the only way to get this stupid pdf is to post the link here then rh click to download it......their site auto opens it in a browser with no option to download it as it displays

...i WANT to save it to my HD....

rh clicking on the page gives you http://www.roland.com/products/en/_support/om.cfm?PRODUCT=SH%2D01&iRcId=25376612&dsp=1

Try using Firefox, go to Tools > Options > Applications > Choose PDF Type. Change 'Action' to 'Save File' or 'Always Ask'.

That should do it.

That's easy, a three fingered tap on the iPad and then select open in good reader. Then it's portable.

Where is the problem? Klicked on the first link, waited for the 23,0 MB to load, klicked on the save icon and got it on my HD. (Firefox 3.6 and Adobe Reader X )

Maybe I am missing something, but I see a "Download" button right there at the end of the licence agreement. Just click on it and it downloads.

Anyway, I am using Opera (best browser since years ago, every "new feature" and plugin Firefox gets is usually to copy functionality from Opera, with a few exceptions) and had no trouble with it.

Also, I like to use a specific download manager. In my case I chose "Internet Download Manager", which "catches" anything I want (and PDFs as well). I know there are similar ones for free, but this was one of my best investments in the tools department software.

One thing you could do is once you've clicked on the download you get the link to the file. Paste that link into a simple HTML page, open that file in your browser and then Save As.

I keep a blank HTML file on my desktop that all it has in the body is <a href="link to download">click me</a> for occasions such as this.

Same here, just save page as when it is embedded in the browser or the save/save as button in Foxit Reader (screw Adobe and it's bloatware pdf reader)
