This document's page tree contains an invalid node

May 29, 2012 1:28 PM

We have some PDFs that our users add pages and bookmarks to from time to time.

 

In one of them, once we go to bookmark no. 61 I receive the error message "This document's page tree contains an invalid node."  I receive that same message for every bookmark after No. 61

 

I can delete the bookmarks but still can't access the pages.  If I try to navigate by paging down through the PDF only a small thumbnail of those pages displays.

 

When I try to delete the affected pages, I receive the error message, "Expected a dict object"

 

I've tried extracting only the pages above where the "problem bookmarks" begin.  Unfortunately, I receive the error "this document's page tree contains an invalid node" when I try to do so.

 

Any ideas how I can resolve this issue?  I appreciate any help or ideas on this matter.

 

Thanks.

    The document has become corrupt. If you cannot reassemble the document from its original sources and no version of the file is available from a back up, then you can try to print the pdf file to the virtual Acrobat Printer to create a new version of the file. This won't be of the same quality as the original, but it might be acceptable.

    I received the same "This document's page tree contains an invalid node." error.  I saved as to a different location on my hard drive using the same file name and Acrobat didn't have a problem anymore just using the new file.  The error would initiate when I used Foxit Editor to delete some pages of a pdf.

    I do not understand why Adobe PDFs are so flakey.  I produce a weekly newsletter at work.

    To make it searchable I PDF it using Adobe Acrobat X Pro and insert it into a PDF for the 2013 issues.  Apart from inserting each issue I create a bookmark and set destination.  That is all I do and yet the PDFs keep corrupting.  I keep getting the message "The document's page tree contains an invalid node".  ( I view it with Adobe Reader X).  In desperation I created a new PDF and populated it with the weekly issues. This worked for a little while, but now the error has come up again.  Is no one in the Adobe technical side looking to see what is causing this bug?

    Have you reported it to Adobe so they know about it?

    By the way, are you able to publicly share a file which gives this error?

    From which file format are you generating the PDFs?
