Office applications

Adobe Reader

Adobe Reader enables you to open, view and print Portable Document Format (PDF) files. PDF files are often used for user guides and other instructions because the layout, fonts and graphics appear exactly as they were intended, regardless of what sort of computer you're using.

Note: Staff may install Adobe Acrobat Pro on their university workstation instead. It includes all the functionality of Adobe Reader, and adds PDF authoring capabilities. Open the Software Catalogue (Win) or Self Service (Mac) application to install Adobe Acrobat. To avoid potential conflicts, you should not install both Acrobat Pro and Adobe Reader.

Note: You cannot create or modify PDF files with Adobe Reader.
