Potential Problems in Accessing Online Publications

Difficulty opening or downloading a publication from the Publications Warehouse:

Here are some steps you can take to minimize the occurrence of error messages or other problems when opening or downloading a publication:

False color rendering of bitmaps, such as photographs:

Chrome version 36.0.1985.125 running On Mac OS X often, but not always, renders bitmaps, such as photographs, incorrectly. Such images are rendered with a strong magenta hue. Google has been notified of this problem, which you can avoid by using a different browser.

Map sheet printing error:

Map sheets may not print from large plotters through some versions of Adobe Reader. These sheets may be printed with Foxit Reader. Download the latest version of Foxit Reader, free of charge.

Portable Document Format (PDF) bookmarks and some links do not work in the Google Chrome PDF Viewer:

The built-in PDF viewer found in the Chrome Web browser does not display PDF bookmarks and links do not always work appropriately. This can be corrected by disabling the built-in PDF viewer and enabling Adobe Reader by following the following directions.
