How To Enable Chrome’s New Redesigned PDF Reader
The latest version of the Google Chrome browser, v87, released earlier this month, contains a new redesigned PDF reader.

New features that come with the redesigned PDF reader include support for page thumbnail previews, support for document outlines (table of contents), a document zoom view controller, a “Fit to page” button, and support to rotate documents.

The new additions effectively bring Chrome’s built-in PDF viewer — known as PDFium — on feature-parity with Firefox’s PDF viewer (PDF.Js), considered the gold standard for web-based PDF reader apps.

While there are plans to roll out the new redesigned PDF reader to all Chrome users in the future, users can also enable it themselves and take advantage of all its new features right now.

To do so, users must access the Chrome flags page and set the following flag to “Enabled.”

Once enabled, the new features will begin showing up when viewing any PDF file without any other user action.

But Google is not the only browser maker working on revamping its PDF reader component. Microsoft has also been working on a long list of requested features, with some, such as table of contents, digital signatures, and smooth scrolling, already making it in the stable release.

Chromebook PDF Annotation Will Soon Be Possible In The New Media App
Not long ago — just the last version update, actually — Chrome OS got a fresh, new media app. This new app is capable of handling just about any media you throw its way and is also a system web app. While you still can’t simply open up this app on its own or set it as the default for opening things like videos or music (even though it handles both just fine), the new media app is fully capable of viewing and simple edits on photos, watching videos, listening to local music, and from the looks of it, some PDF viewing/editing in the near future.

As it stands right now, PDFs are in an odd in-between state: not fully a document and not fully a media item. Most times they are both, so it’s always a bit unclear what we should do with them. Currently, Chrome OS defaults to opening these types of files in a new Chrome tab where there’s a very nice PDF viewer with some basic annotation tools baked right in. It’s a solid solution, especially when a simple download and edit of a PDF is needed quickly.

Opening up a saved PDF later, however, feels a tad bit strange on a Chromebook when it defaults to opening up a new browser window. It’s no less functional, mind you, but as we move to seeing more media files open and get handled in the new media app, it would make a bit more sense for PDFs to follow suit and open themselves in the same media app, right?

According to a commit that was just merged a few days ago, the Chrome OS team is hard at work on a new capability for the media app on Chromebooks that will not only open PDFs in the new app, but also port over the existing annotation functionality as well. It’s been some time since Chrome added PDF annotation to its native PDF viewer, and now it seems the time has come to move that functionality over to the core parts of Chrome OS, too.

CrOS Media App: Put PDFs loading ink behind a flag.

This defaults to false. The Media App should only load PDFs once the Chromium PDF viewer is migrated to use its ink resources (crbug/1150244) so we don’t build 2 copies of ink in a single CROS build.

Currently in M88 & TOT builds the Media App will try to load ink.Js which fails. This overrides that functionality by overriding our internal bundled “pdfInInk” flag.

via the Chromium Gerrit
While this flag looks to only be a stop-gap while the Chrome OS team gets the PDF viewer up and running in the new media app, it is very telling of the direction that we’re headed. Currently, the Chrome OS media app can see and attempt to open a PDF, but it fails. From the looks of this commit, we’re waiting on the ‘ink’ resources to get migrated (this is what allows for annotatoin with a stylus for PDFs opened in a Chrome tab) before we see full PDF support for the media app, but it is coming for sure. With these files feeling a bit more like a media element than a document, I think this is the right move for Chrome OS. Hopefully soon we’ll get the option to simply set the main media app as the default to open all sorts of files so that end users get used to seeing the same app open when they select a photo, video, audio, or design file.

Seriously, good for you.

In study after study, from here to Tel Aviv, researchers have found that saying those two, single-syllable words can yield big rewards in our spiritual and physical health.

In one project, participants were put into two groups, with one group asked to write about things they were grateful for and the other asked to keep track of the irritations they encountered. After 10 weeks, the folks in the first group were not only more optimistic but actually had fewer visits to their doctors.

Another study found partners who expressed their thanks to each other had healthier relationships.

And a UCSD study of patients with asymptomatic heart failure found that those who had higher gratitude scores, using a six-item scale, were associated with better sleep, more energy and even lower levels of inflammation, which can worsen heart failure.

Part of the upside can be explained this way: Saying and hearing thank you causes the brain to release feel-good neurotransmitters responsible for our emotions.

