Printing Adobe .PDF Files

In order to successfully print Adobe PDF files, in their intended format and size, users should ideally have the most recent version of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed. [As of 2/6/2012, the most recent edition is Version 10.1.2]

You can determine which version you currently have installed by:

If your currently installed version is prior to version 9.0, then you should consider upgrading to the latest version, in order to take advantage of the latest printing and display options.

Note: If you have a dial-up internet connection, be advised that it will take a significant amount of time to download the new Acrobat Reader software installation file, which is currently approximately 41 Mb in size. You may want to consider an alternative means of downloading or arranging to obtain the installation file, such as downloading it to another computer, one with a broadband (fast) internet connection, and then moving the file to your computer, via a CD-R, ZIP, or USB drive.

After you have successfully installed the latest version of the Acrobat Reader software, you will need to place a check in the "Choose Paper Source by PDF page title" option box, in order to successfully print .PDF files in their intended size and format.

For the CFRS.PDF files, this will allow the schedules to print on legal sized paper, and the extension forms to print on letter sized paper, by default. See below graphic of the Printing pop-up menu. The "Printing" option box will display when you try to print a PDF file.
