NAVIGATING BY BOOKMARKS
A “bookmark” is the principal navigation tool in our PDF files. All of a file’s bookmarks are available when the “View Bookmarks and Page” is selected in your PDF viewer. Bookmarks in MDS’ PDF publications will usually list all primary and secondary headings found in the manual. In addition, there are bookmarks for the covers and other relevantinformation.
NAVIGATING BY THUMBNAILS
A second navigation tool is the “thumbnails” provided when “Thumbnails and Page” is selected in your PDF viewer. This is suitable for casual scanning of the book as if you were thumbing through the paper version. Clicking on the page thumbnail will take your view screen directly to that page. You can also resize the view box on the thumbnail to change themagnification level and the area being viewed.
NAVIGATING BY HOTLINKS
Many PDF versions of our manuals are equipped with hotlinks between portions of the document. Links in the body are displayed as magenta colored strings of text. When your cursor is positioned over a hotlink, the open hand will change into a pointing finger. Clicking on the link location will move you to the associated section ofthe manual. In some manuals, the hotlinks are only found in the Table of Contents—one link for each major section. These links are indicated by magenta boxes with dashed lines.
This file contains all of the pages of the paper manual including the covers and is ready for printing. The file will image each page exactly as it appears in the paper version if you have a 1200 dpi printer.Lower resolution printers are supported, but highly detailed illustrations such as schematics may not be as readable. Some manuals will have 11 x 17 inch foldout pages. These pages will print on the default size of 8-1/2 x 11 inches in the “portrait” orientation scaled to fit on the page. To print the foldouts as they appear in the paper manual, select 11 x 17 inch (“Tabloid”) paper stock and the“landscape” orientation in the page set-up window and print the foldouts separately. (This assumes you have a large format printer on-line.)
