    PDF upload

    2thDr
      Althought the Index.html contains a link to a *.pdf file, when I upload it via "Put" the PDF file is NOT uploaded. Please advise. Thanks.

          Upload the PDF file separately from the index file.

            I'm not sure, but Dreamweaver might not consider a PDF document a "dependant file". Just upload/put the PDF manually.

              Don't know about your version of Dreamweaver (mine is 8), but mine won't properly open a pdf file much less upload it. Any suggestions?

                What do you mean by "open" ?

                dreamweaver can't open pdf files.
                Use Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.

                Dreamweaver can upload them- find it in the Files Panel, and Put it to the
                remote site.

                  It wouldn't consider it a dependent file because it's NOT a dependent file.
                  A dependent file is any file that is necessary for the proper display of the
                  current file, like a CSS or a js file, or a background image. An external
                  file that is linked with an anchor is not a dependent file and will not be
                  uploaded. If this were not the case, then uploading a single file with
                  links to other pages would cause your entire site to be uploaded every time!

                  So, the PDF should be uploaded separately.
