1) TIFF to PDF conversion!
We recently completed a project to replace our Java plug-in dependent image viewer. We now show our images in Portable Document Format (PDF). This converts our images from TIFF to the open ISO Standard for document archiving called PDF/A. This will help insure our images will be readable for decades to come. Our web site uses the PDF viewer set up in your web browser. Our images are now available in most browsers, including Google Chrome. Mobile devices that are able to view PDF files can now view images from our web site. The viewing and printing functionality your browser already provided in your PDF viewer can now be used with images from our web site. For example, in Adobe Acrobat Reader you can turn thumbnails on and off. You have access to Page Display tools, Page Navigation tools, Select and Zoom tools.
2) Windows XP - Issue viewing PDF files
Internet Explorer web browser running on Windows XP will not allow PDF files to display.
The fix is to use the Google Chrome web browser to view PDF files on our web site.
3) Receipt Number/Invoice Number Search Information
When an overpayment is made to the Recorder’s Office while recording documents through the mail, the Auditor’s Office will send out a refund check. The Auditor uses the Recorder’s Office receipt number as their invoice number on the check. If you know the Recorder’s Office receipt number or the Auditor’s Office Invoice number, enter it into the text box on the Unregistered Land Receipt/Invoice Number Search screen.
