Tutorial :On-line PDF reader

Online viewer for PDF, PostScript and Word

  • The viewer software is open source, licensed under the GNU Public License. 
  • The viewer grew out of frustration over there never being good PDF or PostScript viewers or readers on all different operating systems and computers I use. Initially, the Adobe Acrobat PDF reader wasn't available for Linux.
  • The solution: a web interface! All major operating systems have somewhat functional web browsers available, so now I can view PDF and PostScript files wherever I want, and it can handle compressed files too.
  • Better user interface
  • Convert to different formats
  • Page layout
  • Better error messages
  • Better feedback
  • Increase speed (possibly by only converting pages on demand, instead of converting all like now)
  • View documents in more than 256 colors
  • Page zoom
  • Bookmarklet, Greasemonkey inline link translation
  • Q: How long will my document be available? A: Documents are cleared from the viewer three days after they where last viewed. The cache may be purged more often.
  • Q: Will it install under Windows? A: Beats me! I've heard several people try, but I don't know if they've ever succeeded.
  • Q: What makes these features possible? A: In one word: Open Source (oops! that was two words...). In several words: Ghostscript, php, wvWare, Apache, ImageMagick, gnu wget, gnu zip, Linux and so on. 

  • Will PdfMeNot always be free?
           Yes, PdfMeNot will always be free in its current form..
  • Is PdfMeNot available for license?
         No, at this time PdfMeNot is not available for license.
        You are however free to link to it and use the    tools to embed documents on your site or
        upload them for viewing.
  • Is a version of PdfMeNot available to download so that I can use it locally or on my server?
         No, unfortunately at this time PdfMeNot is not available for local or server use. You are
         however free to link to it and use the tools to embed documents on your site or upload them
         for viewing.
  • How long will uploaded pdfs stay on the server?
        Local pdfs that you upload will be deleted if they've not been viewed for 14 days or more.
        Pdfs on the web will be cached for a maximum of 2 days before we try fetching them again.

  • Is there a way to open the pdfs on a particular page within the document?
        Not at this time.
  • Is it possible to set a zoom value?
         Not at this time. No.
