Advanced Usage

For viewing layers, use Acrobat Reader 6.0 or above. It is assumed you already know how to have Acrobat read the file because there are a number of ways to do that. Follow these instructions to Deselect/Select layers:

  1. Open the map Pioneer_Landowner_Map in Acrobat Reader
  2. Select each in turn: VIEW -> SHOW/HIDE -> NAVIGATION PAINS -> LAYERS. This will open up a Layers panel on the left side of the window.
  3. Under the Layers title is an icon that if you hover your mouse pointer on for a few seconds will say "options" click on that Icon and choose "Expand All"
  4. On the left of the Layers panel are little eye icons. Click on these to toggle the visibility of the various layers.
