Where to Download

Use your browser to log into your account at Quilter Log In (top right of window) to download and save the Inklingo PDF on your computer (not in the cloud). 

Windows and Mac

There are separate instructions for opening on Windows and Mac below.

 

Open on Windows (Microsoft)

1. Make sure you have Adobe Reader/Acrobat.

2. Configure Adobe Reader/Acrobat.
In Adobe Reader, in the top menu bar, go to Edit > Preferences > JavaScript > Confirm that enable Acrobat JavaScript is checked and Enable Global object security policy is NOT checked. Click OK.

Configure Adobe Reader

3. File > Open and navigate to wherever you saved the PDF on your hard drive. It will open on the cover page.

Play with View and Bookmarks and have a look around. There is a 3 minute Guided Tour video explaining how these big PDFs are organized.
