Showing PDF in HTML using BuildVu

43 sec read

Showing PDF in HTML is really easy if you can convert the PDF file into HTML.  It means no longer having to download files onto your Computer and use other software. And you also get the benefit of being able to search the text in the PDF file directly from your web browser.

But how do I change the PDF to HTML?

This is why we have created BuildVu! This software converts any PDF file into high-quality, standalone HTML content. If you only have 1-2 files, you can use the free online converter. For Bulk conversion you can purchase a license to run the software on the Cloud or your own Computers.

Once you have the PDF files as HTML, you will need to host them on your website with the rest of your HTML files.

How can I show to my converted HTML page?

A really popular way to add the display is using a feature called a LightBox, where the PDF is shown inside a popup box with the rest of the page partly hidden.
