1. ProQuest and Adobe Print Options
Most of the time, it is preferable to use the print button provided by ProQuest over the print feature provided by Adobe Reader. Often, the ProQuest print option will distribute the article over several pages to provide a better printed image. Adobe Reader may compress the article to fit on a single printed page, making it more difficult to read. The ProQuest print option will also aim to re-orient the article image (landscape or portrait) to best suit the size and shape of the article.
If using the ProQuest print option does not yield the desired results, we recommend trying the Adobe print option.
