I don't have an explanation for the first problem you are seeing, but the problem when trying to save could be related to Acrobat trying to access Adobe's online storage servers. Open up Acrobat's preferences, then go to the "General" category and turn off both "show online storage..." options. Does this change the behavior of the Save function?
Hello, Yes! that has resolved the 'Save' or 'Save As' function issue, with or without editing first.
What a relief that I can now at least use these two very important functions. Thanks so much.
I still have the flashing blue circle. I haven't a clue what this is all about! But thanks again for resolving the second problem.
Can you please describe what exactly happens when you try to edit. What edit functions are you using? Is this happening with all PDF files? If you need a new file to test with, you can download one from here: http://khkonsulting.com/files/Sample75Pages.pdf
