Most documents published on Scribd can be downloaded to your computer. Scribd can offer documents for download in their original format, as a PDF file, and as plain text. Members can choose which formats to make available for download, though, so specific formats may not be available for some documents, and some people choose to disable downloading of the documents they publish altogether.
Downloading a Document From Scribd.com
When you're viewing a document on Scribd, you can find the Download button just beneath its title. Remember, if the author has disabled downloads for that particular document, then the button will appear greyed out.
When you click Download, a box will appear in which you can select the format in which you'd like to download the document. Click the radio button under the format you'd like to download, then click the Download Now button. Remember, you'll need to have the appropriate software—such as Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Office—installed on your computer to view the file once you download it.
Downloading an Embedded Document
You can also download a document that has been embedded on another web site or blog. When you're viewing an embedded document, you can find the Download link just above the document, right next to the Scribd logo. If you'd like to see if the document is available in other formats, click the Scribd logo next to the Download link to open the document on Scribd.com, then follow the instructions above for downloading a document from Scribd.com.
There is a limit to the number of documents that you may download each day. This limit helps us to keep Scribd free for everyone, and varies based on your downloading habits and our available network resources. If you receive a notice that your download limit has been exceeded, please wait 24 hours and then try again.
