Whart happened to pdf download?
Posted by bill50 5 years ago
I'm having problems downloading PDF's. When I click PDF in the second link, the page opens on a new tab reloading the second link's page effectively looping. Since I have just 'upgraded' to Adobe ver 9.1I had wanted to know if this is a temporary site problem or just me.

I just added a pdf to my instrcuctable, but when I went to view it after I published it the pages were rotated and the quality very poor. I uploaded the same pdf to Google Drive and provided a link, and if you use that link the quality is fine and it is not rotated. Any suggestions? Step 2 of this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Numechron-digital-clock/

I just published my first Instructable. Actually I published it a couple weeks ago unfinished, and updated it as I went along. But I just got around to Downloading the PDF. And it is as the 'ible was when I first published it. Is there any way of updating it without unpublishing it, so I can stop looking like a newb?

Hi guys. I've noticed that the PDF version of the instructable does not update when I edit it. Here is an example: https://www.instructables.com/id/Pocket-Synth-Briefcase-V2/ when I click "Download", the PDF file contains content, that was published the first time. None of my edits are reflected in there. Pretty sure it's a server side problem, but just in case I'm using Chrome Version 61.0.3163.100 on MacOS 10.12.6.

My customer has recently encountered a problem when trying to open most of their pdfs that they have been referencing for years on their pc. Reader has a popup box that says "Adobe Reader could not open 'file.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded I have tried various programs to recover/restore/repair them, they all say the files aren't PDF files. I have not paid for any recovery programs but would be willing to if they can demonstrate they can fix the problem first.

This is getting annoying I just bought one year subscription two days ago. I am trying to download the PDF and it is not letting me download. Also when I go to different page each time it is asking me to login. And when I try to download the PDF it logs me out. It is also telling me to by new subscription, so please fix these problems. Other than that, in my account it says that I will be charged for new subscription after one year automatically. I would like to cancel automatic subscription option. I do like this site it is best online source for new projects but it is not well organized. For help, contact, account information and no Phone line were we can get customer service. So please reply me as soon as possible. My user name is patel.raj. If this problem going to be continued I would like to cancel my current subscription and want refund.

I have permission from Mirka Hokkanen, to download (www.instructables.com/id/Nifty-Car-Organizer). I subscribed to this Instructale site as it informed me I would be able to download all of the pattern and instructions at once and pics and text would follow in order rather than piece-meal after the download. I downloaded into Word and am trying to downsize pics and delete references to make fewer pages; however, with doing so things aren't staying together as promised. Please advise on how to do this. I do NOT have the full PDF loaded on my computer and prefer to use Word for downloads. Thanks. Omakam firstname.lastname@example.org

Change the pdf view and print format! Now when you click on the pdf icon (if you want the instrcucable to be viewed in pdf format) in the instructable you have selected, another page opens and you have to click on the pdf name to view/print in the pdf format. i suggest that when you click on the 1st view of the pdf icon, it immediately opens the pdf....therefore one less step!

Once one has selected an instructable, one has several viewing choices. If you want to view it as a pdf, you now have to click on the pdf icon. A second page comes up. You again select the pdf by filename and the pdf opens. It would be great if the pdf icon were to directly display the pdf, rather than having another page come up to view as pdf and then to have to click on the pdf file. One has already chosen to view the instructable as a pdf...so it's an extra unnecessary step. I suggest that clicking on the pdf icon directly brings up the instructable in pdf format.

I just downloaded what was supposed to be a pdf from https://www.instructables.com/id/Narnia-Book-Sculpture/ When I hit the download button, it downloaded it as a file with no attributes. I couldn't open the file. When I added .pdf to the filename, it worked, so it is a pdf file, it's just not downloading as a pdf file. I'm on a windows machine running 7, using Chrome.

I made a few edits to an Instructable and when I republished it the changes where not updated in the PDF download document. If I create a customer PDF I see the edits I made but not in the default PDF.

Hello, I am a new Pro user and when I try to download Instructables PDF's I am directed back to the PDF download page. Some Instructables will allow me to download their PDF's however. I don't see anything common to the instructables that either work or don't, so I am pretty confused. If it helps at all, the custom PDF download does not work at all. Thanks for the help.

Downloaded the PDF for "How to make a backpack by rlciavar" using the "Download Custom PDF" button with the default Custom Download settings. The PDF did not include the images in each of the steps. Using desktop PC with Windows 7 and Firefox 47.0.1. Url for the project: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-backpack/?ALLSTEPS

I made several edits to an Instructable yesterday and the PDF file doesn't show any of those edits. I would guess that the PDF file is cached, but that cache should be cleared after edits are made so that premium users can download a PDF that reflects the current version.

Each time I try to download a PDF on my iPad all it does is refresh the page. When I try on my MacBook, every time I click on the PDF icon, it requests me to sign in again and then redirects to the first step in instructions. The Print PDF link on both my iPad and MacBook are unresponsive. All the other links work. Help?
