Science Direct PDFs in Adobe X
There have been numerous reports of difficulties in downloading PDFs from Science Direct on student access PCs, particularly at Allerton. This seems to be related to known incompatibility issues between Science Direct PDFs and Adobe X, which is installed on most of those PCs. If you experience a blank grey screen, then one stop-gap solution is to right click on the PDF link or icon and select the 'Save Target as...' option. Save the file to a specific location, i.e. desktop, and open the PDF from there.
Science Direct will be contacted to ascertain what progress is being made in alleviating this problem on a more long-term basis.
