VIEWING ....
All
of these publications are provided here in PDF format, and to view them you will require a PDF reader in your PC. You can download and install either of the free Foxit or Adobe readers via the links on the right here - they 'unscramble' PDF files so that you can read them in your browser or in your computer once you have downloaded them. All you need do is double-click the PDF file (either the icon on your desktop, if that's where you've put it, or by hunting for it with Windows Explorer) and Foxit or Acrobat will do the rest.
PRINTING ....
This basic chore is not quite as simple as it appears.... both the Contest Booklet and the Rules are portrait documents that naturally print at A4, whereas you'll probably want the output as pairs of A5 pages on A4 landscape. Regrettably few printers can manage this simple task.... One very capable independent solution is "FinePrint", a sort of universal printer driver that acts like an intermediary between your computer and your printer output channels. Print to FinePrint (instead of your printer) and up pops up a preview window from which you decide how and where to print it (or of course to not print it at all - if something's not right you can abort the output and try again....), and provides various format translations to output from 2-up to 8-up on A4, with the duplex (both sides!) booklet printing that you want here. There are lots of 'delete this page', 're-order', 'copy to clip-board', 'save as ASCII' options you'll be hard put to find anywhere else, the thing typically saves 50% of your paper usage, and is one of those utilities that once you've got it you'll wonder how you managed before..... The 'free' download version has some minor limitations, registering and forking out the moderate fee clears them. As you can see, I'm a true convert.....!
