We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Adobe Acrobat could not open 'JB_PTA_One80_ApplicationFrom.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
To create an Adobe PDF document, go to the source application. Then choose Save as Adobe PDF from the PDF dropdown in the Print dialog.
How did you get the file? Were you able to open it in the past?
Try dragging it into a plain-text editor (like Notepad). What does the first line of text in it looks like?
Thank you for your reply. This is what the text looks like:

That seems in order. Can you share the file with us?
It opens just fine for me, but the fields in it are empty.
Yes it is a form I need to fill in, so the field should be empty. Everything was working fine until I ran my update yesterday... I can open certain pdf files but not others...
It opens fine on my iPad, just not on my MacBook Pro
I tried to open the PDF and it opens just fine for me too.
Could you please confirm me what is the OS version on your Mac ?
Also Can you Please try to Uninstall and Reinstall Acrobat and see if the file opens fine for you then ?
