Directly import PDFs into your blog post

Posted by Jake Lumetta on April 25, 2016

Butter has a lot of advanced functionality including our integration with Iframely which means you can simply copy and paste a url from over 1700 different websites and content from that site is magically embedded. Similarly, we've tapped into Filestack to power our easy to use image uploader. Despite these integrations, there wasn't an easy way to upload PDF's from your computer into your blog post. That changes today.

Announcing PDF Import + Instant preview


We've added an Upload PDF menu option to the in-post media toolbar:


Clicking it brings up the same familiar file upload dialog that appears when uploading an image. Upload your PDF and you'll see an instant preview of the first page get generated and inserted into your post.  


This preview is the same as any other image which means you can also resize it using our drag and drop editor. By default the image is full-size so if you'd like a thumbnail simply resize it.

Let us know your thoughts + questions in the comments below! We've got some killer features in the pipeline based on your input so keep it coming!

Make sure you receive the freshest Butter product updates.
