Are you saying that initially the text was visible and then later it wasn't? Note that some PDFs use long-deprecated fonts which are not supported in 1.0 (though we have added support for the upcoming 1.5 release). The most common source for these fonts (known as Type 1 Symbolics) is LaTex.
Yes initially the text was invisible and then after some starts of ADE the text wasn't visible anymore!!
At the moment I've just reinstalled WindowsXP system, downloaded the ebook again, but still the same problem :-(
Yes, this book (ebook) is "written" with Latex.
So, when is the new release coming up? Is there another thing I could do to fix my issue?
Thank you very much for your help!
I'm with the same problem. I bought a US$125 book last year at amazon.com and when I try to read it using the new "wonderful" flash digital edition in Mac OS X, all the text vanishes, only the pictures are present.
This book is not available anymore to download at amazon.com, so I cannot move it to another computer!
Ebooks never more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you have books that use Type 1 Symbolic fonts (which have been deprecated by Adobe for years), you can revert to Reader 7, which does support these fonts. But you will need to re-download any ebooks which you downloaded with Digital Editions. Alternatively, DE 1.5 will support such fonts.
I will contact Fab directly as their is something peculiar there. If the document is Type 1 Symbolic fonts, then it never would have been redendered.
If I use Acrobat Reader 7, an error message appears:
Your Adobe software could not be activated, Adobe DRM Activator error
(client code 32)
Fault localization: 5
Contact customer support.
I'm experiencing the same problem...no text is shown.
In my case, this is a "LaTex" book too.
As I have Vista installed, the workaround "revert to Reader 7" won't help.
Could you please provide a workaround which works with Vista too?
When will Digital Editions 1.5 be available?
You can install Reader 7 on Vista, you just need to fib and tell it that you are using Windows XP.
has this problem now been solved?
As far as I know this is not an issue in the new Digital Editions 1.5.
