    Why is it still not possible to save a .pdf file to skydrive or the phone from WP8? This is ludicrous! At least we need the option to send .pdf files from the MS .pdf reader. Anyone know more about this crazy situation?

    So you can't save a PDF file on WP8?!

    I wish some users who own WP8 devices would actually help answer some of these questions. I know there are a few on this forum who have WP8 devices.

    I've just opened a PDF email attachment in the Microsoft PDF app. I can't find any options to upload to SkyDrive

    The PocketLint review showed that if you tap and hold on a PDF in the Office hub, then you have the options to send it.

    Edit: As it turns out, I meant PocketNow.

    How about an option to download or save to device?

    Am I not getting something here or what are you guys talking about? I can download and save pdf files just fine on my 800. So it definitely should be possible on the WP8 phones.
    I don't know about uploading to skydrive though. I'll check that later today when my 920 arrives.

    The new Microsoft Reader app (i.e. the port of the W8 version) does not have any options to save to device, or to upload to skydrive. It's very basic.

    If you upload a PDF to Skydrive from your computer, it will show up in the Office hub as available to download, but your only option is to re-save it to Skydrive, not your phone. Also, it opens with the above-mentioned Reader app.

    (And no, a PDF opened from web or email does not appear in the Office hub.)

    Really? So they did a backward step in this regard? Pdf files that were opened on a wp7 device would be automatically saved to the office hub.
    Very stupid move.
    Is the adobe reader available for wp8?

    Yea, you are right. It's not there for my 920. PDF's still get saved on the phone but one can only find them in the PDF reader and not in the office hub anymore.
    Dissapointing...

    Yeah... MS better update their .pdf app... Not a big deal.

    I've never seen a PDF in my WP7 Office hub. Where do they show up?

    A feature I've always been praying for and expecting ( attach files docs/pdf to mail and also upload to skydrive) is still not possible with WP8. SMH, why then should I get a WP8?? Microsoft disappoints me a lot sometimes, we use our phones to work and they should be able to address these issues without us begging. They should be bringing these stuff rather than those stupid kids corner and room stuff. I use my phone to work not play. Sometimes I just feel like switching to make life simple and easier :-(

    I have a Lumia 920. I have installed the PDF reader app. It doesn't work well at all. I have only been able to get it to view one simple PDF (single page) that I created using Word on my PC. I was hoping to be able to view PDF magazines on my phone, the PDF reader won't open them. I tried taking the magazine PDF and using a PDF print driver printing it down to a simpler PDF, but it still won't open them. Transferred the files using skydrive.

    Really need a good PDF reader here.

    I have Lumia 920... and the PDF is so basic....regardless of saving it to Phone, I can not email it to anyone..unless you go to office app and choose it from your skydrive...opening a PDF file to save/email won't work.

    I don't like the MS pdf reader. As soon as I tap the bookmark button it closes the pdf file. I am not sure if the bookmark functionality is broken for everyone or only on my 920.

    MS pdf reader on the phone can't open locked files...... The bulk of the pdfs I need/want to view have a password on them. Seriously getting annoyed with MS

    IMO the lack of a decent PDF Reader or any PDF editor is a bigger thing than lacking Instagram or whatever the latest app of the moment is. Being able to open a PDF on your phone is a must for anyone who uses a phone for business, and the MS PDF Reader is NOT adequate.

    I've had vehicle shop manuals in pdf on my last 2 android phones, latest OS being 2.3. I haven't even tried loading them to SkyDrive or the L920 but assumed there would be no issue. I guess that makes an @$$ out of both me and MS.

    Some PDF's work okay with MS PDF Reader, but for something like that I would doubt it

    I'll eat my words for now, but I won't choke on them. I'm viewing my 20MB 600 page pdfs fine using MS's PDF viewer. Had to email them to access them though. Could not just do a USB file transfer from PC.

    We are moving away from file systems in case you haven't noticed that trend, it started with the use of libraries.

    I would define "we". I work IT, and I HATE, LOATHE and DESPISE when people have no idea where their data is, you can't properly manage or backup data if it is just magically associated with an application.

    I am crazy excited to get a windows phone, but if they don't fix 2 things by the time my contract is up, android it will be for me, one: fix the .wav issue
    two: I better be able to put files on my phone if I want, save files from an email on my phone, and download files to my phone. It's mine, not yours, you let me do what I want with my storage.
