3066366 - Inplace / outplace display of PDF with Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based)


SAPScript / SmartForm spools are displayed as PDF in SAP GUI.

Until now the PDF files were displayed inplace our outplace. (Which means: the PDF was displayed either inside the SAP GUI, or a separate window has been opened for the PDF.)

However, after a technological change in SAP GUI to use WebView2 / Microsoft Edge (Chromium)-related mechanisms, the behaviour of the PDF display has changed.
