We are making our presentations available in a couple of different ways. Glen Huey’s story on building a Shaker Shop Stool is our first example, and the online version of it is available here. Before the article starts, there is a line of text that says “This presentation is available as a PDF. Click here to download.” We’re doing this because there are advantages to both formats. This post explains what you get in the PDF, and gives some hints for taking full advantage of the features within. If you have a plug-in on your browser that lets you read PDFs online, you will be able to read the article online, but the feature we’re most excited about, embedded video, won’t work. The same situation happens if you read the PDF on your tablet or smart phone. The embedded videos only function if you open the file with Adobe Reader on your computer. If your computer is a PC, you likely already have Adobe Reader installed. If your machine is a Mac, you also need to use Adobe Reader. Preview, the native Mac software for reading PDF files won’t allow the videos to play. If you already have Reader on your computer, it wouldn’t hurt to update to the latest version.
