I just purchased the MM bundle and I'm trying to load it on my ipad. The download came as a zip file, but when I unzipped it, the pdf is too large for me to email to myself to open on the ipad. I don't know what to do now. I purchased it at kagi if that matters, I got the free MM downlaod from the other website and it came as a PDF and I had no problems getting it on my ipad.

Is your computer not a Mac? I import PDFs into iTunes and then add the file to my iPad through there

You should be able to use DropBox, iCloud, Google Drive, or the like as an intermediary step.

I use Notability for it.
There was some kind of glitch with it at first, can't remember the details though. Search the boards because that's how I found out how to fix it.

I emailed it to myself but just the individual files I needed. The size was no issue.

We use MM on our iPad. Just upload Dropbox on your computer and your iPad and then put the MM file into the dropbox folder on your computer. Voila, it will appear in your dropbox folder on your iPad. We use Notability to write on it.

Yep, I used Notability and Dropbox. Turns out that DD does NOT like doing math on the iPad, but, hey, we tried.

We use MM, and DH just happened to show mw Notability. I tried them out together and it is very cool. I am pretty sure DS will like doing math this way. Thanks!

So glad I found this info! I've had the sample file and believe this will be a great way for DD to do worksheets for a change of pace. It worked me like Farrarwilliams said. Emailed the PDF file to myself and after installing notability I opened the PDF in my email and selected the option to send to notability.

For those that use Notability, how do you get it to bookmark? I read that it automatically goes back to the page you left off on. That hasn't been my experience. I have to scroll through tons of pages to get where I left off.

Thanks!

I just tried doing this tonight with my ipad and Notability, and noticed that many of the images are missing...is anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix? We'd really like to use it in a program or app that lets you write or type right on the pdf.
