Just wanted to post this where another member might find it in time of need --

I signed up for a PR class (Clone Your Favorite Garment by Kenneth King) and found that I couldn't download the lesson pdfs. They would appear to be loading, but then I just got a blank screen.

I knew how it was supposed to work (you click the link and the pdf loads, but before you can see the lesson you get a password prompt) because I had just finished another class.

Searching the Bugs and Problems thread I found that another PR member had had a similar problem here. Deepika suggested she try using an alternate search engine. (She had been using Chrome, as was I.)

Her result isn't posted, but I assume it worked, because it worked for me. I logged on using IE, and was able to download the lessons as usual.

hi Marjorie,

By default Chrome uses a built in viewer.

You can disable that. Instructions are here

Thanks, Deepika -- I disabled the built-in viewer, and now in Chrome I get the pdf pop-up at the bottom of the screen as usual, which I can click to view.

If anyone else wants to disable the Chrome built-in viewer, just copy about:plugins into your address bar in Chrome and look for the third item down.

Wonder why I didn't have any trouble with the Bust Adjustments class pdfs, though?
