The-Green-Twist-Machine PDF is Damaged Answered

The-Green-Twist-Machine PDF cannot be downloaded. The download stalls and a message appears stating that the file is damaged. I used both Firefox and Internet Explorer to try to download the file and neither will complete the task. Both browsers are successful at downloading other "Instructables" PDF's , however.

I just realized that my last reply wasn't complete. I should also say that even if I start the download from a freshly opened browser the result is the same: "The file is damaged and could not be repaired" s.

From Firefox, Adobe Reader still reports "The file is damaged and could not be repaired". s

Can you send me the url for the version of pdf you're getting this error? Also, make sure you clear your browser cache, otherwise you might be seeing your older corrupted version. thanks.

The url is "https://www.instructables.com/pdf/The-Green-Twist-Machine/The-Green-Twist-Machine.pdf".

As far as I know, my browser is set to clear its cache each time it's closed.

Odd. I just tried it and it downloaded just fine. Are you making any changes to it or are you downloading the default pdf?

I've tried downloading both the default PDF and the custom PDF. Neither will download. s
