Does it only happen with one certain docment or do all of them do this?
What version of Reader?
Doh! Shoulda mentioned that in the first place...
Version of reader is 9.3.0
And the answer to the first question is...?
And just checked a few different pdfs and they all do the same thing. I also checked that it wasn't some sort of folder permissions thing, pdfs copied to my desktop do it as well, so all pdfs do it, and I checked that the pdf files themselves are not read only. Not sure where reader saves this info, could it be that the info can't be saved, e.g. permissions issue with folders that reader is saving to, rather than changing the pdf file directly?
I noticed the same issue while reading a novel.So,posted a query and came across your disscussion.Some of my pdfs were doing fine but some were not.I compared the document properties of both the type.Limitations on a pdfs display depend on the producer.If you a viewing a pdf produced by adobe in Adobe reader then it'll work optimally.In case it's not working,then check out the producer and use a compatible reader.
e.g : My problematic pdf was created using Foxit .Fortunately I had the unused foxit software in my system for some time!I Installed it today and it worked like a charm.Easily available through google search and loads faster then adobe reader!
P.S. Looks like our queries have been resolved.But I would love to know of a way to open such files in adobe reader.(Thogh I dont think adobe will take responsibility for some me know alternative producer).So if you happen to find a resolution just let me know here : firstname.lastname@example.org
Simply save the problematic file as a PDF ( Ctrl + Shift + S). The newly saved PDF will work as you intended it to.
