Hi,

 

When I try to open certain pdfs of mine, I get bombarded with Malformed SOM Expression warnings. There are so many that I cannot so anything with the pdf and can only click ok over and over again. Is there any way to disable these warnings?

This is an XFA form issue, different forum.

But, as a form user, there is nothing you can do about it except turn off JavaScript.  The only one who can fix the issue is the form developer. You need to contact them.

Thank you for the response! I tried turning JavaScript off in Preferences but the errors still appear. I'm not really interested in changing any of the specifications in the form. All I need to do is read it and add some text so I'm ok with just having the SOM stuff disabled

Then it is not JS that is the problem. It's the XFA calc script language, which cannot be turned off. 

If the form is not fixed by the developer, then it may not operate properly.