But here’s the curious part: a national survey funded some years back by the John Templeton Foundation found that while most of us know how important gratitude is, we do a lousy job of actually thanking people. As the findings put it, “A significant gratitude gap exists in America.”

So on this Sunday before a federal holiday dedicated to giving thanks, let’s look at closing that gap.

Inspiring good deeds

The Rev. Reginald Gary doesn’t have to be convinced. Gary, who has been senior pastor of New Creation Church of San Diego for 25 years, believes this painless phrase is “vitally important” to our mental stability and to doing good in the world.

“I think one of the reasons we have so much anger and grief in the world is that people don’t feel appreciated, affirmed and celebrated — and the two simple words ‘thank you’ does so much more than you can ever know,” he says.

Gary thinks saying it and hearing it motivates us to do keep doing good deeds. “It’s one of the best things you can hear.”

So why don’t we express it more often?

“I think some people have different levels of gratitude,” Gary tells me. “They think what you’ve done for them is something you’re obligated to do for them.” He’s seen it first-hand. “There have been times in my life and ministry that I’ve done things for people and they have just taken it and gone, with never a words of thanks.”

In the Templeton survey on gratitude, nearly two-thirds of the respondents said it was “very important” for their spiritual and religious leaders to teach thankfulness. I asked Gary if he does that.

“I think you lead by example,” he says. “I think that clergy should be very, very quick (to say thank you). It should be an instantaneous response to an act or a word or a deed done either to them or to their family or to the church.”

He advocates teaching children to say it just as soon as they are able to talk. He remembers feeding his now-grown children when they were in high chairs. When they were done eating, he’d remind them to say thank you to he or his wife. “So now it’s just automatic.”

Like many people who pray, Gary expresses gratitude to God every day. But he says “thank you” for both what he has and what he’s been spared.

As he puts it: “The key is to be thankful for all the things that make you smile but also be thankful that you don’t have a lot of things that make you frown.”

Praying it forward

When the Rev. Steve and Abigail Albert pray, they express gratitude for what they have now — and what they are affirming for the future.

“When I start my prayers, I say, ‘Thank you God for our perfect health now,’ knowing in fact it may not have happened just yet but I’m thanking in advance knowing even more good is coming,” says Steve Albert.

“When we thank first without seeing the results, we are activating our faith and believe in heart and mind without doubt,” Abigail Albert says.

The Poway couple, who are both 73, are New Thought ministers, a spiritual and philosophical movement that believes God moves through all things and embraces the metaphysical power of positive thinking. They quote the late Ernest Holmes, a New Thought leader and writer: “Change your thinking; change your life.”

The Alberts also are very active in interfaith efforts — she is executive director of the Poway Interfaith Team and he is director of the World Interfaith Network, which liaisons with interfaith groups internationally.

Gratitude, they say, creates a positive energy. And telling someone thank you is important both for the person saying it and the person receiving it.

“Whatever you put out comes back to you,” says Abigail Albert. “If you’re in gratitude, there’s going to be something good coming back and you’re going to say thank you some more.” In New Thought, this is called the Law of Circulation, she says. Others may know it as karma.

The Alberts agree with the findings of the gratitude studies. “People who are happier are healthier,” Steve Albert tells me. “People who are fearful or anxious feel it in the body and may be more prone to attract sickness to them. And I choose to be healthy.”

He had a stroke in 2003 and once he recovered, he began visiting stroke victims as a volunteer at Palomar Medical Center. He relishes moments when he hears something like this: “‘Steve, thank you for walking into my room and making me believe that I’m not going to die.’ That alone is wow.”

An ancient problem

The “gratitude gap” revealed by the national survey may not be such a new revelation.

Consider the biblical story of Jesus healing 10 lepers. Guess how many of them returned to say thank you?

One.

That’s all.

Just one out of the 10.

Jesus’ stories are like Russian nesting dolls, with lessons packed one after the other. But expressing gratitude is surely one of the lessons in this one.

And now we have science, in addition to spirituality, to convince us of the benefits of returning to say thank you.

“If you know anything at all about the science of happiness, you know that gratitude is great for our wellbeing,” writes columnist Jessica Stillman in Inc. Magazine. “It rewires your brain for positivity, boosts your energy levels and if your thankfulness is directed at someone else, makes the receiving party feel great.”

So go double-check your grocery list for Thursday’s dinner and think about how you can close this gap. And don’t forget the cranberry sauce.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot something, too. Thank you for reading this column.
