SAP PDF preview with external viewer

Post by mwiese » Thu Apr 17, 2014 5:38 am

Hi,

if I open a billing document in SAP and goto pront preview, the document is opened embedded in SAP GUI.
Is it possioble to open these previews in Adobe PDF viewer? My colleague can open the preview with an external viewer, I can't. What's the difference? What do I have to change to open the billing document PDF preview with an external viewer?

Thanks and best regards
Marco

The SAPGUI is simply running your browser in a container. So if you set Adobe Reader to not "Display PDF in browser" in the preferences, it should do what you wish.

Good luck!
