How to use PDF files

Tips for viewing, printing and saving the documents

All documents on this web site are PDF (Portable Document Format) files. They can be viewed and printed using any program that can open and print PDF files. We suggest using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to view, print and save the documents.

Tips for using Adobe Acrobat Reader

  • To view the PDF version of a document, click on the name of the document (this is a link) you want to retrieve. If Adobe Reader is present on your hard disk and if your browser is configured to open PDF files in Acrobat, you will retrieve the document you chose. Select [Print] under Adobe Acrobat Reader’s [File] menu to print it.
  • PDF files are large and retrieving them may take some time. The speed depends primarily on the speed of your network connection, the volume of Internet traffic, and the speed of your own computer. You must display the PDF version of the document in Adobe Reader before it can be printed.
  • Because PDF files are large, you should close any open PDF documents before opening a new one to avoid memory limitations.
  • Having trouble printing a PDF? Consider the following tips:
    - You must be using at least version 5 of the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
    - Try printing one page at a time.
    - Save the file to disk before printing. (See next tip.)
  • If you use a new version of Adobe Acrobat Reader you can save the file to your disk from the File menu.
    Otherwise you can do the following: Point to the document link of your choice.
    PC users: Right-click on the link and choose the option that says “Save Target As...” (Internet Explorer) or “Save Link As...” (Firefox).
    Mac users should hold the mouse button down on the link to get these same options.
