Every document converted with Print2Flash is shown with a convenient user interface consisting of the toolbar and the document view area like on the picture below.
The toolbar lets you perform various operations with the document: enlarging, rotating. etc. You can click on any toolbar button or control on the previous picture to learn what it does and how to use it. Note that if you don't see all the buttons and controls shown on the picture above on your document toolbar, it means document creator disabled some buttons and you cannot perform operations accomplished by them.
Document interface is accessible to users with disabilities as well. See How to Make Use of Print2Flash Document Accessibility? to learn about this.
