was not working, but not the plugins fault

works as it says. a recent wordpress update (or something) had changed urls, but i see this as a wordpress issue and not something this plugin was doing. this plugin works, but has not been updated for close to a year. i have no current problems with it.

if you have any problems, try checking your url string to make sure it’s readable and that any symbols haven’t been tweaked.

Works very well in 4.6.1.

I have a few users who have a problem with their anti virus (Bull Guard) blocking this plug in. However, I have tested it successfully with IE, Chrome and Mozilla.

Aun funcionando

aun funciona correctamente para chrome 47.0.2 y firefox 42
agregando a presentation_mode.js

document.onselectstart = function() {return false;}
document.onmousedown = function() {return false;}
document.oncontextmenu = function(){return false}

podremos agregar un poco de protección al pdf
