I am having a terrible time with pdf files not opening

I am having a terrible time with pdf files not opening

(OP)
in corel 12 because it says file is corrupt when other times pdf will open. There doesn't to be general reason why one opens and one doesn't.

RE: I am having a terrible time with pdf files not opening

Corel is a company that makes several programs. Do you mean Corel DRAW?

Because there are so many different types of PDF files, it is not ideal to edit them, especially with software from a company that does not control the PDF specification. It is better to edit native CorelDRAW design documents and then save/export a PDF copy.

General Repair of Adobe Acrobat Reader

- Go to adobe website, click the "Support" tab on the top of the screen, and click on "Adobe Reader," and then select the "I can't open a PDF document" statement underneath "Troubleshooting." The Support tab is located near the top of the screen as a white word against a black backdrop. After clicking Support, you will see the phrase "Product Support Centers" on a new page in bold white font, under which is "Adobe Reader." The new page after clicking "Adobe Reader" will have the word "Troubleshooting" underneath the phrase "Adobe Reader and Help Support." Underneath "Troubleshooting" is "I can't open a PDF document."

- Follow the instructions on how to complete a general repair and installation of Adobe Acrobat Reader. To attempt the most basic PDF repair method, Open "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (select the program in your Start menu, which is on the bottom-left part of the screen), select "Help" from the gray tab menu at the top of Adobe Acrobat Reader, and click on "Repair Adobe Reader Installation." A meter should pop up indicating that your Adobe version is being checked for errors and is being linked back to the home Adobe website just in case you need to download a new update of the program. If you need to download an updated version of the program, another pop-up will appear on your screen asking you if you want to update Adobe. Click "Yes."

- Reopen the PDF file. It should now be readable. If not, then try the next set of directions.

- Apply professional online recover service for corrupted .pdf files https://onlinefilerepair.com/en/pdf-repair-online.... PDF On-line repair service
