pdf2swf doesn't always work for user-uploaded PDFs:
- Many CJK font rendering issues
- Barfs when a PDF is set "Do not Copy" or "Do not Print"
It would make my users very happy if they could see the PDF in-browser using a popular PDF plugin.
- On document details page: If the file type is PDF and the client browser has a PDF plug-in installed (Acrobat, Foxit, Safari/mac):
- Then display the PDF as an <object type="application/xpdf> instead of the Flash object
My company is currently dealing with hundreds of PDFs that don't display properly in Alfresco for above reasons. PDFs are supplied by vendors, so fixing them is going to be difficult.
