[nabs-l] Navigating Large PDF document

Hi Miso,
I'm glad you got the issue resolved. In the future, could you email yourself the document and use it on your I-Phereo?
I had a 500 plus page PDF document with all the possible classes my school offered. I was able to open it as an I-Book and navigate around it the way I do books. I searched for any key words of classes I was interested in. The only thing is that I'm not sure if the page numbers of a PDF correspond with the pages if it was opened up in a book format.
