Some Mac users may have trouble opening and viewing PDF files in EBSCO. They may be downloaded as .asp

To set up a Macintosh to automatically open a PDF:

  • Download a PDF onto your computer desktop.
  • Select it by clicking on the downloaded file once.
  • Go to File>Get Info.
  • Under Open With select Preview (default) or Adobe Reader.
  • Click on Change All so that it will always open with Preview or Reader automatically, without requiring that the above steps be followed each time.
