Open and save files to a WebDAV location

Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (or WebDAV), is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allows users to collaboratively manage documents on a remote server. This is useful for storing files in a shared folder over HTTP, or in a document management system (DMS) such as Documentum or Hummingbird, so that the files can be accessed from anywhere.

The built-in support for WebDAV in Nitro Pro enables you to open, edit, and save changes to PDF files stored in HTTP locations. You can check-in and check-out files to give others read-only access to the last saved version of files you are editing.

NOTE: If you want to save a PDF file to a web location with WebDAV, Windows network drive mapping is required.

You do not need to perform any special steps to configure Nitro Pro to work with existing WebDAV connections. However, if you need to create a new WebDAV connection, use the following procedures:

To create a WebDAV connection in Window Vista, 7 or 8:

  1. Click the Windows button (previously known as the Start Menu), and then click Computer

  2. From the toolbar, select Map network drive

  3. Click Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures

  4. In the Add Network Location Wizard window (known as theAdd Network Connection Wizard in Vista), click Next

  5. Select Choose a custom network connection and then click Next

  6. Enter the URL of the network path you wish to connect to, and then click Next

  7. If required, enter a user name and password to log on to the web share, and then click OK

  8. Type a name for your network connection, and then click Next to complete the wizard

  9. Click Finish to map the network path
