Suggestions for Using Acrobat Reader
- With Acrobat Reader, you may "turn" pages of any PDF document using the arrow buttons, magnify or decrease the size of the type by using the magnifying glass, search for key words in the document by using the binocular button or print the document with the printer button.
- The major function of the Adobe Acrobat Reader is to allow you to print your own copies of PDF documents. Using the print command from the menu bar, or the button with the printer icon, will bring up the print menu on your computer screen. Here you can make a number of selections, such as number of pages or which pages to print.
- Even if your browser has the Adobe Acrobat plug-in, you may find that printing is easier from the free download version of Acrobat Reader (see link above). Also, printing of PDF files may be slow, compared with other files.
- You may select the option "Shrink to Fit" in the print window. This makes sure that no part of the document will be cut-off in hard-copy form. This will allow you to make a master copy which you can then use to duplicate. For the best results, print from the Adobe Acrobat Reader and not your Internet browser
- Sometimes the Acrobat browser plug-in can be corrupted, especially if you install a new version of Microsoft Internet Explorer browser after installing the Acrobat Reader. You may have to reinstall the Acrobat Reader or download the latest version and reinstall it. If you do not want to reinstall Adobe Acrobat Reader, simply open the Reader program before you attempt to open a PDF file. This should allow you to see the PDF file in your browser. You may also download the PDF to your computer and then open it from your Acrobat Reader.
NOTE: We are working to make more PDFs accessible each day. If you find a PDF file that is not accessible and would like to have it converted to a more accessible version, please send a note to email@example.com along with the web address of the file you want converted. We will get it back to you as quickly as possible.
