We are currently experiencing issues with links on the TRICARE Manuals web site. The most recent patches of Adobe Acrobat/Reader XI (11.0.11) and Acrobat X (10.1.14) has changed the behavior of Acrobat. The “links” inside of the TRICARE Manuals PDF files will not work correctly if these patches are applied to Adobe Acrobat. The “Entire Manual at Change XX” button for each manual has been removed, at this time. You can use the “Table of Contents at Change XX” button to taken to a web page where you select any section of a Manual and view it directly. In all cases “links” inside of a Manual file will not work with these versions of Acrobat.
