I recently completed a document, saved it, went back in the next day and every page is not legible with any of my text.  Most of the pages have "s" spaced out and you cannot read any of it.   What has happened here.

Hi Bennyj

 

Hope you are doing good and sorry to hear about your experience. As described, Most of the pages have "s" spaced out and you cannot read any of it.

 

- Would you mind sharing the workflow/steps you did to complete the PDF form?

 

- Is this a behavior with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check. If the file is stored on a shared network/drive please download it to your computer first and then open with Adobe Acrobat/Reader DC.

 

- What is the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version of the application go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the latest version (21.05.20048) installed. Go to Help > Check for Updates and reboot the computer once and check.

 

Regards

Amal
