I would think you can add the PDF using iTunes. Yup. you can.
Connect the iOS device. Then launch iTunes. select the device and import the pdf onto the device. Now open iBooks on the iOS device, then touch the book collection button to select PDFs:
you will be able to select:
- Purchased Books
I am afraid I do not understand to your response. The original question was how to view the pdf on your iPAD. To download the file your Mac, right click (or hold the control key while clicking), then select "Download Linked Files As…"
then save the file your computer, then import that file using iTunes onto your iPad. If that is not what you want to do, then please, restate the question.
seems to be some confusion on my end.
this is the problem.
- I can get to the help file on my ipad. no problem!
- i want to download the file to my ipad. there does not appear to be a option to print the file as a pdf on the ipad.
- so i then go to the imac. the file cannot be accessed thru my imac. "server cannot find it" when the link is copied to the imac.
- in fact the link cannot be copied, you have to manually input it into the imac. if you try to copy it on the ipad, it will open the link automatically on the ipad.
- if i could open the file on my imac, i could then " print as pdf" and e-mail it to myself.
- so back to my original question. "how do i download it to my ipad" using the ipad.
- i do not have access to a printer.
all i can really find is
P.S. got to leave for work now.
Per above "there is no internet nor cell phones, etc available where i work as it is a "required high security issue".
i need to use the help manual at work.
i could do that and put them all together thru Aumator combining pdf files. Very simple to do.
Buttttttt ! I am not able to bring it up on the iMac. I keep on getting the message "safari cannot find the server". Probably because I am still using Snow Leopard.
There has to be a simpler way. I cannot believe Apple would set it up like this.
Surely someone at Apple, who has a modicum of intelligence, must realize that the internet is not available everywhere.
I can open the said url:
in Firefox 17.0.7esr or Safari 5.0.2 under OSX 10.6.5 and click on the small icon at the top right corner of the web page, which then shows a popup menu saying:
Print Book Numbers Help
If I select "Numbers Help", it opens a normal print dialogue for Numbers Help document and I can print it as PDF file by selecting "Save as PDF…" menu item in "PDF" drop down menu at the bottom left corner of the dialogue. The resulting PDF file looks fine except that it has no indices (bookmarks).
I don't know why you cannot access the url by your iMac. Perhaps your iMac and iPad are organisation's properties and behind its firewall? If that is the case and they are only allowed to have restricted internet/intranet access, I'm afraid that the above method won't work for you.
