FOR MAC USERS
Today many web browsers use a non-Adobe PDF viewer. These PDF viewers do not have the full functionality of Adobe Acrobat Reader. As a result, they can make errors when opening PDF files and you will not be notified. Currently, our DORA
reports have graphs and check marks that require the real Adobe Acrobat Reader. Follow the links below if your browser is trying to use something other than Adobe Acrobat to open your PDF files.
If you are using OS X and Safari browsers:
Mac OS X users must change their default setting for viewing PDF files so that Apple's "PDF viewer" is not the default tool. If it remains so, all of your PDF reports' form fields will be blank. Depending on the version of OS X you use, you may need to view the "detailed instructions" link below. You can also do both if you are not sure which version you are using. Also, in general, if you update your OS X version or get a new Mac, be sure to update your Acrobat version with the latest patch or update. Adobe Acrobat tends to be sensitive to changes in the OS X version.
If you are using Firefox:
These instructions will allow you to view PDF files in Firefox using Adobe Acrobat instead of the PDF viewer built into Firefox. The PDF viewer built into Firefox has limited capabilities and will incorrectly view many Let's Go Learn PDF files generated for student reports.
