  • Hi,

    Thank you for this submission.  We will investigate this.

    I did notice that the cross reference table is invalid.  I am guessing this is the issue and Edge is being strict, but we will look into it.


    Also, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (Version 2017.012.20098) does not open it either.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. In this case, the PDF file is incomplete (trailer dictionary is invalid, no end of file marker) which is why we throw the error. We currently do not have a plan to fix this.

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team
