    Hey Kyle,

     

    Darius is correct, Rise Player doesn't have a built in way to display PDF. The tools he recommends to convert PDF to Image, then display using the Image Widget are the most intuitive ways to get this done. You could also take a screenshot of the PDF and save it to an image file, but that's less graceful than Darius' recommendations :)

    Open PDF in Adobe Acrobat and save it as Image. Takes 10s. From here is just like any other image.

    Mary, it is just not worth the hassle to try to do something else.

    There's no option to export to a graphic in the free version of Adobe (at least not the Mac). See attached.

    Yes, Adobe Reader cannot do that, but Acrobat can. Look up free PDF converters. Also If you have Photoshop, then you can do the same, even better because you get more options with 'export for web.'
