Launching the Software The Reader software will either launch automatically and display the document, or you will get a dialog box asking which software you want to use to open the document. If you get a dialog box, you will need to browse to locate the software on your system.
Searching Within a PDF File Once a document has been downloaded, use the search function (the binocular icon on your tool bar) to find specific phrases or words within the file.
Printing a PDF File Because these files are in PDF format, the pages will print as you see them. If you only want to print one or a few pages of a document, be sure to specify in the print dialog box the page range you would like to print; check the lower left corner of the Reader screen for page numbers.
