Tips for Web site use:

PDF Document Viewing

On a moderately sized screen, screen management can be an issue. There are two things you can do to manage a full screen view of the document.

1.  Use your browser back button to return to the linked page.

2. To get a document to display in an entirely new full window without the title or side menu you can:

  • On the PC: Right click on the link to the document and choose Open in a New Window from the popup menu.
  • On the Mac: Hold down on the link to the document and choose Open Link in New Window from the popup menu.

To return from a full screen view, just close the window.

3. To download an entire PDF file to your local machine so that you can view it later without being connected to the Web you can:

  • On the PC: Right click on the link to the document and choose Save Target As... from the popup menu.
  • On the Mac: Hold down on the link to the document and choose Download Link to Disk from the popup menu.

Incremental Downloading of Documents for Faster Viewing
(A Feature of Acrobat Reader 4.0-8.0)

Some of the PDF documents on this Web site are quite large and have been optimized for incremental downloading. (Incremental downloading allows the user to view  one page at a time without having to down load the entire document). Our Web site supports incremental downloading and we suggest that you upgrade to the Acrobat Reader 4.0-8.0  to take full advantage of this feature. 


Bookmarks  

Each of the larger PDF documents has bookmarks that allow easy access into the document. To view the document using bookmarks:

  • On both the PC and Mac: Select the Bookmarks and Page button from the Acrobat Reader Application Bar.

 

The bookmark window can be closed to expand screen space.  It can also be resized. This can be done by moving the cursor over the right vertical edge of the bookmark frame until the frame resizing arrows appear. Click on the resizing arrows and drag them to the left to reduce the size of the bookmark frame and to the right to expand the bookmark frame. 


Printing  

To print the content of a page you can: 

On the PC:

  1. Select the page to be printed by clicking on it and click on the Print button on the Browser Navigation Bar, or
  2. Choose Print under the file menu , or
  3. Right click on the contents of the page and choose Print from the popup menu.

On the Mac:

  1. Select the page to be printed by clicking on it and click on the Print button on the Browser Navigation Bar, or





  2. Choose Print under the file menu and choose Print in the dialog box. It will print the selected frame automatically.

If the page contains a PDF file opened with the Acrobat Reader Plug-in in your browser, use the Acrobat Reader Application Bar Print button to print the file.

With large files it sometimes helps to download the entire file, open it in Acrobat Reader, and then print it.
