Problem

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

Solution

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'
