What you can do with PDFs
PDF files can be:

- Viewed online in your web browser: Click on the link to open and read the document online.

You need a PDF reader to view a PDF file online. There are a number of PDF readers you can use: a common one is Adobe Reader, which is available free of charge from the Adobe website.
Reading and navigating a PDF
When you open a PDF, you’ll see options on the toolbar and menu that enable you to use the document more efficiently.
In Adobe Reader, these include:
- Search for keywords: Press the ‘F’ key while holding down Ctrl. A panel will open to enable you to search the document for a keyword.
- Scroll quickly through the pages: Click the arrow symbols on the toolbar to move back and forth through the pages.
- Change the text size: Press your + or – keys to enlarge or reduce the text size. Alternatively, change the zoom percentage (eg, from 75% to 100%).
- Copy text to paste into another document: Click on the Select Tool (arrow icon) on the toolbar – or find it in the Tools menu if it’s not displayed on the toolbar. This changes the cursor to a vertical line. You’ll then be able to copy and paste text from the PDF into a word processing document. Note: Please be aware of our copyright notice before copying text for use elsewhere.
The latest versions of Adobe Reader include features that make it easier for people with disabilities to read PDF files. To set these up, go to Edit > Accessibility > Set up.
