  • Compatibility issues with Adobe Acrobat

    I'm having an issue with some of the files I've either created or modified with Foxit Business PDF not opening with Adobe Acrobat. I get the following error message in Acrobat "There was error processing a page. There was a problem this document (18)." I can open the same files with no problem in Foxit but once I send them to other people - they are using Adobe and can't open the files. What can be done to fix this? Thanks.

      I am having the same issue. Lots of customers complaining some files don't open. They open fine on my computer with foxit. But my computer that only has adobe reader latest version says there is an error and can't repair. It is mostly with scanned files. Or if I select two jpeg and combine them into a pdf. Someone said it was to do with compression or something, where is the setting to turn off the compression. Or what other settings can cause this. They are very basic files.

          Hi Lisa,

          I have already uploaded the PDF. I already said I have used the the semi recent version of Foxit and I also tried the latest version of foxit and a version that seems to be beta or something?

          As I already said I did try with semi recent version of Adobe Reader when that did not work I updated to the very latest version. 20053. The error message is "There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired."

          It is mostly word documents being converted not specifically image files. I really couldn't wait I think I will drop Foxit. I went and purchased another company's software and that is working fine for everything. I would like to get this resolved as my employees prefer foxit.

          I don't have access to the original files right now. Is that enough information to find the problem?
