I'm not sure how to use the two programs together to read pdf's?

Roger. First, try to read the pdf inside Adobe Acrobat Reader. If that doesn't work and you get a message like "page is empty" then you can either: 1. go to print from the file menu or by hitting control+p, and in the list of available printers, pick KESI Virtual Printer. Hit enter and K1000 will launch and perform OCR on the file. or 2. Launch K1000 yourself and open the pdf document. The results will be the same as printing to the virtual printer.
