On some computers, the PDF viewer in Google Chrome has various limitations (for example, it does not print dotted lines).


Set Adobe Reader as the default option for opening PDF files.

  • If Adobe Reader (free download) is not installed on your computer, you'll need to install it (Click here to Download Reader).
  • In Chrome type, chrome://settings into your URL bar
  • Search for PDF
  • Click on the Content settings option
  • Click on the PDF documents option
  • Turn off the 'Download PDF files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome'
