HT4227: iBooks: Viewing, syncing, saving, and printing PDFs on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Learn about iBooks: Viewing, syncing, saving, and printing PDFs on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

HT4227 I have many PDFs in my iBooks , but I cannot transfer them out or email them? I'm trying to view them in a PDF reader but its as if these docs are permanently stuck in there even though everything is stored in iCloud.  I can't figure this out.

My PDFs stored in iBooks cannot be transferred out reviewed by other apps this is very frustrating because I have many manuals documents and check list all in iBooks but it seems that once you choose to "open in iBooks" this document is now stuck trapped inside here and I am unable to view any of these PDFs with a more dance PDFReader.


Yes I'm enabled iCloud on both my PDFReader's and in my iPad for my documents.  I can't even select one of my PDFs to transfer into my dropbox or another cloud storage device so again these documents which I've collected over the last few months or now trapped in this horrible PDF reading program.
