Problems reading some pdf files in Playbook

Hi

I have downloaded some PDF bus timetables and maps from the website of our local operator but found some problems in opening a few of the files -strange error messages or just grey screens

 

However I have just found that the app qPDF opens the "problem" files successfully

 

So maybe there is a problem with the Playbook version of Adobe or perhaps a problem with the latest OS...???

 

But anyway qPDF has got me to where I wanted to be

 

Peter

Yes, everyone needs to buy or get a better pdf reader. I use one aptly named "pdf reader".  The bundled one is poor.

Re: Problems reading some pdf files in Playbook

I have had problems opening the same bus schedules Peter mentioned above. Most of the schedules on that companies routes open without problems with Adobe Reader.
I get an email notification of my cable bill. When I go to the website to open the Pdf bill, it only opens page 2 of the bill, page 1 is blank. Before the last update, my bill opened fully with Adobe Reader. I will be looking at qpgf
