Hi Group

Subject says it all really.

Have got a No-Print pdf file.

Is there a PRINTABLE version out there?

Regards, Ron

I've just looked at the Nikon web site and once you have
registered you can download the User Manual. It says that only
manuals published after 2008 are unprintable, so if that is where
you got your copy you should be able to print it.

Have you looked at Tom Hogan's web site http://www.bythom.com/ ?
His ebook user guide is much more comprehensive and informative
than anything by Nikon albeit it does cost $29.95. I have a D70s
and knew nothing about how it meters etc until I read his book -
worth every penny as far as I'm concerned.

Have you tried using something other than Acrobat to open the pdf?

Thanks Woody, will check that out.
Yes Huge, Open Office Draw, Bullzip and Nitro - Zero luck.

I've just downloaded and printed it (or at least the first half-dozen pages)
fine, using Ubuntu Linux, so there are tools which will print it.

Is there a Windows port of xpdf or gpdf, for example?

Tiny bit more investigation reveals that Ubuntu uses a program called
"evince" to open pdfs by default, and that there is a Windows port of it
downloadable here;

http://www.umbio.com/download/software/software.asp

Only a 30-day trial, but that should be enough.

I thought that the Nikon manuals were printable [except in the USA] All
mine are.

Ask on Nikonians they will know

That's a totally different program with the same name. It's easy to
run something like Ubuntu LiveCD to access Linux applications for
occasional use, rather than trying to find a version that runs under
Windows.

Oh. Bother. Thanks.

I was trying to help the O/S disadvantaged, many of whom may find booting
a different O/S rather challenging. Personally, I run Windows XP as a
VM under VirtualBox if I need reminding how horrible it is.

My original post was as a result of wanting the manual before buying the
camera to check things out.

I have now bought a different make, daren't tell you which, or you'll flame
me :-)

Thanks everyone for your responses, one thing it has proved is that this NG
is alive, well and kicking.

Thanks.

Regards, Ron
