****  PDF Format  ****
All archived "LODESTAR" newsletters are saved in PDF format.
Most problems with viewing the PDF files occur because the Internet Browser that you are using has an issue with the  installed version of Adobe Acrobat reader . This problem can usually be resolved by re-downloading the appropriate version of the Acrobat reader for your operating system.
 
You can use the update tool built in to Adobe Reader.
The latest version is Adobe Reader "X" (includes Acrobat.com on Adobe AIR)
Windows XP SP2 - SP3, English  http://get.adobe.com/reader/



It is possible to have Adobe's Acrobat Reader read the contents of your documents for you.  You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or higher installed on your computer AND running.  You must have a speaker connected to your computer with the volume turned up and the speakers turn on. 

Following these  steps: 

  1. Open any PDF file that you want to read. 
  2. If you want Acrobat Reader to read the complete PDF file, press Ctrl + Shift + B and it will start to read the file. 
  3. If you want Acrobat Reader to read a selected page, click on the page you want to hear and press Ctrl + Shift + V. It will then read only the page you have selected. 
  4. To pause the reading, press Ctrl + Shift + C. To continue reading from a pause, press the same combination of keys again and it will start back up. 
  5. To stop the reading, press Ctrl + Shift + E
Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 and higher will only read the contents if the PDF file is in English.

Material in the SFMS Newsletter may be duplicated for non-commercial purposes with attribution unless otherwise specified.  For commercial use, the individual author(s) must be contacted for approval.
Note: Be sure to use version 5 or later to be able to copy items from an Adobe Acrobat Format document.  Use the Text Selection Tool or Graphic Selection Tool to select items.

You might also want to try a couple of other FREE pdf viewers which seem to be much better than the Adobe X or lower version Acrobat viewers. 
 
1)  PDF-XChange Viewer  (View/Modify or perform simple editing of PDF files) 
2)  Foxit Reader  (Small, fast, and feature rich PDF viewer which allows you to open, view, and print any PDF file. )
