LSAC PDF Preview
« on: October 09, 2004, 09:56:43 AM »
I'm uploading my doc's for my optinal essays, and all my other documents had a working PDF Preview, except one.  Everytime I upload it, when it allows me to preview it, it returns a blank window.  Has this happened to anyone?  Any work arounds?

This happened to me as well. I called LSAC technical support, and apparently when you have a fair number of documents uploaded (I think I had 4), this happens. When the window pops up with the blank screen, just press F5 and the PDF should pop up.

If that doesn't work, I would suggest calling LSAC Tech Support. They're very helpful.

I had the same problem.  All I had to do was update my Adobe Acrobat software to 6.0 and it worked.  I previously had 5.0.

this is happening to me now too...and it worked fine last week. I have made no changes to my system in the meantime, so this leads me to believe it is an error on thier side.

Have you tried logging out completely and logging back in? That worked for me when I was having problems. Also I make sure to upload the attachment to both the application and to saved documents for future use. I've noticed that sometimes the preview will work for the save doc file but not for the application, so I'll just delete it from the app and add it again from the saved docs. Hope that helps.

well i had the adobe reader 5 version and it had worked sometimes, but usually not.  when i called the tech ppl at lsac they said uninstall all adobe reader software that i have and then go to adobe.com and install the new 6 version.  i did it, no problems since.
