Acrobat PDF Viewer
Many PDF files are large and may take awhile to download.
Once you have acquired the Acrobat viewer you must configure
your Web browser (e.g. Netscape, Mosaic,etc.) to launch the viewer
when you click on a PDF file.
Now every time you download a PDF file, the acrobat viewer will be launched
automatically and enable you to view the file.
- In the preferences or options menu (depending on what browser you are using) you will need to add a new "Helper
Application". For Mosaic for Windows you will have to edit the mosaic.ini file.
- Select "Helper Applications" or "Apps".
- Select "New". Enter "image" for the mime type, "pdf" for the subtype, "pdf" for the extensions.
- Select Launch Application (e.g. Acrobat Reader) under the "Action" section.
