PDF

Apple folks are frequent users of Adobe Acrobat files (or PDFs). I’ve never had any that I wanted to move to a Mac, but if you do, and for the sake of completeness with Apple’s Switcher Guide, here’s how you move them.

On the PC:

1.
Go through your My Documents folder and identify any folders that contain PDFs.

2.
Select one of the folders, and then choose Edit > Copy.

3.
Open the PDFs folder in the Switch CD folder set, and choose Edit > Paste.

This copies the PDF documents to the folder.

Repeat these steps if you have more than one folder of PDFs to transfer.

On the Mac:

1.
Insert the Switch CD in your Mac.

2.
When the Switch CD shows up on the Desktop, open it so that you can see the PDFs folder.

3.
Choose Go > Home to go to your home folder (or press Command-Shift-H).

A Documents folder appears in the window.

4.
Drag the PDFs folder from the CD to the Documents folder in your home folder. Your Mac will copy all of the PDFs into the Documents folder.

Note

Acrobat Reader is a fine program, but you don’t have to have it to read PDF files on your Mac. Mac OS X includes the Preview application, which can open PDF documents.
