  • Why can't I open PDFs anymore and Adobe Reader won't install? This happens only in Safari. I have tried changing my security preferences but it doesn't help.

    missyzz,
    which version of OS X is installed on your Mac, and which version of Adobe Reader do you have installed? Did you ensure that all of your browsers were not running when you’d installed Adobe Reader?
    To use Preview to open PDFs, download the PDFs to your Mac, and then use Preview to open the PDFs locally. Since you can open PDFs in Firefox, it sounds like you don’t need the Preview workaround.

  • Hi,
    I hope you can help, this is driving me nuts.
    I have a PDF Form which opens fine in Windows Adobe Reader, when I attempt to open it on OS X I get the following:
    Please wait..
    If this message is not eventually replaced by the proper contents of the document, your PDF viewer may not be able to display this type of document.
    You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader for Windows®, Mac, or Linux® by visiting http://www.adobe.com/go/reader_download.

Mac is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the United States and other countries. Linux is the registered trademark of Linus Torvalds in the U.S. and other countries.
    No matter how long I wait it will not replace this text with the actual form. I have tried installing the latest 10.x as well and still have the same problem.
    How can I debug what is going on rather than just 'waiting'..?
    Thanks!

    I'm encountering the same problem on the two computers below. Email attachments will open in the same manner. Attempts to download or open PDFs on the Internet result in a black page with no content or the warning you've noted above.
    Macbook pro 15 running 10.8.4
    Mac Mini running 10.8.4
    I am able to open PDFs on a Mac pro 17 running 10.7.5. I have used airdrop to move the document to one of the above two computers. This results in the original file becoming corrupted and unable to open and the file moved to the other computer will also state that it is corrupted.
    There is clearly something amiss in Adobe and Mac working together. (And it is causing considerable frustration at this point.)
    I should add, I have the full Adobe PDF product on the Mac Mini.

  • Hi,
    I am having trouble opening a pdf document in Adobe Reader on iPad.
    All software is up to date.
    I created the interactive document in InDesign CS6.
    Due to the fact that InDesign cannot export directly to PDF when you want to keep certain functions such as 'Go to page', I used the workaround of exporting to .swf file, loading this in Adobe Acrobat Pro, and exporting as PDF from there.
    The PDF is fully functional and works perfectly on Mac and PC.
    I added the Adobe Reader app to iPad.
    I opened the iPad in iTunes on the Mac, went to the Adobe Reader app, and added the PDF.
    The PDF shows up in Adobe Reader on the iPad.
    Upon opening the PDF, only the first page shows, and none of the buttons work. The file size is correct and so the whole file 'should' be showing.
    Whats going wrong?
    Does Adobe Reader for iOS allow interactive PDFs?
    Also, on a side note, I tried first adding the PDF's using Dropbox, but the 'share' icon in the Dropbox App did not update to include 'Adobe Reader' as an option, having installed Adobe Reader App. It should be there, shouldn't it?
    Hope you can help!
    Thanks,
    Zeen

    Thanks Steve, but I had tried GoodReader earlier and that made no difference. This led me to think that it was something to do with what functions I was trying to have in my interactive file rather than limitations of a PDF reader App.
    It is a bit disappointing, however, that Adobe's own app doesn't support interactive PDFs!
    What I have now done is using InDesign CS6 Folio Builder panel and DPS to convert my interactive document into a .folio. I signed up to acrobat.com and then I was able to upload the .folio to my DPS cloud. On the iPad, I downloaded Adobe Content Viewer (care when searching the app store it's actually called Adobe® Content Viewer). Next I opened the App and it did a sync with my DPS cloud and now the PDF works with full interactivity on my iPad.
    It was free to publish a personal-use .folio using the DPS Folio Producer. ^_^
    I think that I might have been better from the outset creating my document in InDesign, then exporting as high quality print PDF to Acrobat to add buttons and functionality (instead of creating the buttons etc. in InDesign itself), then I have a feeling GoodReader would have been able to read that PDF fine. Regardless, today I created my first working .folio file and have learned a new skill in Adobe =]
    The only problem I'm now having is that some of the images in the .folio are poor quality (I think ones that were link files to the original InDesign CS6 document), however this is not for this forum.
    I wonder if anyone else has been trying to do the same as me. What was your method, if successful?
    Ciao,

  • I am trying to change the settings of 400+ Windows 7 PCs with 2-10 users per PC. They all use Firefox and Adobe Reader XI. I would like to know how to use the Mozilla Administrative Template or how to create a GPO to change the default pdf viewer in Firefox to Reader XI. i need a way to be able to configure it so when a user logs into the PC via our domain login Firefox will be automatically configured to open PDF's from Firefox in an Adobe Reader window, otherwise we have to manually configure it and that gets very frustrating after the 2nd PC

  • I was offered the option to Open Files With and somehow I chose adobe reader.. Now all my shortucts and programs have a .lnk extension and I cannot open them.
    How can I undo and rever to the default?

