Instructions for using interactive PDF files

In order for you to edit and save interactive PDF instructions, you basically need the free downloadable AdoBe repository. To use this software, you should have a smartphone / tablet or computer that meets the minimum hardware requirements of the Adobe Reader.

In order to be able to use the full functionality of the PDF instructions, they must also be opened in the browser and Javascript must be activated. The system requirements for Adobe Reader: The files can of course also be viewed in any other PDF viewer. However, it can be that the interactivity (linking directly to the yarn side, the zooming of the guide images) is lost.

If you are having trouble viewing larger brochures or reports in PDF format online, we recommend downloading the booklet and storing it directly on your hard drive.
