PDF and XPS display in SharePoint 2010


  • I used Page Viewer and Content Editor to display PDF and XPS pages in SharePoint 2010. However, the Menu options on the left display behind the PDF or XPS.

    I wsa able to make the Flash SWF file display behind the menu by using the parameter setting wmode=transparent by having it load into page viewr using an HTML file.

    The developers tell me there is no way you can make the XPS or PDF files display behind the menu since Page Viewer uses Active X. Which requires the highest z-index setting and it cannot be changed.

    Using XPS or PDF to display documents look much better than copying and pasting text form Word into a Content Editor.

    Any solutions?
