hello everyone,

I use my Ipad to read and edit documents. Recently, I updated the software to the latest version IOS version.

The problem is that ever time I use the reader, the app will prompt me by saying that the document was a “read only“ version and requires me to create a local copy. What’s worse is that after creating a local copy, the same problem arises after awhile

All these problems doesn’t exist before the update and I am Sure that the documents are not “read only version”. Appreciate any help here!

Hi jasondash​, domenb73821963​, trieste2​, cayleyc66155824​, bronsonc49638062​,

We just released Acrobat Reader 18.01.22 to the App Store.

This is the latest official release as of January 23.  Some of you have already installed the pre-release version that is identical to the one in the App Store.

Please give it a try and let us know if it works for you.

Thank you!

Hi jasondash​,

You have encountered a defect in Acrobat Reader 18.01.15.

Acrobat Reader displays the "Read-Only Document" alert and fails to save pending changes when you

  • switch to other apps
  • let your iPad/iPhone go to sleep

A short-term workaround for the problem is to tap the < (Back) button to close your PDF document to save changes before switching to other apps or letting your iPad/iPhone go to sleep.

We are actively working on a fix and trying to release a new update to the App Store as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Same problem. I will be in the middle of editing with the app for legal proceedings and my drawings and text boxes will vanish. I have to be able to toggle between iPad apps as I go without stopping.
