PDF Reader--Specifying Its Location

If you want to access the PDF versions of the documentation, the Help system needs to know the location of your PDF reader (Adobe Acrobat).

For Windows systems, MATLAB reads the location from the registry, so you cannot specify its location using preferences.

For UNIX systems, when you installed MATLAB, it looked for your system's PDF reader. If found, MATLAB automatically supplied the PDF reader location in the preferences PDF reader field. If MATLAB could not locate your PDF reader or if you moved your PDF reader since installation, change the location in the PDF reader field. Use the ... button to browse your file system to select the location.
