Can't open PDF email attachments from mail app. iOS7 iPad 2 Reply Topic

Since upgrading to iOS7 I cannot open PDF email attachments from the "Mail" app. The attachment appears as a "tap to download" icon, after downloading it appears as an image of the first page of the PDF. An extended press of the PDF image results in "save image" and "copy" options, but no "open in" option.

I have tried closing and re-opening mail, restarting the iPad, several different attachments. Still no "Open in" option.

Any help with this?

I use "PDF-notes" this works very well.

Am I trolling? No I'm not.

 

In iBooks the edit PDF function is not there, I open the same file in the PDF program I use and I can edit it no problem.

 

If you have issues with people helping others out then leave. People need to edit a PDF, this is a option if they choose to use it.

Well... I solved it.

Not sure how, though.

I downloaded ADOBE READER for free and paid 3.99 for another app called TOP.  Not sure which one did the trick, but it is working now, and I am opening and storing my PDFs just like before

I have tried downloading adobe, downloaded two pdf files including the top one suggested and still no luck.

 

Help!  I can work around with phone to drop box but terribly inconvenient.  Some in my company have no issues, some do?
