Install requirements

Async Integration

It it highly recommended to install and configure in combination with this package. Doing so will manage all pdf conversions processes asynchronously so the user isn’t delayed so much when saving files.


The product can be configured via a control panel item Document Viewer Settings.

Some interesting configuration options:

Storage Type

If you want to be able to serve you files via amazon cloud, this will allow you to store the data in flat files that can be synced to another server.

Storage Location

Where are the server to store the files.


Use tesseract to scan the document for text. This process ca be slow so if your pdfs do not need to be OCR’d, you may disable.

Auto Select Layout

For pdf files added to the site, automatically select the document viewer display.

Auto Convert

When pdf files are added and modified, automatically convert.


  • add text back to pdf(necessary?) - slow…

  • remove images after file is deleted for plain file storage

  • take hash of file to compare if it’s already converted
