Convert to PDF in Desktop and Mobile client

Several customers (educational and local government) suggested they would like to have a 'Convert to PDF' option on document. This way the document can be converted to a PDF and be annotated with another solution (planning for Filr 2.1?) or shared as a PDF.
There is also an advantage for this versus the HTML preview option, cause a PDF has the page numbers in the document while a HTML preview using the document converters shows a readable preview of the document without pages (or page numbers).

Technically the PDF conversions service should run on the Filr Appliance. I think the PDF's should be saved in the VA shared area. Once a document has a PDF equivalent it would be nice if it gets updated automatically case the parent document is updated.

It would be nice to at least have it do the conversion once for download if not kept and updated per the second paragraph.

Hi Shane, I agree with that.

Convert to PDF could be relative easy implemented leveraging the upcoming Online Editing integration. Also see the possibility here for Annotation https://www1.v1ideas.com/MFI/novell-filr/Idea/Detail/1669
