    PalmPDF worked with my Treo 650, despite some minor glitches. However, PalmPDF doesn't seem to work at all with my 700p. The PDF file simply doesn't show up at all. Any ideas from anyone?

    Thanks, Casey

    It does. There's no need for PalmPDF on the 700p.

    Oh yes!! You guys are so right! Hot d@mn, DocsToGo now has native PDF conversion! I tried one example, and it worked perfectly! It's about time!

    Man, it's hard to keep up with all these changes on the 700p! Now I can delete PalmPDF which takes up almost 2MB of space!

    Thanks guys!

    However, you can't do a search with the PDF app in Docs To Go, and I have a PDF file that is a member directory, and the only easy way to use it is to search.

    Is there a way to search a PDF in DocsToGo that I'm overlooking?

    I actually prefer the PalmPDF implementation greatly over the one from DocsToGo. It really doesn't take up much space when the engine is on the card either....

    The problem with palm pdf is that you have to convert it on a pc before you can view it on your device. This can be a problem if for example some body sends you a pdf attachment and you want to open it straight from your treo. I dont use pdf's so ive never really needed to just view a single pdf so palm pdf was always useless to me.

    Actually, that's not right. Part of the beauty of palmPDF was that you didn't have to convert anything. It opens right up, including email attachments.

    wait are we talking about the same program? i was refering to the pdf reader available straight from adobe. That was the only palm pdf viewer i was aware off (besides the one included in docs to go)

    Reader blows. Docs2Go is marginal. PalmPDF is first class freeware.

    I add to that by saying that Piscel Proviewer is probably the best native pdf reader out ther for Palmos followed by PalmPDF then DTG etc...

    Proviewer is the fastest and slickest while palmPDF is free. DTG implementation of PDF support is weak imo...
