Pinpoint Referencing in iFrame Viewer

TradeLawGuide's iFrame viewer takes you to pinpoint references within PDF documents.  Pinpoint referencing is essential because of the complex web of linkages that the database creates between related information. The operability of PDF documents in various browsers frequently changes as the browsers are updated often requiring changes to the browser settings.

We are currently creating hypertext versions of all of the documents in our collection. Once this change is implemented the many annoyances caused by PDF documents including browser compatibility issues and searching issues will be eliminated.

Please enable pop-ups in your browser.

We recommend designating http://www.tradelawguide.com (the regular site address) and https://www.tradelawguide.com (the secure site address) as "trusted" sites in your browser.

FIREFOX:

Firefox version 52+ - This newest version of Firefox requires you to use the native PDF viewer in order for TLG's pinpoint referencing to work and advance the PDF document to the relevant page (note: unlike under earlier versions of this browser it will not automatically advance to the exact paragraph or footnote but to the relevant page). To ensure the correct setting, click on the menu icon at the top right corner of the browser then: > Options > Applications > Portable Document Format (PDF) > select "Preview in Firefox" (if you make this change you might have to close and reopen your browser in order for the pinpoint referencing to function).

Earlier versions - Earlier versions of Firefox since version 19 require the following settings for the pin-point referencing to function: > Tools > Options > Applications. In the Applications panel, please click on "Portable Document Format (PDF)". Open the drop-down menu and select "Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox)". You must have Acrobat Reader on your computer for this to work.

GOOGLE CHROME: Current versions of Google Chrome require you to use the native PDF viewer in order for TLG's pinpoint referencing to work and advance the PDF document to the relevant page (note: unlike under older versions of this browser it will not automatically advance to the exact paragraph or footnote but to the relevant page). To ensure the correct setting, click on the customize and control icon at the top right corner of the browser then: > settings > Show advanced settings (at bottom of menu) > Privacy > Content settings > scroll to bottom of content settings menu and uncheck "Open PDF files in the default PDF viewer application" > Done (if you make this change you might have to close and reopen your browser in order for the pinpoint referencing to function).
