Adobe and me only barely get on. Their readers keep crashing. Anyway they’ve recently upgraded their reader and in chrome it displays pdf files very much as if they are html files – rather than bringing up the clunky old reader within the browser. All very nice. But there’s a big problem – for me anyway. Now I can’t figure out how to save the pdf files. When I go to ‘save page as’ sometimes it will save a pdf file, but often it saves an html page, and that’s with a big blank on the screen (where the pdf goes). Not helpful, I think you’ll agree. I’ve also tried printing the page as a pdf using my trusty cute pdf program. But that doesn’t work – just producing a pdf of the browser page I can see before me.
Is Adobe really ‘upgrading’ its free reader to degrade its usefulness to force us to buy the full program? Somehow I suspect a stuff-up rather than a conspiracy. Can someone please enlighten me (and others) as to how to save pdf files when they open up in my browser now the dinky (and clunky) additional toolbar with a little disc icon no longer loads? I’ve had a bit of a look on the Adobe forum without success. I’m using Chrome, but expect the problem will be the same in other browsers.
