Does anyone know if using tables in a doc will cause it not to display online when saved as a PDF?
It opens on the computer but not when I upload it to a website. Other pdf's are OK on site. The client wants it as a pdf. I have read all the troubleshooting stuff but not about to experiment with all my settings on account of one document not displaying correctly.
You might need to give some more information. Once saved as a PDF, a document is pretty bulletproof. Is the PDF meant to open via a link? If so, what happens when you click it? Are you sure the file path is OK?
Yes, I mean a pdf is a pdf - I've never had an issue with them before. The path is OK as the link opens as if it is going to work, but the result is an empty white box. The pdf opens, but it is blank. I can't see that it is any different to any other pdf except the word doc in question from which it came, is a text doc containing a table sent to me by the client. I put up the word doc instead so at least it is on the site but the client wants a pdf!
You can view all of the settings as you are creating the PDF (assuming you are doing it in Acrobat). But this is probably a red herring. I'm not that savvy regarding PDF creation, but a few times I didn't have fonts embedded and the receiving users didn't have that font on their own computer so saw different fonts. But I doubt that's an issue here. I'd say try the option to save the PDF for optimized web viewing (a much smaller file) and see if that helps. What is the size of the file? I've occasionally had problems with PDF display when the file was too large. (Mind you, I haven't done much with PDFs for years. I'm just throwing around suggestions here until someone who knows something steps in!)
