I want to open THAT PDF in goodreader so I can make edits.

    Is this possible to do directly? Or do I have to transfer another copy of the PDF fresh to open in goodreader?

    iBooks has very limited export functionality and is missing the Open In... feature. Therefore there is no direct way to open a PDF from iBooks in another app.

    On work-around would be to open the PDF in iBooks, tap once to activate the controls, then sent it as an email to yourself and finally from Mail open it in the app of your choice.
