About Adobe Acrobat     >>  Go Back   >> Print this page



What is Adobe and why do you use it?
The Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is the worldwide standard for online document distribution and sharing. PDF is a universal file format that preserves the fonts, formatting, colors, and graphics of the source document, regardless of the software application in which it was created. PDF files are compact (often smaller than the source files) and can be shared, viewed, and printed by anyone using Acrobat Reader.

The Web Statement system uses Adobe's PDF format for displaying web statements. Using PDF means that you get all of the pages associated with a statement in one easy-to-manage bundle, which can be viewed, printed, or stored together. « 


How do I know if I have Adobe Acrobat?
Adobe Acrobat Reader is already included on many computers today.

If your browser displays the resulting document, or starts another application which displays the document, then you have the appropriate plugin already installed.

If your browser doesn't know how to display the document, you'll need to download and install Adobe Acrobat (free of cost for Windows, Macintosh, and Unix)
