If you are using Google's Chrome Browser to view our PDF maps, you should be aware that Chrome uses Google's PDF viewer by default, rather than the Adobe Reader application.   Because of this some PDF documents may not work as designed in Google's Chrome Browser due to this default setting.

To address this you have two options.

Choose with plug-in you wish to view your PDF's with in Chrome.  Simply type "about:plugins" into the address bar, find the Adobe Reader plugin in the list, and click enable to enable the plugin and disable the Google "PDF Viewer".  If the Adobe Reader plugin is not listed, go to Adobe's website to download it.
