I'm trying to read a PDF online, but it is very hard to do.
PDFs are designed to be printed out and read, but if you prefer to read them online, you may find it easier if you increase the view size to 125%.
I'm having trouble printing PDFs using Adobe Acrobat. What can I do?
You must be using at least version 4.0 of the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.
Try printing one page at a time.
Try printing with the'Print as Image' option selected.
Try printing to a newer printer.
Try saving the file to disk before printing rather than opening it "on the fly." This requires that you configure your browser to "Save" rather than "Launch Application" for the file type "application/pdf," and can usually be done in the "Helper Applications" options.
Make sure you are using the latest version of Adobe's Acrobat Reader.
If the PDF file is taking more than 15 minutes to download, you might need to check your internet connection or go back to start and try again.
Can I use the Adobe Acrobat Reader Plugin?
The Windows 3.x, Windows 95, and Windows NT versions of the Acrobat Reader Plugin seem to be reliable; however we don't recommend using the Macintosh version. Use the Acrobat Reader application instead.
Why can't I just check a box next to all the papers I want PDFs for and download them all at once?
Unfortunately, there's no way to implement a feature like this; Web browsers currently do not support automated simultaneous downloads.
When I try to print PDFs, I get an error saying Acrobat Reader can't write to the file (i.e., the printer), that the disk is full.
It's possible that your printer doesn't have enough installed memory to handle an entire PDF, especially one that contains a lot of images. Try printing the file to a printer with more memory, or, alternatively, print the PDF one page at a time.
After downloading, I can't open the PDF file with Acrobat Reader. I get a message:'There was an error opening this document. Could not repair file.'
It's probable that the file was incompletely downloaded, or corrupted during the network transfer. Your best bet is to try a fresh download of the file. If that doesn't work, please send us feedback and we'll investigate.
I'm having problems downloading PDF files. My browser downloads about 20% of the file and then stops. Any suggestions?
This problem is frequently caused by unusually high network traffic, and the best solution is to try downloading the files at a time when transatlantic network traffic is lighter -- generally when the east coast of the US is not at work.
