I have a PDF that I regularly edit a few fields then "save as" with a new name. Today I made the edits selected "save as" when I reopen the PDF the edits aren't there. The file name is the new name but none of my changes are saved. I am not getting an error messages when I do this. How can I resolve this?
Copy link to clipboard
If you cannot save a PDF file after editing , then it can happen due to either of the following reasons:
The PDF reader or editor that you are using might not be compatible with the document or any other process in the system.
At times, any existing or changed settings in the PDF application can also cause issues with key operations like editing or saving.
Chances are that any other application or process running on your Mac/Windows could have blocked the operation of the PDF file from getting saved. The problem can also happen if your system is running on an old or outdated firmware version.
Adobe Account Problem
Besides that, there might be an issue with the linked Adobe account in Acrobat reader. For instance, the linked account might not be active or have enough space to accommodate your file.
Besides that, if you can’t save a PDF file, then it can happen due to a damaged or corrupt document. Any other application or preset preferences in the tool can also trigger these incompatibility issues.
