Environment

Filr 4.2

Situation

When opening .PDF files with forms in the web client preview, some elements, such as form values or field names are displayed either incorrectly or not at all.

Resolution

As a workaround let PDF rendering being done at browser side:
  1. Open  `/opt/novell/filr/apache-tomcat/webapps/ssf/WEB-INF/classes/config/ssf.properties` and remove '.pdf' extension from `view.as.html.file.keyview.extensions` flag
  2. Save the file and restart Filr service.
