Pdf not displayed correctly in preview

We have a new A) scanner (colortrac Ci40) and when we scan a pdf it is displayed in preview as if it is all wrinkled up.
Only in prewiew and if imorted in vectorworks. (on both OSX 10.5 and 10.6)
The same problem appears on a iPad.
It is not displayed correctly.
In all other programms I tried it is displayed properly.
We also have a small a4/a3 scanner from konica minolta and these scans display corectly in preview.
Is this only a preview problem and should I ignore it?

Hi there,
I have a very similar problem: a number of pdf files that I can see perfectly well in Safari/GoogleChrome do NOT show correctly in Preview or ANY iPad app I have (Notability, Adobe, PDF Expertm iAnnotate, Dropbox etc.).
The problem is that punctuation -- with the expection of periods or bolded text -- does not show properly. For example, commas and quotation marks to not show, and some numbers to not show.
Moreover, once I have annotated/viewed the problematic file on the IPad and resync to dropbox to view on Mac vis Adobe (which I do with most pdf files with no problems), I get an error message upon reopening the pdf file saying "Cannot extract the embedded font 'FAFWQV+--unknown-2--'. Some characters may not display or print correctly." (the 'quoted' text changes each time). When opening in Preview, no error message appears, though the fole is still lacking punctuation etc.
Here is a link to one problematic pdf:http://niis.cass.cn/upload/2012/12/d20121201200145301.pdf
NB: the file is in Mandarin, however I can successfully open/edit/annotate/sync other pdfs using Mandarin font so I'm not sure if the language is related to the problem.
I would be extremely grateful for some help with this please!

  • Subreport totals are not displayed correctly in Preview

    I'm using Crystal Reports 2008.  I have a subreport that sorts hiearchically.  It is placed in the Report Header of the main report.  Within the subreport, it has calculated totals for each hiearchy grouping.  When ran, those totals are incorrectly displayed in the Preview;  however, when I click on the subreport, those totals are displayed correctly in the preview of the subreport.  Also,  if I go to the subreport design, pretending I'm editing the subreport, then go back to the main report preview, those totals are correct.
    Has anyone experienced this issue?  Please provide help/advise.  Thanks.

    Shwu, The subreport does not process any value based on the main report. I also observed that if the group extends to next page, the totals are incorrectly displayed.  I have both 'Keep Group Together' and section 'Keep Together' selected, but still the data extends to next page.  The subreport is sorted with 'Hierarchical Grouping'.  For example, below 2 lines are printed at bottom of a page:
    North America
        Sales department
    then Crystal prints the rest of departments belong to North America onto next page as:
    I was hoping if I could get Crystal to not print the group if there's not enough space on the page, but rather print on next new page, the incorrect totals would go away.  Any idea how I would do page break for hierarchical groupings?

  • PDF not displaying correctly when opening in Firefox

    I have created a document in Powerpoint 97-03, with hyperlinks created using shapes, on a Win. 7 PC and then converted it to a PDF. It has then be uploaded onto the internet and it displays fine on a Windows PC.
    One of my colleagues has viewed it on their mac with Firefox and found that the contents of the PDF have shifted to the right so that part of the document is off of the page, though the hyperlinks have stayed where they should.
    I have installed Adobe Reader XI onto the mac in the hopes that this may resolve it but alas no luck. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this issue and whether there was any fix at all?

    Can you please post the link to the PDF in question?<br>
    Does this occur in all PDFs?
    In order to change the default reader for PDF files (to not open PDF files with Firefox's internal PDF reader), follow these steps:
    #Go to ''Tools'' > ''Options'' (or ''Firefox'' > ''Options'').
    #In the Options window, select the ''Applications'' tab.
    #In the ''Search'' field, type ''PDF''. You should find ''Portable Document Format (PDF)''.
    #On the right handside you should find an ''Action'' column. Use that to select your favorite PDF reader. In order to view PDF files in Firefox, choose ''Preview in Firefox''.

  • Mail with image and PDF not displaying correctly on Outlook

    Environment and problem
    OS X Mountain Lion, Mail 6.1 (everything up to date)
    Emails with mixed image and PDF attachments send from my MacBoox Pro are not being displayed correctly when received on Outlook. It is not an Outlook problem.
    Multiple inline images - ok
    I compose an email, rich text format, insert severnal inline images, send to colleage on Windows 7 using Outlook, all received ok. He sees the message with inline images.
    Multiple inline images and PDF - not ok
    I compose a similar email with multiple inline images, but attach a PDF. This time all of the attachments (images and PDF) appear at the end of the message when viewed in Outlook.
    Gmail browser comparison
    I repeat the above from a Gmail account via Safari and I can make an email with inline images and PDF attachments and it works.
    Any thoughts, tips, bug reports, etc appreciated.

