|Step 2. Install CoPyCat into your web browser.|
- Close all of your web browser windows.
- The downloaded file is a disk image file. Mount the disk image file by double-clicking on its icon. A Finder window will
open to display the contents of the disk image, including the two plug-in files CoPyCatHarness and CoPyCat.plugin.
- Copy the two plug-in files (CoPyCatHarness and CoPyCat.plugin) from the disk image window to
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins. This will make the plug-in available to all users of the computer.
(Alternatively, you can copy the two plug-in files to
~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins. This will make the plug-in available to only the current user.)
- Restart your web browser.
That's it. The CoPyCat plug-in should now be installed.
On most web browsers, you can check that the plug-in is installed correctly using the browser's "Help/About Plug-Ins"
or "Help/Installed Plug-ins" command or by entering about:plugins into the browser's address box.
To further test the plug-in, visit our demonstration library.
CoPyCat uses your computer's PDF viewing
software to display the incoming CPC file. Unfortunately, MacOS X does not
come with a native PDF browser plug-in, and hence, is incapable of displaying PDF files directly in a
web browser window. This means that, by default, CoPyCat will display the CPC file in
a separate window using your standalone PDF viewing application
(typically Preview or Acrobat Reader).
|Optional Step: Install the PDF Browser Plug-in.|
If you prefer to have the file displayed directly in your web browser, you will need to install a PDF viewing plug-in.
PDF Browser plugin is a free PDF viewing plug-in available from
SchubertIt. Once you
install this plug-in, PDF files encountered by your
web browser, including those created by CoPyCat, will open directly in your web browser window.
