4. Managing PDFs in Xodo and Adobe

This is a guide for working with the InterRAI (or any PDF) in Xodo and Adobe. Certain portions are different based on the type of computer (Chromebook, PC, or Mac).

Downloading the InterRAI

Same process for all computers 

You need to download the InterRAI to your computer so that you have it as a local file. From your email with the file download it via option 1 or 2 below

  1. Select the download icon while in the email
    • Make sure you select “Download” NOT “Add to Drive”
  1. Click on the document in the email, then click on the Download button in the top right corner. 

DO NOT OPEN THE DOWNLOAD!!!!!

Do not touch the downloaded document after it downloads


Opening the InterRAI

Different process based on your computer

XODO
  1. Open a new webpage and go to Xodo.com
  1. Select Launch Now
  1. On the new page select “Local File” under OPEN A FILE
  1. This will take you to your computer files, where you need to find and open the InterRAI you just downloaded
Chromebook

Select Downloads or Recent

PC

Select Downloads

Select the downloaded InterRAI. This will open up the InterRAI in Xodo

As the InterRAI loads it will look like blank pages, this is fine. 

Xodo can be very slow; but as long as it does not tell you “Network Error” it should be loading.

Uploaded InterRAI on Xodo
  1. Once loaded, you can zoom in with the “+” in the toolbar
    • Note: Do NOT zoom in any other way. 

Now you should be able to type/select answers

ADOBE

Does not work on Chromebooks

You need to make sure you have or download Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Instructions on how to do so at the end of this document)

  1. Open your computer files (this varies by computer)
  1. Go to your downloads
  1. Left click on the document ONCE
  1. Then right click on the document
  1. Choose “Open with”
  1. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader DC
Open InterRAI in Adobe

Editing the InterRAI

Same process between Xodo and Adobe

This is to make sure that the uploaded InterRAI is functional. If the following works, then you can move forward with using the InterRAI. Otherwise you need to download a new/different blank. 

  1. The InterRAI must have the green “PHW Effective 1/8/2020” on the first page

2. Go to Section G and put some value in for Meal Preparation (both Performance and Capacity)

  1. Go to the SPG tool and select days of the week beside Meal Preparation
    • If a value is generated in the “Suggested Hours” column, then the InterRAI works! 


Signing the InterRAI

Same process for any computer

XODO
  1. Go to Section T

2. Find the Signature function in the toolbar

3. Click on it and it will turn your mouse cursor into a “+”

  1. Click to the left of the signature box
    1. **If you try clicking in the Red signature box it won’t work
  1. Once you click where you want to sign, the signature box will appear
    • Write in your signature (either with your finger on the touchscreen, or with your mouse/trackpad)
  1. Press the check mark in the bottom right corner to place your signature

After you place your signature, you are still in the signature function (meaning if you click somewhere you’ll place another signature). Therefore:

  1. Click on the “Select” button which looks like your regular mouse arrow
  1. Now you can alter the size and placement of your signature

Adobe

Be careful as signing in Adobe may “break/lock” the InterRAI 

  1. Go to Section T

  1. Find the Signature function in the toolbar

  1. Click “Add signature”  
  1. Select “Draw” and Draw in your signature

  1. Click “Apply”
  2. Place your signature where you want it

Saving the InterRAI

Different Process between Xodo and Adobe

Xodo
  1. Select “Save” at the top of the page
    • Make sure it has the picture of a computer beside it. 
      • Otherwise select the arrow beside the save button and select “Computer”

  1. This will prompt a “Preparing Download” box to show up on your screen. 

  1. Once it is done, the InterRAI will be in the “downloads” file of your computer. You’re free to move it into another folder or change the name at will. 

Downloading Adobe

Does not work with chromebooks

Use this Adobe link to go to the proper download

  1. Select “Download Acrobat Reader” 
    • It is a free download. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC costs a monthly subscription.
    • You don’t need the additional Optional offers, so you can unselect those.

  1. Follow your computer’s instructions for downloading and installing.
