HCWE is now storing new publication releases in the Adobe Creative Cloud repository. This has several advantages for subscribers. It means that the PDF can be easily viewed in any browser on any device without the need for Acrobat Reader or an Acrobat browser plugin or extension. This means easy access from mobile devices. In addition, the link for each publication title will remain constant so that any time you access the link you will find the current release of the associated publication. Save the links!
Once you have accessed the link from the publication release email or by pasting the link in your browser location bar, you can freely read the PDF without the need for an Acrobat plugin or extension. However, the link takes you to a web page that displays the contents of the PDF, not the PDF itself. Most browsers cannot print from this link. If you want to save or print the PDF you will need to download the actual file.
To save, view and print the file later you need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Pro installed on your system. You can download and install Acrobat Reader without cost from www.Adobe.com. You may also want to install an Acrobat plugin or extension in your browser so you can save and print the PDF directly from the browser. See your browser settings for options to download and install plugins or extensions. In any case, If you want to keep the PDF for future reference you need to download and save the actual PDF file. Then you can access it at any time with Acrobat Reader or a compatible reader application. The following instructions explain how to do that in detail.
Assuming that you are able to open the publication link in your browser, you can view a short instructional video or just read the instructions below.
