Solutions to PDF issues

Some browsers use a PDF viewer that does not support dynamic PDF forms. In particular, Chrome and Safari are generally defaulted to their own PDF viewers rather than Adobe Reader. Using Internet Explorer will usually resolve the issue; otherwise two solution options are:

  1. Reconfigure your browser [exit DNR] to work with the Adobe Reader or Acrobat plug-in; or
  2. Save a copy of the form to your computer and then open it using Adobe Reader [exit DNR].
