About Cloud connectors

Power PDF supports Cloud storage of PDF and other files, which can be accessed from multiple devices (mainframes, laptops, phones, tablets, and more) and similarly uploaded. File contents are synchronized for all devices.

Although Dropbox is not directly supported in Power PDF, if the official Dropbox client is installed, then Dropbox displays in the File > Open menu, and its shared folder is also available in the user's folder (C:\Users\<username>\Dropbox by default).

Currently, the Evernote and OneDrive cloud connectors are supported and provided with the installation package.

  • In Power PDF Standard, the Evernote and OneDrive connectors are installed automatically.

  • In Power PDF Advanced, no connectors are installed automatically, and you must run a Custom installation to enable the connectors you need. Microsoft SharePoint is also available, along with all supported Document Management Systems that already have an installed component on your computer.

Cloud sites and Document Management Systems are accessed via the Connectors tab; each connector or DMS has its own group. These storage sites require registration and provision of user ID and a password for each operation. Available actions:

  • Open icon Open file from storage.

  • Save icon Save file to storage.

To insert pages from storage, select Home > Pages > Insert, click Open from DMS and select the desired site.

Each site requires a login, but can then be accessed freely until Power PDF is closed.

You can temporarily disable and re-enable installed Connectors from File > Options > Connectors > General.

In Convert Assistant, files can be opened from storage sites via the File menu; converted files can be saved to these sites from the DMS list box in the Output Format panel.

In PDF Create Assistant, files can be opened by clicking the Add button and selecting Add from DMS; created PDF files can be saved to Cloud sites by clicking the Saving button, selecting Save to DMS and selecting the desired Connector or DMS.
