Managing Your PDF eBooks with Multiple Devices
- Ensure you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader app installed (see below).
- Click the download link for the PDF.
- When it opens in your browser, tap the screen.
- In the menu that appears near the top of the screen, tap “Open in…”
- Tap “Copy to Adobe Acrobat.”
- When it opens in the Adobe app, if you’d like to have access to it on multiple devices, tap the square with the up arrow near the bottom of the screen and choose “Save to Document Cloud.”
These steps are specific to iPhone/iPad but should be similar for other types of mobile devices. On Android, you would tap the 3 dots on the top right of the screen to open the PDF in the Adobe app.

- Always remember to open the version of the file that’s saved in Document Cloud. You can easily identify which version this is in your recent documents list because it will have a cloud icon next to it. (The device you originally download your PDF to will also have a separate local copy.) Your changes will only be synchronized when you open and edit the version stored in Document Cloud.
- As it can add unnecessary confusion, for most people we recommend that you leave the “Mobile Link” option disabled, and only save the files to the cloud that you need access to from multiple devices.
