So Adobe Acrobat has this fatal PDF error for years but found no way to fix it?

 

Adobe Reader cannot open a PDF page that is longer than 200in in length. That's just bad. Adobe, please fix this basic error.

JR Boulay,

Sounds good. How to get rid of this error then? I'm using Adobe Reader DC version 2021.007.20099

It is not a error. It is a restriction.

200 x 200 inches is Distiller’s limit for PostScrip, it’s based on the Windows printer driver limitation.

 

The maximum page size is 15 million inches, this is from the PDF Reference 1.6:

 

In PDF versions earlier than PDF 1.6, the size of the default user space unit is fixed at 172 inch. In Acrobat viewers earlier than version 4.0, the minimum allowed page size is 72 by 72 units in default user space (1 by 1 inch); the maximum is 3240 by 3240 units (45 by 45 inches). In Acrobat versions 5.0 and later, the minimum allowed page size is 3 by 3 units (approximately 0.04 by 0.04 inch); the maximum is 14,400 by 14,400 units (200 by 200 inches).


Beginning with PDF 1.6, the size of the default user space unit may be set with the UserUnit entry of the page dictionary. Acrobat 7.0 supports a maximum UserUnit value of 75,000, which gives a maximum page dimension of 15,000,000 inches (14,400 * 75,000 * 172). The minimum UserUnit value is 1.0 (the default).

 

15,000,000 inches = 236,74 miles = 381 kilometers

You get rid of the error by avoiding making or using files over 200 inches on a side. This is a design restriction, and probably always will be.

Acrobat Reader can do nothing, this requires Acrobat Pro.

Acrobat Pro can do nothing about this ridiculous limitation. I have a large PDF I got from a client that I can see in Mac Preview but not in your own precious, buggy Adobe Acrobat. Why on earth are there any size limitations on vector based PDF's in this day and age? This isn't 1997, break out of your sad stupid limitations, Adobe.
