Viewing PDF Documents

PDFs are rendered on the server side as PNGs, which are then streamed to the Infinity Process Platform Portal for display in the PDF viewer. This allows incremental document loading, reducing time to view the first page and eliminates the need to have Acrobat available on client machines.

Configuring the default Zoom Factor

You can configure the default zoom factor for PDF images in the Document viewer in the Portal Configuration Panel. Open the Configuration Panel and select the Document Viewer entry. The section PFD Display Settings provides a drop-down list, where you can select the default zoom factor.
