    Thanks, It actually worked a bit nicer than just using google doc viewer alone. I couldn't get the some of the features on top to show up (zoom etc.)but they show up fine with the dirty suds embed. I do have one issue and it may be my theme. In Pages I can switch to a one column page and embed work nicely. However, when I am in the Post content area I have sidebars columns on both sides and my content area is in the middle column. When I add my pdf embed into my content area - part of the pdf hangs over the right sidebar. Is there anyway to adjust or resize?

    If you want to change the default size of media embedded in a post, that can be done in the admin interface under Settings⇒Media Settings⇒Embeds

    If you'd just like to change the size of one instance, you can use the standard attributes of the WordPress embed shortcode.

    Thanks the shortcode width info, it did the trick. I tried something like that early and couldn't seem to get it to work. I guess I must have been adding the width/height after the shortcode.

    I liked this plugin before but now now I really like like it. It is so easy to use. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I've added this info to the FAQ, so hopefully others will be able to make use of this as well.
