PDF Errors
« on: August 07, 2014, 06:14:48 am »
I have created a 26 page magazine in Scribus which I have uploaded to my website as a pdf so that web visitors can download it.

When I attempt to download the pdf file and view it using Adobe Reader 9 it either won't open and displays a message that the file is damaged and cannot be repaired or does open but shows that the document only has 2 pages. Pages 1-13 become page 1 and pages 14-26 become page 2! It also downloads and opens very slowly.

The problem appears to occur when Scribus creates the pdf file.

I am using Ubuntu and Scribus 1.4.2.  I have created pdfs in Scribus before but never had this problem.

Do you have the same problem with the file BEFORE you upload it? It might have been damaged during the upload or download (for example anti-virus software may "filter" downloaded files).