    No - can't be an Apple fan and then critisise MS for being proprietry
    My problem was solved by installing Attachment Tamer.
    It could also have been solved by emailing from Gmail directly.
    The guys I work with use Outlook and were suprised to see this behaviour.
    It's only basic OS X email that has a problem.
    I wholeheartedly agree that the standard for emails are not conducive for rich layout control.
    But - when my email just has images I had no problems. Take for example the email notifications we're getting from this thread - there are images and layout etc and work fine.
    The key feature from Attachment Tamer hints at the problem (and its solution):
    send images embedded in HTML layout and safely mix embedded images with other attachments;

  • PDF colors not displaying correctly in preview

    Forgive me if someone has answered this. I've searched the forums for about 30 min and cannot find anything.
    When opening certain pdf files in preview, some of the photographs have messed up colors. It looks as though they are negatives of what they should be. I can open them in Adobe Acrobat and they look fine, but would much rather use Preview. Does this have to do with a setting when the pdf files are made? Is there any way to fix it?
    I think I've described the problem enough, but below is a picture to help explain. The below picture is supposed to be a black arm sleeve with white and yellow letters. In this instance, the rest of the pictures on the document are fine, just a few of them were like this.

  • PDF not displaying correctly online

    I have created a PDF in Acrobat Pro 9 that when opened (wherever and by whomever) will show in spreads, in Acrobat.  Working great.  However when I link to this PDF, on my website, it opens in a new browser window as it should, but displays as single pages.  I cannot for the life of me figure out why, or how to fix.
    The offenders can be viewed at hooladesign.com - there are two instances under "Portfolio" / "Misc. Client Work" - the first is in "Franklin + Gower" and the other in "Zock".  Both PDFs should be showing as spreads, but are not.
    Any fix to this issue?  I don't want the user to have to open the PDF on their computer.  The idea is to make it easy for them.
    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    For both PDFs, the first page shows as a single page, but the subsequent pages show as two-page spreads. This is on Windows XP, Firefox, and Acrobat Pro 9.3.4. I can test on a Mac later.

  • Paycheck Pdf not displaying correctly

    Hi All,
    We have an issue while displaying the Paycheck Inquiry pdf in ESS portal.The pdf gets generated with overlapping text and the main problem is that it happens for only one user. We have asked him to check in another system but he faces the same issue there as well.
    I dont think the code is an issue since its working fine for all other users. Can anybody guide me on this?
    Thanks in advance,

    adobe reader version? authorisation can be checked and of course browser version

  • PDF's in Mail and Preview not displaying correctly

    Ever since upgrading to Yosemite PDF's are not displaying correctly. Every time i generate a PDF of a sales quote it seems to lose a lot of information.
    But the strange thing is.....
    Preview and Mail both show PDF with missing text.
    When I open using "Quick Look Attachment" within Mail or Adobe Acrobat it looks perfect.
    When emailed, recipients (mostly Windows users) seem to have no problem opening it and seeing all text.
    So far seen that issue is only in Preview and Mail
    Only has happened since upgrading to Yosemite
    PDF is created using web based ZOHO CRM to build quotes.
    See image below to see the difference in what Mail and Preview sees compared with how other apps open the same PDF.
    NOTE: sensitive info has been purposely blurred on image.

    Do a backup, using either Time Machine or a cloning program, to ensure files/data can be recovered. Two backups are better than one. 
    Try setting up another admin user account to see if the same problem continues. If Back-to-My Mac is selected in System Preferences, the Guest account will not work. The intent is to see if it is specific to one account or a system wide problem. This account can be deleted later.
    Isolating an issue by using another user account
    Try booting into the Safe Mode using your normal account.  Disconnect all peripherals except those needed for the test. Shut down the computer and then power it back up after waiting 10 seconds. Immediately after hearing the startup chime, hold down the shift key and continue to hold it until the gray Apple icon and a progress bar appear and again when you log in. The boot up is significantly slower than normal. This will reset some caches, forces a directory check, and disables all startup and login items, among other things. When you reboot normally, the initial reboot may be slower than normal. If the system operates normally, there may be 3rd party applications which are causing a problem. Try deleting/disabling the third party applications after a restart by using the application un-installer. For each disable/delete, you will need to restart if you don’t do them all at once.

