Open/Save PDF Files

How do I open a PDF file?

You'll need Adobe PDF Reader to open a PDF. If you don't have Adobe Reader already installed on your computer, you can download it for free at http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Can I save my CP Magazine PDF on multiple devices, like on both my iPad and my computer?
Yes.  You can save it on up to three devices.  (Your link expires after three downloads.)

How do I save a PDF file to my computer (iPad/KindleFire/tablet, android)?
On desktop computers, with the PDF open in Adobe Acrobat, go to File>Save As.

For iPads, iPhones, with the PDF open, tap on the screen once, then choose which application you want to view the issue in.
For other devices, please Google "How do I save a PDF on my ____".

I used to see them in my Magcloud Digital Library.  Why can't I now?

In the past, individual issues of CP Magazine had to be ordered directly from Magcloud.com, which is our printer. You can still buy issues directly from Magcloud each month, if  you prefer.  Digital editions you buy from annkullberg.com will not open in the Magcloud app. 

I can't read the pages very well (or see the images large enough).  Can I enlarge them?

It is very, very easy to enlarge a PDF page.

1.)  Make sure you are viewing it in Adobe Reader (see above)

2.)  Along the top of the PDF tool bar, there is a PLUS and MINUS sign.  Click the Plus sign to enlarge the page.  Click it multiple times to enlarge it further.

How do I see two pages at a time of the PDF magazine?
With a PDF open, click on View > Page Display.  From there, you can choose between single page or two page view.

It won't let me save the PDF without a password.  What do I do?

You will need to right click the link to the PDF  (in the email sent to you) and then choose Save As.   If you just click the link, instead, some older browsers open the PDF within the browser itself, so then the PDF is not save-able. 

CD Combos

How do I unzip the CD Combo Zip file?
If an unzipping program is not already installed on your computer, you can download Winzip here for free >

I've unzipped the CD Combo.  Now what?
Double-click on the "index.htm" file and you're good to go!
