1.8.1. General Description

pdfscreen package helps to redesign the pdf output of your normal documents fit to be read in a computer monitor while retaining the freedom to format it for conventional printing. This has been brought about by redefining the margins and page height/width and related dimensions to fit into that of the computer screen. By changing the options to print you can switch the package to format the document in the conventional way as your class file dictates.

Users familiar with LaTeX will not have any difficulties in using this package.
