This was posted in the NAIFA USPAP chat by someone that only posted his name as John. It allows you to download USPAP 2003 (or anything, really) into PDF format to make it searchable, with tabs for each statement, AO, etc. I thought I'd copy the info over here for those that don't read that forum.

If you use Adobe to download the file instead of simply printing to Adobe, the links will still work and you can search it.

1. Load Adobe
2. Click on the "File" menu
3. Click on "Open Web Page"
4. Put in the correct URL of the table of contents
5. Set "levels" to 2
6. Check both "Only get pages under same path" and "Stay on same server"
7. Click on "Coversion settings" and then on "Page Layout"
8. Set the top, bottom, left, and right margins to one inch
9. Click on OK
10. Click on download

In just a few minutes you will have the entire document (searchable) with links intact. (346 pages on my machine. If that's too long, you may want to make the margins less than an inch.

There are other settings other than the ones mentioned above but the defaults are ok. You may want to experiment the compression settings.

This works with Adobe 4 or 5 but not 3.


I did a search to see if it had been posted before, and didn't come up with anything. Hope someone else finds it as cool as I did :D

At a seminar I took several years ago, the instructor kept calling me Mary Ann, I told him I even answer to Hey You--so that is what he has called me since whenever we cross paths at a seminar. Other nicknames given to me by loan officers aren't printable!

Thanks for posting that link. I'm not very savy at using all the "buttons" when posting. I need to spend some time in the test forum.
