PDF Problems?

Some students have told me about problems opening PDF files. It seems that Adobe has upgraded to Adobe 9.0, and some older PDF files (especially made in non-Adobe software) isn’t displaying correctly anymore. If this happens to you, you can still access my PDF files using one of the following methods:

  • Use an older version of Adobe. (Adobe Reader 8.0 works for me; here’s a Windows download link…)
  • Try an alternative PDF reader like Foxit Reader.
  • Email the file to yourself using Gmail. (It’s easy to make an account, if you don’t have one, and the storage space is huge so you can save spare copies of your homework assignments there forever!) When you open the email, scroll down to the attachment and select “View as HTML” at the bottom of the email and you should be able to see the essay text.

If these methods don’t work for you, then let me know and I’ll try find another way for you to access my PDFs, until I (maybe, someday) get a chance to ugrade them.
