Adobe Acrobat

The free Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to view, navigate, and print PDF files across all major computing platforms.

If you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your system already, follow the instructions below.

If you have Adobe Acrobat Reader on your system and need to upgrade to Adobe Acrobat 8.0, please remove
Adobe Acrobat 7.0 before you begin.

If you have problems printing a pdf file, select the "Print As Image" option in the Acrobat Viewer's print dialog box. Sometimes Adobe files have problems printing from a Web site.  If this happens, instead of trying to print directly from the site do the following:

  • Click File,
  • Save As and
  • Then save the document to some place that you can easily find it, such as your desktop.

You can then open the document by clicking on it, where it will open in the actual Adobe program rather than from inside of Internet Explorer.  You can then try to print the document from there.
