Reading local and web pdf in Opera Reader

  • I love opera reader. With visual issues, being able to enlarge text and have it reflow is so good! But when I find a PDF in Opera Android, it downloads it and lists the apps to open it in, and Opera is not one of them. So I have two related questions:

    1. Can Opera open PDFs in reader instead of downloading them?

    2. Can Opera open local files, from local Android storage? I tried typing in the path as best I could figure it out for a local PDF, but it didnt work. It just brought up artivles about files.

  • @spthomas What is Opera Reader?

    I don't think so.

  • @leocg Opera mobile version has reader mode. It allows you to enlarge almost any text on a web page. When you do, it word wraps to the screen. So you don't have to scroll back and forth to read in enlarged mode. It's a really cool feature, and Opera is the only broswer that has it that I can find. I was hoping I could read PDFs from the hard drive with Opera since it's reader mode is better than Adobe reader.
