Navigation, print & pdf-help


The Cerme 1 - Proceedings are created in the Internet standard pdf-file-format.
"PDF is an acronym for "Portable Document Format". PDF is a file format created by Adobe that lets you view and print a file exactly as the author designed it, without needing to have the same application or fonts used to create the file. Since its introduction in 1993, PDF has become an Internet standard for electronic distribution that faithfully preserves the look and feel of the original document complete with fonts, colors, images, and layout." Adobe-quotation

For most people electronic publications are not that easy legible as printed books. But they help to cope with the tremendous amount of literature because of their electronic navigation and search features, furthermore they are the very means to spread information at low costs worldwide.

In order to view, navigate and print pdf-files the free Adobe Reader (version 4) must be installed as a Web-browser-plugin (or run as a separate application).
Win and Mac OS: Web-browsers Version 4.0 (or later) compatible with Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer; Unix: Web-browsers Version 4.0 (or later) compatible with Netscape Navigator only.

get-adobe-readerIf the Adobe Reader (version 4) is not yet installed you can get the Reader for free from the Adobe Page. There are further easy download instructions available. To install the Reader simply execute the downloaded file.


printerThe Cerme 1 - Proceedings are formatted for printing on A4 paper. To print on letter paper, choose "Shrink to Fit"/"Fit to Page" while printing from Adobe Acrobat software.

Global Navigation


To obtain a quick survey and to skip around to desired points within the Cerme 1 - Proceedings bookmarks and linked areas are provided.
You may need to choose Window >Show Bookmarks to open the Bookmark palette or click the Bookmark tab to bring the palette to the front of its group.
If you want the entire CERME 1 -Proceedings to continue downloading in the background while you view the first page, be sure that in the dialog box File >Preferences >General "Allow Background Downloading" is selected.


Click on the appropriate bookmark to jump to a topic, e. g. each contribution is bookmarked including the headings of its major paragraphs.
You may open a collapsed folder-bookmark (it has a plus sing /Windows/ or a triangle - /Mac OS/ next to it) to see what's inside.

- or -

open-handGo to the Contents page, move the handshaped-cursor over the titles (or the page numbers). It will change to a hand with a pointing finger pointing-hand, which indicates you reached a linked area. Click, if you like to jump to the given topic.

Keywords / Author Index

In case of Keywords and Author Index be sure to touch the page-numbers to obtain the jump possibility. For better orientation the page numbers are preceded by the group numbers, thus giving some hint to which context the link will take. Again while moving towards the linked area the shape of the cursor changes from an open hand to a hand with a pointing finger, then offering the jump possibility.


Tracking your way

Like in Web-browsers you may go back and forward the individual way you have chosen to skip through the Cerme 1 - Proceedings.
