    Sanchi, thanks for the reply.

    Several things happen when working with pdf files in OneDrive/SharePoint.

    In the online interface we can chose to:

    1. "preview" in the built in OneDrive/SharePoint file viewer
    2, Open in Browser (opens in the browser's viewer, usually Edge (chromium) or Chrome, or
    3. If we have acrobat cloud we can open in the cloud and do at lease some editing and arranging.

    Each of the above works for certain things. Opening in acrobat clouds is fine for small things, but doesn't work well when working with large files or when we want to do more detailed markups, or add signatures, etc.

    Quite often we need to combine, bookmark, or sign, larger reports that are too large to work with in the acrobat cloud interface. Instead, we need to add the library and open from the Desktop App (a reasonably simple but still somewhat clunky process) or sync the SharePoint library or folder locally. Either option requires a bunch of extra time/steps and each has some advantages and disadvantages.

    When we open an MS Office Document from the online interface we can preview, open on the web, or open in the desktop app. Giving the option to right click on a PDF in SharePoint and being able to open and edit the PDF in the desktop app similar to the process for M365 apps and have it save changes back to SharePoint with version history would be a really useful feature and would eliminate the need to add or sync so many libraries.
