I wish to download and then print a Porter-Cable manual, but it’s difficult or impossible to do so, as I can only find it in an Adobe .pdf format. Is there a way to otherwise save and then print their manuals? Thanks very much. —- Ned

Is there a reason you can’t use Adobe PDF? I believe Adobe reader is free to download from them and you can print and save using it. You just can’t create or edit PDF documents.

You can save the pdf file to your pc and print it whenever. They use the pdf format so you can’t edit and change their property (the document).

Right click → save as…

The PDF format has been an open standard since 2008, so pretty much every computing platform on the planet can handle it without much fuss. You should be able to save and print them just like any other document, and there are a bunch of utilities (mostly open source and free) that let you convert to other formats (such as postscript) easily should you require it..
