I keep getting a dialogue box when opening a document to say "Content Preparation Progress" - "Please wait while document is being prepared for reading" which delays access to a document and is very annoying.

Can I turn this feature off?

Regards,

Walter

This helped.  I created my resume in MS Word and then converted it to a pdf file.  I initially had no trouble opening the file in pdf format.  However when I decided to insert a hyperlink to my LinkedIn profile in my resume in the MS Word file, which worked , this error only showed up after I converted it to pdf and then tried to open the pdf file.  It appears I can't have a hyperlink in an Adobe file unless I'm willing to upgrade my Adobe and start paying Adobe's outrageous monthly fee to upgrade for this privilege.

This fix does not resolve the issue for Mac users trying to use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.  Can you please help User Rick_Feldman and Myself with a resolution?  At the very least I want the message to go away.

 

Thanks,

Heath
