There are two important highlights in the recent update of Zoho Viewer

  1. Online Document Converter
  2. New PDF Viewer
1. Online Document Converter
You can now use Zoho Viewer to convert office documents to different formats. For example, you can convert a DOC file to PDF or an XLS file to CSV and so on. Upload your file, select the desired output format, convert it and save it back to your computer. No sign up needed. No installation required. Try the online document converter now at viewer.zoho.com/converter and let us know your feedback.
2. New PDF Viewer
We have a new, improved viewer for your PDF files. This new viewer will retain the original formatting of your PDF files as much as possible. Here is the list of functionality available with our new PDF viewer:
  • Retain the format of the original document
  • Page navigation controls
  • Find text within a PDF document
  • Copy selected text to your system clipboard

Barely a week after we released our new PDF viewer, a free ebook was launched on Zoho Viewer by an author. Here is the free ebook: viewer.zoho.com/docs/r1bbdh.

The new PDF viewer is not yet available in the following scenarios. 

  • Viewing a PDF file available on a public URL
  • Using the Viewer APIs to view PDF files
This will be made available in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

    BTW: when I say “upload”, I mean we invoke REST call inside Iframe src inside website page to show document in embed mode.

    Zoho Viewer have a big problem in it’s cache mechanizm.Let’s say, we upload some file with cache=true parameter.
    It shown by Zoho very good.
    But after some time, it stops showing!Example:
    https://viewer.zoho.com/api/ur…It is important for us, because we suggest to our users to use your product Zoho Viewer to show documents.
    Of course we can hack this bug, encoding date parameter into doc url, but I think it is better for you just to find the problem source and fix it.Yours,
