I just got my ipad and instaled the latest Adobe reader. When in Safari, I click on pdf files and a small wheel in the doc I clicked on spins then nothing else happens. My wife has and ipad 2 and she is able to go to the same websites and open the same files.
I just got my IPad 2 and I can't get it to open .plp.pdf links in Safari. It will open links that end in .pdf only but not those ending in .plp.pdf. I've got iBooks and Stanza installed and these don't open the PDF either. It essentially opens a blank document in these apps. The links open fine on my Windows machine and on my MacBook.
I just got the new iPad. I had some files on my laptop mp3s and mpeg4 which I could listen and watch on iTunes without issue. Decided to transfer them via yousendit cos laptop needs a new charger. When I tried to download safari couldn't open the zips and then would only open other files in QuickTime.
I've seen in some post that you can't download docs from Safari to use it in other apps in the iPad, but in the guided tour of the Pages app in apple.com says that it's possible to open files "downloaded from the web, including iwork.com"
I've been searching for awhile but haven't found an answer yet: is it possible to open a link to a .doc file from the Internet and open it with a word processing app on the iPad?
I believe pages does this, but I was wondering if that's for certain and if any other word processing apps, like quickoffice, do it as well. This is for school use: I want to download a word document and edit it on my iPad, then save it to my dropbox account. I don't want to spend all the money on an app just to experiment to see if it will work the way I need it to.
Just picked up a baseline 16GB WiFi only Ipad 2 days ago, and beginning to upload all my work documents onto it. I use mostly Word and PDF files. I've already downloaded and installed Pages, iBooks, and a free app called iPDF.
The problem I have is that I can get Word docs to open up fine, but it seems like the iPad hiccups a lot on bigger PDF files.
i.e., I have a large PDF file that is about 100 pages long, most of which is in xls spreadsheet format, and blueprints of floorplans (schematics). The pages with the spreadsheet loads just fine. Once it gets to the drawings, it chokes. If I try to zoom in, it chokes. If I rotate the iPad, it chokes again. Is there a work-around to this problem? I want to be able to present the file to my coworkers/boss and examine something without embarrasing myself.
2nd question I have is: is the Spotlight the only method of organizing the work documents? Is there no way of, say, creating a folder on the desktop, like my MBP?
Other than that, I'm really happy with my purchase. I don't have to lug around my MBP anymore, instead just whip out the ipad during the commute!
I have three questions about the use of the iPad. 1. I would like to use it for editing work I do.Need to have Safari open,copy content from a website,then paste in spreadsheet (Numbers). Is this possible? Can I have two windows open (Safari & Numbers) at the same time? 2. I have a large library in iPhoto on my MacBook.I need to do some photo editing.Sift through a couple of years of photos,delete some, crop some... Is this something I could do both on the iPad and on iPhoto on my MacBook?Perhaps take in some of my library at a time,do the work on the iPad,then export back to my MacBook to store them? 3. I have a Netflix account (5/at a time).Can I stream to the iPad for no extra charge from my "watch now" Netflix stuff.
Interesting thing occurring on my iPad. If I open a new tab in safari or open a link on a page, it goes to the wanted page. But then switches to a graphic saying something about "someone doesn't like you, and you f**ked up" it then goes to a website, either a phone tracking website or something called [URL] This doesn't just happen on one website I visit, it occurs on numerous websites.
I have Disk Aid on my PC. I can apparently sucessfuly move files to my Ipad but when I use FileApp pro I cannot find the files anywhere on the Ipad, yet they appear on my PC looking into the Ipad. When I was using the FilePro free version I had no trouble finding the files.
I have a large number of .pdf documents which i organize trough an excel-file and open them via hyperlinks in this file. Now I want to do the same think on my ipad, but hyperlinks in numbers do not work. I tried to create an pdf with hyperlinks, but I was not able to do so + I think the link would not find the files on my excel anymore..
Just been to a web site and tried to open a video file but after down loading it try's to load it in drop box or similar. Why is this the case, as I don't have a dropbox active Not able to see the video
I've been googling around looking for an app that can open .c4 image files. I work in the electronic components business and I deal with military drawings in a .c4 file extension. In our windows computers we use Lucent viewer but I haven't been able to find anything for iPad or Mac. Is there any app that will open this type of file?
Im running a first generation iPad on iOS 5.1, with the latest version of iBooks. I'm opening PDFs in Safari, and then opening them in iBooks. I have to try opening them at least twice, often three times to get them to open.
