    Using adobe with iMac
    I am new to the Mac world. Did not grow up with a computers so I am a real novice.
    I am trying to view PDFs on my mac and it told me I needed to download adobe, which I did. Now adobe shows up on the screen but I am still having trouble viewing PDFs.
    Any Suggestions?

    take a look at this page https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0 and see if it helps.. other than that, make sure you downloaded the correct version for your OS, or you could try Download Skim for Mac - PDF Reader and note-taker for scientific papers. MacUpdate.com

    Good Luck

    Your Mac should already be able to read .pdf files with its own application called Preview.
    I am kind of a minimalest and try not add anymore applications than I have to.
    Try Preview before going out and downloading more applications, and then decide.
    Having said that there are many reasons for needing additional applications.

    Thanks David, wasn't sure about that as it's been a loooong time since installing my OS
