I need help with acrobat

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

When clicking on one of the topics in the senate report, it opens up acrobat, and opens another window, both of which are empty. I highlight the address bar and click again, still nothing. Help!

Increase your browser memory AND your Adobe Acrobat memory. I had the same problem, then afterwards it worked.


See also this thread for individual Adobe PDF links here, for all 17 sections of the Senate Report.

Slightly easier to download and print -- very time consuming!

how does one increase browser and acrobat memory?

Diane, you must have a Mac? I don't think you can increase memory allocation on pc programs.

In the Windows 95 I'm using, I've seen no option for increasing "Acrobat memory."

But I have found out how to save a .pdf file to disk. From the Acrobat menu bar: [File] [Preferences] [General] then select [Allow background download of entire file] then OK.

Once the .pdf file is open, there's no provision to "Save" it. When you download a .pdf file, select [Save it to disk instead of [Open it. Later, offline, open Acrobat and open the file on disk.

Sorry PDF'r,

Took the day off. Yep, I have a Mac. There are some blessings.

If all else fails, like contacting your browser web-site or Adobe Acrobats, you could e the PDF URL to the adobe conversion, and receive back a text only version -- sans graphics. See this thread for discussion, links and oopsy.

Also looks like someone on that thread is putting up the HTML versions, bit by bit off a link.

Good luck.
