    Acrobat is able to open Sharepoint files directly, but it's not straightforward and must be improved.

    Two workarounds available today:
    1a. (slow manual method)
    Preview the pdf, then select 'open in browser'. This URL can be opened with Acrobat. Grab the URL and open the run command, type
    "acrobat.exe" then paste the URL.

    e.g. "acrobat.exe https://company.sharepoint.com/sites/path/doclib/this_is_the_filename.pdf"

    Acrobat allows you to check out the file and make edits directly.

    1b. The above can be automated, we use a powershell script on the PCs that need it. Not ideal for a large rollout though...

    2. Acrobat Reader DC can connect to Sharepoint and gives you a rudimentary file browser, doesn't work well for flat views with metadata as it just gives you a folder/file structure. Anyway, with this you can open files directly and edit.

    3 votes from me! Even just for the substring functionality.
