Alter contents of a document when its opened from document library


  • Hello,

    I'm curious what my options are for changing the contents of a document on the server side (mostly PDF's in this case) dynamically when its opened by a user. These documents contain the company's logo and contact information when stored in the library; what I've been asked to do is change these branding components "on-the-fly" when a user from a partner firm opens them without the changes being saved back to the library.

    Being that the actual documents are in PDF format, I'm not expecting suggestions on how to actually make changes to a PDF file but more generically how I would go about doing this at the point that the document is accessed by a user.

    I assume this has been done before but I've spent a lot of time searching and haven't found anything relevant. 

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
