downloading pdf

I cannot seem to find an icon to allow me to save a pdf (or any file) after opening in an email. I amnot using a bridge...just the WAP in my office. Also when I go to permissions the adobe reader doesn't even show up so I can allow it access...anyone have any ideas on how to save files from my email?

Re: downloading pdf

Try pressing and holding the PDF icon.  There should be a new menu showing "Open" or "Save As".

Re: downloading pdf

when I do that all I get is the adobe info...no option to save. I swipe down from the top of the screen and only get the adobe icon and file info.

Do this from inside the Messages app, not Reader.

Re: downloading pdf

I just tested it.

Tap and hold the document name marker, either before or after download, then tap "save as"

Next screen will allow you to change the name.
