Based on some common questions we get about the Pine Knoll Publications web site.
What browsers do you support? Print
Written by Sierra Chinn

Our website supports the following browsers. 
IE 7
Firefox (Windows & Mac)
Safari (Windows & Mac)

Using an older version may cause some pages to display incorrectly or to not load completely. It is important to keep up with newer versions of each browser as they are released because they fix flaws and security issues in previous versions.  If you do not have the latest version of these browsers please follow the links above and visit the websites to download them (with Safari on a Mac please use "Software Update" in the apple menu). 

Our website is also optimized for a display width of 1024, which means that the page is 1,024 pixels across.  (A pixel is a small square of light that makes up a computer monitor).  To see if your monitor is large enough (in Windows) simply right click on the desktop and select Properties.  Go to the "Settings" tab and you will see a portion called "Resolution" with a sliding arrow that you can move from "less" to "more."  This tells you how many pixels your monitor is displaying and how many it can display.  Drag the arrow until you see 1024 (or above) and you are now optimized to see our website at its finest.

I have trouble opening the written study helps. Why? Print
Written by Alan Fahrner

Recently we've been getting quite a few e-mails with people having trouble with the written study helps we provide.  The "short story" is that folks should upgrade Adobe Reader to the latest version (which, at the time this article was last updated, is version 9).  Luckily, that can be done for free at:


Depending on how old the version you presently have is you can get various errors.  Some have complained of it coming up blank, others of receiving an encryption error, etcetera.  All of these will be remedied if you upgrade using the link above.

If you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat (instead of just the Reader), you also should upgrade--but we do realize that that isn't free.  However, the recent slew of e-mails about the study notes was because they were saved in a format that was backward compatible to version 7 and above--two generations behind the current version.  We did roll it back to version 5 for now, but at some point we'll need to take advantage of more recent functionality (Adobe was the one who decided that being backward compatible to version 7 was the right choice when we upgraded to version 9).

We do upgrade Adobe Acrobat regularly. Smile

Finally...you may have noticed that we password protect the files--but only against making changes (it allows high-quality printing and copying text from the document).  It is the encryption related to this that actually causes most of the trouble if people aren't using a recent version of Acrobat Reader...
