    I placed a couple of PDFs I wanted to read on a flight recently on to my Skydrive.

    I then opened them in the PDF viewer with the understanding that they would then be saved locally to the device.

    The problem though was when I got in the air and didn't have any connectivity the PDF would not load any of the additional pages.

    So my question is, how do I store a PDF or any other document locally on the device so I can access it when I am off the grid? I don't really see a folder for general files or another storage area that is easily accessible to the user.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    open PDF Reader by Microsoft. see if your documents are in there
    if you have opened them using the app before they should be in history

    Microsoft need to add a file manager to the OS, that way you can manage and manipulate files locally on your phone.

    I've not tried that yet but will do it and see if it works.

    That's what I did before. But if you're in an airplane without connectivity it'll only load a couple of pages. Once it's past that point it tries to load the rest of the file from the network and ends up showing you blank pages instead.

    I didn't know that. Where will you then find it on your phone once it's loaded there?

    True but that doesn't help as I mentioned above because without a network connection it shows it exists but in reality is not completely saved locally.

    What he meant is to copy locally. PDF reader doesn't download the entire PDF file from SkyDrive. It only downloads enough for current page. Cache entire PDF file is not a good way for go (for reading stuff over SkyDrive).

    It saves it locally on my phone. I just tried it to confirm by turning on airplane mode, and I can open all of the PDF files I have on the phone.

    1) Open PDF reader
    2) select file
    3) file opens just fine

    Some PDF files are created to be downloaded bit by bit over the web, and some all in one go. When you are making your PDF file you need to make the right choices. You may find that scrolling through the whole PDF over WiFi will cache the whole web view style PDF?

    Use UCBrowser or GetThemAll. They should download entire PDF and store them locally.

    Copy paste your pdf file in your phone in documents folder. Open it through office hub.

    If you want to use SDcard, copy it anywhere except music folders and use Kirik SD viewer free version which can read .pdf files. And you can open your pdf files on SDcard from there. I suggest you to use Adobe Reader.
