[access-uk] Re: Adobe Reader questions

Hi both,

Thanks for the suggestions.  I will download the latest version of the
reader and see what happens with that.  That is - if I can find the
download, which at the moment I can't.  I went to www.adobe.com and
clicked on downloads and can't see where to go from there.  Can anyone
tell me where to go after that?
