How do I open one of the catalogues featured on your website?
Just left-click the catalogue you want to open.
I'd like to download the catalogue onto my computer to be able to access it later on without being connected to the internet. How can I do this?
If you are using Netscape as your browser:
Right-click the catalogue. A context menu will appear. Select the "Save link target as..." option. A dialogue box will appear for you to set the location where you want to store the catalogue (folder, floppy...). Finally click the "Save" button.
Left-click the catalogue. A dialogue box will ask you whether you want to open it or save it to disk.
If you are using Internet Explorer as your browser:
Right-click the catalogue. A context menu will appear. Select the "Save target as..." option. A dialogue box will appear for you to set the location where you want to store the catalogue (folder, floppy...). Then click the "Save" button.
Once the catalogue is stored in my computer, how do I open it?
Double-click the "My computer" icon, locate the file in your system and double-click on it.
Note: On Mac OS, you may not be able to open a PDF document
created in Windows by double-clicking the icon. If double-clicking the
icon on Mac OS does not open the document, use File > Open in Acrobat to
open the document, close the document, and try again. After you've used
the Open command once on the document, you'll be able to open the document
next time by double-clicking.
Can I change the magnification level of the catalogue?
Once you have opened a catalogue, you can increase or reduce magnification at any time. To change magnification do one of the following:
to increase magnification, select the zoom-in tool and click the page. To decrease magnification, press CTRL (Windows, Unix) or Option (Mac OS) while selecting the zoom-in tool or while clicking the page.
click the magnification value box on the status bar and choose a magnification level.
click the View menu. A drop-down menu will appear showing several settings for you to resize the page as required. "Fit" options will remain active until you change them again.
If the page is larger than the window, select the Hand
tool and drag it over the page so that you can see all its areas.
You can also set the default magnification level so that all documents are opened with the same magnification level. Click the File or View menu (depending on your Reader version), select Preferences from the drop-down menu, then select General and type the required magnification level in the Default magnification box.
Depending on your screen, we recommend you set this level at 180-250%, so that a full line will fit the window and the font size will be acceptable even for book indexes.