    Michael, thanks for the link.
    First let me mention that I uninstalled adobe reader and everything went back to normal except - of course - I couldn't open a .pdf file which was not good.
    I reinstalled adobe reader hoping that the new install will come clean but once done I was back with the problem.
    The link you sent me lists several solutions one of which is to perform a registry fix which I wouldn't attempt because - as it mentions - I could end up with more serious issues.
    Another solution it mentions is to set the default program to a web browser, email client.. etc. This is simple to do but could you please explain to me what this will do? Let's say I set the default program to internet explorer. Will it stay as the default program forever? Will it open a word document, or corel draw for example?
    Thanks again,

  • Hi
    Previously, I thought that having Adobe reader 5 or up is enought to be able to open PDF portfolio's created in Adobe acrobat X, though on a differing level of view depending on the Adobe reader version.
    My Problem is, I tried to open a PDF portfolio, I have Adobe Reader X and it came up with an error.
    Newbie question, So, to view portfolios or any PDF's with flash etc, the ussual Reader would no longer suffice?
    Regards
    Jani

    Thanks for the replies. Dave, thanks for the really helpful link.
    The problem that this has created is for some guys who are previously sending reports (multiple pdf's/portfolio) to their clients in a hassle free way since it only requires the client (recipient) to have Adobe Reader installed. Now it requires another program as it was sort of separated from the Reader family. Previously, instead of having the ussual coversheet for the PDF portfolio to include that it is best to view on the latest version of Adobe Reader or Acrobat, will now need to include the latest version of Flash player as well.
    I have not tested yet, though probably on another topic, but does this also affect if you are planning to open a PDF created in Indesign and given the format of 'page flip'?
    Dave, do you have any tips on a possible workaround or atleast creating a pdf portfolio or any PDF document with SWF/flash capability to be user friendly or less hassle for a recipient to open?
    I am really sorry if I have a lot of questions =(

  • I am trying to download Adobe Reader. I have already downloaded and installed it. I have completed all the steps. However, when I try to open a pdf, it says that I need to launch Adobe Reader and accept the End User License agreement then quit and relaunch the browser. When the installation completed, it did not give me the option to do it. How do I fix this?

    You need to do what it says. If you are on Windows (pre-8.0) go to Start>All programs, find Reader and launch it. If on a Mac, go to Applications, find Reader and launch it.

  • Dear all,
    Firefox seems unable to use adobe reader to display pdf's. I've set Firefox to use adobe reader and I've set adobe reader to accept use within a browser.

  • I can't open PDFs, can't uninstall program, I have Adobe Reader (11.0.08) MUI (I don't know what MUI is..), help! I have tried numerous times to uninstall and change the program. Every time I try to do this, a window comes up saying that files are open (Adobe Reader) and to either retry or close. I can do neither, so I'm unable to uninstall the program. I've never had anything like this happen to me. I scanned my computer for viruses, malware, etc. and nothing came up. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I just try to download the software from the Adobe site and see what happens?
    Thanks, Tracy

    Assuming you are in Windows (which you haven't said), you can try using this tool to first remove all traces of Reader from your computer:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html
    Then, you can download the full offline Reader installer from
    http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/
    After downloading, restart your computer and run the installer before doing anything else.
    And I think it is Multilanguage User Interface..

  • I've seen this question asked a few times on the Forums, but I haven't seen an answer.
    I received a PDF portfolio, but I can't open it on my Mac (OSX 10.10.2) using Adobe Reader 11.0.10. When I try to open it, I get the message, 'For the best experience, open this PDF portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9, or later.' I've tried both Adobe Reader and Acrobat (also 11.0.10) but I keep getting the same message in both. I heard that this can sometimes be a problem caused by Flash, but I am running version 16.0.0.296 of that. I tried updating both Adobe Reader and Flash Player just in case I didn't have the latest version for some reason, but I still can't open the file. Is there anything else that I should do to get it to open correctly?

    Hi Zak ,
    In order to view PDF Portfolio content, you need to have Flash Player installed on your system.
    You might have been prompted to use Flash Player to view the same.
    Have you installed Adobe Flash Player on your system? You can install it from the link mentioned below:
    Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions
    Let us know.
