    Hi, I bought my first ipad on sunday and I'm trying to view PDF on my elearning platform (moodle) from my university but for some reason I can't scroll the Pdf's, so I'm stuck at the first page. Is there a way to download them to iBooks? The pdf is inside a frame. i can post a picture later.


    Thank you

    try the 2 finger swipe. place 2 fingers together and swipe upwards. I've had this occasionally happen to me browsing some websites and the 2 finger method tends to work about 80% of the time for me.

    Try copying the link.

    This happens to me too on my schools system. We have links to click to get to the pdf and if I just tap it, I cannot scroll, but if I touch and hold until it gives me the option to copy the link, when I copy and paste the link into the address bar it opens in a new tab with a black bar up top that gives me the option to open in iBooks.

    thanks for the tip but it didn't work, I hold until the copy option shows up but when I paste the link to the safari bar it just opens normally :( I really need this to work so if someone can help me I'd appreciate it

    I just found an app called downloads for iPad lite that can download the pdfs :) but it only stores to 7 files so i guess i've to buy the complete version. Anyone knows a similar app that's free?
