  1. To view the options on how to adjust pdf settings, click the down arrow to the right of the file name (outlined in fig.1 above).
  2. From the options that appear, select Always open in Adobe Reader (fig. 2). This accomplishes two different things:
    1. Reports pulled as a pdf will open automatically
    2. Print reliability will improve versus using the browser PDF viewer
