We recommend Adobe Reader to view Stata's PDF documentation. (Mac users please read the FAQ about why you shouldn't try to use Preview.)

Visit http://get.adobe.com/reader/ to download and install Adobe Reader.

After following Adobe's instructions to install Reader, you should start it once to complete any final setup which Reader may require.

Mac and Windows users: Reader may ask you to authenticate as administrator the first time you start it; you should do this to complete the setup.

After installing Adobe Reader, please read the recommended Adobe Reader settings for Stata's PDF documentation.
