PDF pages not fully loading/ displaying in the chrome pdf viewer 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 159 Upvotes

Often when I try to load pdf files with more than 10 pages in pdf viewer, chrome only loads the first page and the rest are shown as blank. The blue loading bar also gets stuck. The only way to access these pdf files is to manually download them which is very annoying. I have had this issue for a number of years and updating chrome has not helped. I have tried chrome cleanup, removing all my extensions and even reinstalling chrome with no luck.

We have been posting PDF files on our secure, logon-required asp.NET website for years...but we started seeing this same problem only a week ago. 

The PDF files that were opening in Chrome correctly* were saved without Fast Web View.
To see if a PDF was saved with Fast Web View, open the PDF and select File > Properties.
Under Description > Advanced, you will see the Fast Web View setting.
 
If Fast Web View is ‘No’, the file will open correctly in Chrome. If Fast Web View is ‘Yes’, it will not. This is counterintuitive, I know.
 
*Chrome has never displayed bookmarks in PDF files. This fix doesn’t change that.
 
To make sure the file is saved without Fast Web View, open Acrobat.
Go to Edit > Preferences.
Under Save Settings, make sure the Save As optimizes for Fast Web View setting is not checked.
 
When we change that setting before resaving our PDFs, our PDF files will open properly in Chrome.
