    In short, no. The download link is generated outside the viewer area (above or below) and isn't a button on the toolbar itself, though this may be added in a future version. There is an experimental feature that allows you to show the print button on full screen view, but not in embedded view. I would not consider this very stable, however. It's not really possible to print a PDF directly from the web, anyway - at best you could force it to download and open and trigger the print window, but that's both unintuitive and assumes the person has PDF software - maybe a safe assumption most of the time but the plugin is intended to be used by anyone without need of extra software or browser plugins.

    Hope this helps.

    thanks for the response, another question - is it possible to control it so, that pdf doesn't load automatically itself on page load?
    I mean, if the pdf is big or there are manu pdf documents in one page - I would like to choose, which document to open by clicking on it etc.

    If the document is larger than the "max file size" setting, the viewer won't load but the download link will still appear (unless it's turned off). There is no way to override this individually so to make it appear in this case you'd have to change the setting.

    Otherwise there is no "click to load" sort of function at the moment, but it's on the list for a future version. The plugin does handle multiple documents per page fairly well - see the "preview" pages on the GDE web site.
