***The following with View -> PDF -> Single Page
Wondering if anyone is having issues with viewing and navigating PDF files? I have a Library with about 400 mixed files but have selected a folder with only 24 small (1-4 page, 35K-250K) PDF files. I am trying to view these in the Record Viewer but when I click on a file I just get a blank white outline of the document in the viewer. After 10-20 seconds, the first page will render, but if it is a multipage document then the additional pages do not become available to scroll at all (two finger with the trackpad). However, if I click on the first page in the viewer window then I can use the arrow keys to move up and down the document (pinch to zoom will work once I am on each page).
I am having a hard time quantifying the issue. If I hit the spacebar to get a document preview then the file is instantly rendered and all pages are scrollable even if the background document in the Record Viewer is still plain white outline.
***The following with View -> PDF -> Continuous Scrolling
Ok, just found the View -> PDF options. So when I switch to the continuous scrolling mode, the first page is often blank white outline but the following pages are instantly viewable … then after 10-20 seconds the first page appears. Just to make it more interesting, sometimes it is the second page that is blank white outline but the first page and then pages 3+ are viewable.
This is strange. I cannot seem to reproduce all of these issues. Once I have viewed and switched away from a file, sometimes it is instantly available when I switch back and sometimes it returns to a blank white outline.
Just tried with a much larger Library with larger and longer PDF files. The same issue except the pages that are available to view instantly are pixelated and unreadable for 5-10 seconds until the screen is rendered clear. Again this is only in the Record Viewer because if I use the document preview (spacebar) then all pages are instantly available, scrollable, zoomable, and clear.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. Let me know if I can provide any additional information. Thanks
