Evening.

 

I've been sent a .PDF which when opens requires me to accept the terms & conditions of opening the document. At the bottom, there is an I accept button which after accepting is supposed to open the document.

 

On my Chromebook, I have downloaded Adobe acrobat reader and when I click on the I accept, nothing happens.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this? It works fine on my colleagues Windows device.

Hi @Dean281379100rga,

 

Hope you are doing well. Sorry for your experience with Acrobat Reader Mobile.

 

Would you mind sharing a few pieces of information for further investigation:

1. The application version of Acrobat Reader Mobile you have installed;

2. A screen recording of what happens when you accept the conditions;

3. The file ( on private message if sensitive) so we can try to reproduce it and get back to you with a resolution.

 

While you do so, would you mind trying to open the file on the web portal: https://acrobat.adobe.com/link/documents/ 

 

Look forward to hearing from you.

 

-Souvik.

Good morning Souvik.

The version I have installed on my Chromebook is 22.12.1.25269. I am happy
to arrange a call and share on screen what happens, I will have a go at
recording this process for you. I can not share the document as this is a
confidential third party SOC2 report.

If you let me know a good time for you, happy to arrange a call to show you
what I'm doing and the outcome. I understand the same document is working
fine on a Windows device.

Kind regard

Dean

Hi @Dean281379100rga,

 

Thank you for the response. Please let me know if the email address registered on the community boards is the preferred mode of communication.

 

If yes, I'll be sharing an email on the same address and we can discuss the particulars there.

 

Look forward to hearing from you.

I thought I'd replied Souvik but I can't see one on here and I've not heard back. Yes, the email address on my account is the correct one to reply to.

I doubt the mobile Reader will work for this. You probably need Mac or Windows Reader.

I have a ChromeBook and wouldn't think the Windows or Mac versions would work on that.

You are right. You would also need a Windows or Mac computer. There's a lot of things that can't be done on a Chromebook (or phone). I don't say this was a good choice by the maker of the form - you can check with them if they have a way to use it on Android/Chromebook.
