Printing a PDF file. Answered

I am a member with User Name, Password, etc.
When  I attempt to download or print a PDF file, the site tells me I must become a member.
What's the secret here??

You must be a PRO member to get PDF files.

And as I like to point out to everyone with a qualm with paying for pro: Just publish feature-worthy material/contest winners and you get pro for free... :)

I agree. Its an easy way to get pro membership. ;)

mrbobbo, If you'd like more information on how to write a good instructable, here's an article outlining the "feature checklist". If you follow the guidelines within the article, you'll have much more success in getting featured, which again, translates into free pro membership.

There are a few perks to being a pro member. Being able to get PDF files is one. I think one of the best ones is not having to see all the adds. You probably don't know the difference but if I go to instructables on another computer and don't log on there are a lot of adds. You can make all of them go away by going pro.
