2.13 Viewing PDF Files and Other Documents

Documents that need to be shared or printed across platforms can be saved as PDF (Portable Document Format) files, for example, in the suite. View them with Okular, the default KDE document viewer.

Start Okular from the main menu or press Alt+F2 and enter okular.

To open a document, select File > Open and choose the desired file from the file system. Navigate through the documents by using the navigation icons at the top or bottom of the window. If your PDF document provides bookmarks, you can access them in the left panel of the viewer.

Okular also allows you to review a document by highlighting certain text parts or adding annotations. For more information about working with Okular, see Section 5.0, Viewing PDF Files and Other Documents with Okular, (↑ Application Guide ).

Alternatively, you can also view PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader. If Acrobat Reader is not installed by default, install the acroread package with YaST. To start Acrobat reader, press Alt+F2 and enter acroread or start the program from the main menu. Click File > Open, locate the desired PDF file and click Open to view the file.
