Tips for PDFs
Downloading – Some files are quite large and may take several minutes to download into your browser window. Another option is to right-click on the file link to download the PDF file directly to your desktop or computer. This allows for better monitoring of the download process.
Printing – When printing a PDF, be sure that print scaling is set to "None." This will ensure that activities containing measurement items print in the correct dimensions.
