Printable PDF file for Letter-size paper, 2.7MB
I also get "file does not begin with '%PDF-'".
Reader 7.02, Firefox 1.0.3, installed.
Happens also with other of ypur PDF.
It works ok if you rightclick and "save link as" to save the pdf file, and view it after it's downloaded.
I have the same set up as Matt. If you save the file to disk and then open it via the Download Manager, it will open correctly.
I also have problems loading the PDF file in Firefox. No problems in IE though. Upgrading to Adobe Reader 7.02 also doesn't help.
So, I did some tests and it seems like this is a server side issue: I uploaded the PDF file to another server, and didn't get any error messages at all when trying to access it through Firefox or IE.
2nd paragraph under "Medium Term" (page 2). the word "will" is broken in half.
I have had no luck at all downloading this book. I've tried the other listed suggestions. Any other suggestions? I prefer the PDF for letter size but I will take anything! Thanks.
It worked for me - and opened fine on a PC running Adobe Reader 7 - prints very well too
Andrew -- thanks, I've fixed!
Re problems viewing the PDF in-browser. I'm at a loss -- I know that older version of Acrobat struggle with MacOS-created PDFs, but I lack any means of improving on the PDFs that I generate. It's not practical to rely on Windows users or Acrobat Distiller owners to generate PDFs for me, since I'm constantly refreshing the PDFs to fix typos, etc. I need a solution that works on my PowerBook.
Just a guess as to what the trouble is:
On my PC, the text display is slow, seems to indicate that Acrobat is rasterizing letterforms on the fly...this may be due to a font substitution made necessary by the Apple font originally used (i.e., it doesn't directly map to a PC font, or something like that).
My guess is that a little experimentation with typefaces might reveal a good MAC / PC face that doesn't cause this problem.
Just a guess and a suggestion.
Umm..when you hit the link it says "file is damaged and could not be repaired." help would be appreciated.
It's downloading as a gzipped file, but with a pdf suffix. I got it to work by adding ".gz" to the end of the file name, then unzipping it (I used "gunzip ..." in the terminal on OS X, but you might just double-click on it after renaming it). The .pdf file that results works fine.
Great stuff, too. Thanks!
Really appreciate it Cory! Thank you.
If the issue is that you're constantly refreshing the PDF to fix typos why don't you just have a printable version that is for windows.
I can't download this PDF and I would really like to, is the thing.
I would accept the typos if i didn't have to read it on a computer.
The PDF file worked fine. I have an ebookwise reader and am converting the PDF to a txt file I can upload to my reader. Read the first couple of chapters so far and I like it! Thank you, Cory!
