PDF Primer

The "Repair and Service" document was created in portable data format (pdf) using Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.1.3. The file can be read with Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded free from http://get.adobe.com/reader/. If you have trouble viewing the document, you may need to update your version of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Navigation through large pdf files is accomplished far more easily than navigation through paper pages. Here we present some basic features of Adobe Acrobat that can be used to read this document.

  • The "PgUp" and "PgDn" keys on your keyboard will move you through the file, one screen at a time. To go to the top of the next page or previous page , left-click on the arrows.
  • To go to a specific page number, click inside the page number box (located along the top or bottom of your screen), then type the page number and hit the "enter" button.
  • To search for a specific word or phrase, type Ctrl-F, which will put your cursor in a small window. Type the phrase you are looking for, and hit enter.
  • Two types of links are used in this document.
    1. Corrections are indicated with visible red boxes. Left-clicking within a box will put the linked page on your screen.
    2. Links from the index are indicated with invisible boxes. The usual cursor converts to a pointing hand near a link; left-clicking then puts the linked page on the screen.
  • To return to a previous view, left-click on the previous-page-view button (a circle with a left-pointing arrow inside it). If this button does not appear in any of the panels around the edges of your screen, right-click near one of the navigation buttons (right or left arrows). This should bring up a menu; left-click on "previous view" to add this button to the panel.
  • Bookmarks are available by clicking on the bookmarked-page icon along the left side of the screen. Clicking on the "+" (plus sign) will make sub-categories visible; clicking on the "-" (negative sign) will hide them. Clicking on the icon next to the topic of interest will send you to the appropriate page.
For more detailed help, left-click on the "Help" menu (usually at the top of your screen) for the official Adobe Acrobat help files.
