Online Forms: PDF Help
If you are experiencing trouble accessing the Adobe Acrobat (PDF) forms on this website, please refer to the note below.
Certain combinations of web browsers and Adobe's Acrobat PDF viewer result in problems when the PDF files are viewed from within the browser. When you click on a link to the form, a blank page may appear, 'garbage' text may appear, you may get an error message, or the page may 'freeze'.
There are several alternatives for opening the files.
Alternative 1: Disable Browser Integration
Exit from the browser
Open the Adobe Acrobat Reader
Go to File -> Preferences -> General
Un-check the "Web Browser Integration" box
Exit from the Adobe Acrobat Reader
Restart the web browser
The next time you select a link to a PDF file, a dialog box will prompt you to either "Open this file from its current location", or to "Save this file to disk". Select "Open from current location..." to view the file immediately.
Alternative 2: Save the form directly to your hard drive
Instead of opening the PDF form as you would a normal link, Right Click on the link to the PDF file and choose "Save Target As...".
Select an easy to remember location on your hard drive to store the file
Go to the location where you saved the form, and double-click the file to open
This will launch the Adobe Acrobat Reader