  • When I open a pdf in Adobe Acrobat xi pro it is not displaying correctly. If a file is all black with orange writing, I will see only the orange writing. Its not until i print it or open crop pages dialog box that i see the background. i am on a Windows 7

    When I open a pdf in Adobe Acrobat xi pro it is not displaying correctly. If a file is all black with orange writing, I will see only the orange writing. Its not until i print it or open crop pages dialog box that i see the background.
    i am on a Windows 7 professional PC, 64-bit.

    If anyone is reading this still looking for what caused the issue and how to fix it here is what I discovered.
    The antivirus program our company uses, Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, was causing some of the PDF files not to open. After troubleshooting the different modules and settings the culprit was..
    Scan SSL in Privacy Control Settings. Turning it OFF solved the problem and all the PDF files that previously would not open now open just fine. This issue has been sent to Bitdefender for them to review. If you use a different antivirus program and are having this issue try locating the Scan SSL setting and see if turning it off solves the problem.

  • Links do not display correctly in my pdf

    www and http are not displaying in pdf files converted from MS Word
    When I convert a Word document to pdf using Acrobat Pro 9.0, the website addresses do not display correctly. For instance, if my document shows www.website.com - then the pdf only displays .website.com. Also, if I have the http://www.website.com - I get ://www.website.com. Please HELP! I remember having this problem when I used the trial version of Acrobat 9.0, at the time, I just removed the link & the document converted fine. For this file, I REALLY need the links to be active.
    For now, I have resorted to using a pdfmaker that costs about $5 on e-bay. It works just fine - why doesn't my Adobe Acrobat work?

    PDF maker is the part of AA9 Pro that converts the links for you. You did not say how you are creating the PDFs, but you have to use PDF Maker (the create PDF button in WORD) to get the links correct, or add them manually in Acrobat.
    I have no idea what PDF Maker you are talking about for $5 a day, since it is part of your package and is thus no additional cost. If you are printing to the Adobe PDF printer, you are not using PDF Maker.

  • Colors in pdf files not displayed correctly on linux acroread

    I have recently observed that the colors in certain pdf files are not displayed correctly in acroread on Linux. Other readers such as evince get it right. Examples are a presentation with white arrows on  a black background which come out as black on black. I suspect, but have not proved, that the files were produced on Mac OS. I see this in acroread version 9.5.1 on a couple of versions of Linux. I googled this but could find no-one else mentioning it. Has anyone else seen it. Looks like a serious bug to me.

    Does this happen with other PDFs on the server? You might check out the Adobe forums.

  • PDF files not displaying correctly

    I have adobe reader 8 and my operating system is Vista. Every time I try to view a PDF file my screen gets messed up. My color quality goes from Highest 32 bit color to the lowest setting. I then either have to reboot my system, or go into my NVIDIA display properties and reset to to highest 32 bit color quality. my resolution is 1440x900. Why are my PDFS not displaying , and my color quality keep going to lowest, every time i use PDF?? .I

    When I try to initiate Adobe Reader 8.1 in vista the window opens then immediately closes. Also when I try to open any PDF file the system locks up and I have to close whatever program is running from Task Manager. I have uninstalled old versions and reinstalled Adboe Reader three times with no error messages and no problems. I'm the system administrator so this should not be an issue. Help!!

  • Eurosign not displayed correctly when picked from database

    Hi ..
    I'm having a problem getting a eurosign stored in an Oracle Database to be displayed correctly in my Crystal Reports 11.5.
    When using the built in (preview) Crystal Viewer, the eurosign is displayed correctly, but when I want to print the report directly to a printer or to export it to pdf the eurosign is displayed as a box?
    It only haapens when i need to pick the eurosign from the database. If I insert in a textbox on the report, it will show correctly.
    Please Help.
    Best regards,

    What is the source of the text stored in the database. I ran into an issue a ways back where someone was copying news articles from a website into their database and the euro symbol would not display correctly (unless the option HTML Text Interpretation was used).
    You might want to do a quick check to see if it is stored as an ascii character using a formula similar to the following;
    asc(mid({database, x, 1}))
    where x = the position of the euro symbol in the string.
    The formula result should be 128.
