    Is there a way to upload a pdf straight from a desktop to a group or user profile? So it can be viewed almost as if it were a jpeg?

    I'm wanting to be able to save a .pdf to my desktop, then upload it so it is viewable somehow- without having to have admin access.

    Users should be able to upload pdfs as attachments to Docs without any problem. No admin access needed.

    However, Docs is not set up (for a number of technical reasons) to display content inline, like you might expect when embedding a jpg in a blog post. Moreover, it's not really possible to display a pdf inline without using an iframe or some other software.
