    djvu files are similar to adobe pdf files and I think there is a free viewer as well. But I've never liked the clarity of the djvu images...but that could have been the few files i tried it with. :)

    DjVu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I,
    may be there are other convert programs that works better, but I'm using the one you can find at the link mentioned in my previous post and it works fine.

    OK I thought you said it was a viewer. Thanks.

    Sorry, you are right, that program is a viewer, not a converter.
    I will appreciate also myself to find a good converter.

    No problem. There's got to be a good one out there somewhere.

    There is a way via the printer, once it's set up in the cache adobe can convert to PDF. Not exactly sure what the sequence is any more, been too long. Didn't have a printer back than either. Worth a try if you have Adobe available.

    Yes, of course!
    Printing as *.pdf is an option that should be available on any pc.
    Starting from the viewer mentioned above, I just did it on 234 pages document and it took, on my machine, less then five minutes.
    The issue could be that pdf docs are larger, in my case 18,600 KB instead of 3,600.
    Cheers
    Alberto

    I must amend what I said above, the size of pdf file, obtained by printing at full A4 page size is 46,600 KB, so more then ten times larger.

    You guys be very careful on any Russian websites, many are full of viruses, either intentionally or the website is hacked and the virus is added. You don't have to download anything to catch a virus, just going to a website can, you can pick up a virus before you even click on anything on that page. I do a lot of research on warbirds and have had this happen several times, even while using 3 antivirus programs, it still takes some work to repair the damage and make sure it's gone. The Russian Mafia is behind most of this and they love to steal American's credit card numbers. There is a addon to your internet browser by mcafee, called safe search that scans websites and looks for viruses, it wont let you open websites it has found to have viruses and also tells you if it's safe with a green checkmark, in the search engine results. It's a free download and I highly recommend it.

    Many thanks, it's a very useful advice.
    I have a Norton 360 anti-virus softer and I hope it does its duty...

    Like I said, I do a lot of research and years ago, I would only use 1 antivirus program but then I got burned a few times here and there. Even with running 3 or 4 at a time, I still pick something up about 3 or 4 times a year. None of the programs are perfect and so you can pick these up and not have any indication for months and it's too late. Just be careful guys and use extreme caution on russian sites, if your not really shart on computers, I would stay away from any site that ends in .ru. Take Care, Keith

    I'm new on this forum but I'm already amazed by the great information available! Thanks!

    I attach a PDF version of a Yak 1 manual (I believe it was only posted as DJVU file): it has some nice drawings that detail wood to metal assemblies (shame my Russian is inexistent).

    Cheers
