I've tried opening, I've tried save. All I get is a word document with a load of gobbledegook in it. What am I doing wrong? TIA
I hope I am not pointing out the obvious but have you installed Adobe Acrobat on your computer first? It is available free off the internet.
PDF files shouldn't be opened in MS Word. They should be opened in Adobe Acrobat, as alux says. If you've got Adobe Acrobat installed, it should start up when you double-click on the .pdf file.
I think I must have Adobe Acrobat, because when I use the City Council's website it opens them up ok. The file automatically went to a word document. How can I double check I have AA installed? TIA
On my computer, I see Acrobat Reader 5.0 in my All Programs menu.
Any chance the file name has got muddled and is whatever.pdf.doc? That would cause this?
go to 'start' 'all programs' and you should see either Adobe or Acrobat, open it up and then try opening the document from 'file' 'open'
