Importing and Manipulating PDFs

With Mylio, you can import, view, and replicate PDFs allowing you to carry important documents with you wherever you are. This article will walk you through viewing and manipulating PDFs in Mylio.

Importing and Viewing PDFs


Mylio can import PDF documents in the same ways that it imports photos and videos. This allows you to quickly import full folders of documents using Mylio’s Copy import, External Drive import, or Source Folder import.

Once imported, Mylio will display your PDF with a small arrow icon over it. This icon means that Mylio will open your computer’s default PDF reader to view the document. The change your default PDF reader, please see this article for Windows and this article for Mac. Mylio can also extract your PDFs for reading within Mylio, more information on this can be found by selecting the “Extracting PDFs” tab in this article.

Replicating PDFs

PDFs will replicate much like photos and videos in your library. To view PDFs outside of Mylio, or to extract PDFs for viewing within Mylio, your device must be syncing the original, full resolution version of the PDF. Thumbnails or Previews of your PDF will display the first page of the PDF within Mylio and display the download icon on the image. By selecting this icon you can tell Mylio to download this specific file automatically when a device that holds the Original comes online.
