Hey there, Thanks for reporting the concern.This issue occurred with the earlier version of Acrobat DC. With the latest version, there isn't such issue reported so far. We'd see if its a latest patch that's causing trouble, or a problem with the existing file. 1- The document you are working with, is it a scanned document or contain text and images both?

Hey there,

 

Thanks for reporting the concern.This issue occurred with the earlier version of Acrobat DC. With the latest version, there isn't such issue reported so far.

We'd see if its a latest patch that's causing trouble, or a problem with the existing file.

1- The document you are working with, is it a scanned document or contain text and images both? Any other PDF that returns the same error?

2- We have an option update available for Acrobat DC. You may install it from within Acrobat itself. Open Acrobat>Help>Check for update> Reboot Acrobat or refer to this release note: https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/index.html

3- If its a specific document, then Navigate to Acrobat>Edit>Preferences>Security (Enhanced)>disable "Protected View"and "Enhanced Security">OK>Reboot Acrobat
Note: these changes are only for testing purpose. Once tested, please change it back to the previous setting. 

4- In next step Open Acrobat>Help>Repair Installation>reboot Acrobat DC

 

Let us know if this makes a difference.

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Hi Akanchha, 

 

I followed your instructions but the document is still throwing the error. 

 

Its a print out of a receipt, with text and images. 

 

Thanks,
SMT

So gave all the following steps a try and the issues seems to persist. This time the employee left open the PDF overnight and when they woke their computer from sleep the error message was up on their computer. Is there any further advice that can be provided?

Hi All,

 

sorry to keep you waiting. 

Is it possible for any one or all of you to share a few sample files with us? We'd like to work on them at our end to see the result.

You ca upload the file on Document Cloud and share the link with us. 

Along with that, you may share these details too-

  • Acrobat exact version
  • OS version
  • At what action it displays the error

I have the exact same issue, it happens constantly even if I have my desktop app for say an hour or more.  I get that same error message and half of the PDF is blank.  I have to restart and I do this daily.  HELP.

If these are files on a server, this is kind of expected.

Why is that expected? Who in 2020 operates entirely off of local copies? Is there anything that can be done for files located on either local servers or services like One Drive?

I'm having this same problem on a daily basis, but there are no updates available according to Acrobat.

I am having the same problem. It started after my CC subscription renewed in January 2021. It is not the PDF, it is not my computer, it is not my OS. I've tried all of the "solutions" from all of the forums and "communities" where this problem has been reported. I consider this Adobe forcing us to pay for a defective product. Please fix it.

 

P.S. It also happened in Illustrator 2021. So... there's that.
