Configure How PDFs Display in Your Internet Browser
You may wish to explore and possible modify the settings that determine how your PDF will display in a browser.
To set your preferences:
Choose ‘Edit’ on the top menu and select ‘Preferences’.
From the menu on the left-hand side, select ‘Internet’.
In the ‘Web Browser Options’ section, check the options that best suit your needs.
Display Read Mode by Default - allows any PDF opened from the web to display inside the current
browser window with a semi-transparent toolbar that provides limited menu options such as
printing and saving. If this option is de-selected, PDF documents open in a separate Acrobat
window and have full menu functionality.
Allow Fast Web View - downloads PDF files for viewing one page at a time. If this option is de-
selected, the entire file downloads before it is displayed.
Allow Speculative Downloading in the Background – allows a PDF file to continue downloading
from the web, even after the first requested page displays. Downloading in the background stops
once you start any other task, such as paging through the document.
Unless you have Administrative Rights for the computer you are using, ignore the ‘Internet Options’
Convert Web Pages
To convert a web page to a PDF file,
Click the ‘Create’ icon on the Task toolbar.
Select ‘Create PDF from Web Page’.
The ‘Create PDF from Web Page’ dialog pops up to display the URL, Settings, and Capture Multiple Levels
Enter the URL.
Click on the Capture Multiple Levels icon to expand
the ‘Create PDF from Web Page’ dialog box.
Select how many levels of the web page you want to
capture. (Note: capturing all levels, i.e. the entire
website, will take a long time and will significantly
increase your file size.)
The ‘Settings…’ button in the lower right corner
takes you to the ‘Web Page Conversion Settings’
dialog box. In this dialog box, you have the General
tab and the Page Layout tab.
Under the General tab, you change the conversion
settings and the PDF settings.
