Portable Document Format (PDF) files

Rainforest testers can open and view PDF files in Rainforest Virtual Machines through the PDF readers preinstalled on the VM.

Microsoft Platform

All VMs that run a Windows operating system (OS), such as Chrome HD, Firefox HD, Internet Explorer 11 HD, etc. do have Adobe Acrobat Reader pre-installed and allow testers to open and view the PDF.

OSX Platform

VMs that run on OSX, namely OSX Chrome (HD), OSX Firefox (HD) and Safari (HD) do not have a specific application dedicated to opening a PDF.

To open a PDF on one of these VMs, use the preinstalled Preview application that is capable of opening and viewing PDFs. 

iOS Platforms

iOS VMs have no preloaded applications for opening and viewing PDFs. 

To view a PDF on one of these platforms, use the iOS VM's Safari browser which has PDF reading functionality. 

Android Platforms

Android VMs have a PDF viewer installed. After testers download the PDF, it will automatically open and can be accessed in the "Files" app on the VM.

You may need to instruct testers to allow Chrome to access the device's photo, media, and files.
