Using Acrobat Reader:

Online usage instructions are available:

From the Acrobat Reader program:

From the 'Help' Menu, select Reader Guide.

Changing the Acrobat Reader Language:

The English & French versions of Acrobat Reader software provided on this CD-ROM are identical. You may change the application's language between English & French by doing the following:

From the Acrobat Reader program:

From the 'File' Menu, select Preferences and then General;

Under the 'Display' section, select English (or Français) as the 'Current language'.

Loading or Printing Acrobat Files:

Adobe Acrobat Reader software is designed to work within the Netscape browser. This means when you open a document with the file extension (.pdf), the computer will turn on the Acrobat Reader software, but display the file within the Netscape browser.

If you are having problems getting files to load or files to print, please follow the instructions below.

From Windows Explorer, go to the following directory

C:--> Program Files-->Netscape-->Communicator-->Program-->Plugins

Delete the file 'nppdf32.dll' using the right mouse button or move the file outside the 'Plugins' directory.

Now when you try to open a file in Netscape, the file will actually open up inside the Acrobat Reader Program instead. This should alleviate any downloading or printing problems in the future.
