Re: [Killietalk] Acrobat Reader
Thanks Bill. Note that some systems can't do this. In Mac OSX for example,
you have to configure the browser to open the PDF using Reader, outside the
browser. Browsers for that OS don't yet support opening them within the
browser window. I am sure the great majority of you are using Windows, so
Bill's advice is good.

To configure Acrobat Reader to open PDFs in your browser:
1. Start Acrobat Reader
2. With your mouse (or Alt-E), select the "Edit" tab on the top bar.
3. Select 'Preferences for the dropdown menu (the last item)
4. Select "General" from the submenu
4. Under "WEB browser options", check the 'check box' next to "Display
PDF in Browser"
And, Bob's your uncle.
