I get a “Can’t save” message when trying to upload scanned document on iOS

I get a “Can’t save” message when trying to upload scanned document on iOS

Explorer | Level 3
I’m getting a “Can’t save - there was a problem saving the file. Try again later” message when trying to upload scanned documents on iOS. This keeps happening all the time since a couple of months ago. Don’t know what can it be. I have the latest version for iOS 13.7

Hi @chrisro12, thanks for checking in with us. 

 

Could you let me know the exact steps you follow that result in this error message? 

 

Also, a screenshot (without any personal info) would be very helpful, so that we can have a better visual understanding. 

 

Keep us posted!

Hi Lusil,
Sure. What I did was click in Create > Scan Document > then scanning the document and following all the usual steps, until uploading the document to a file (any file indeed). After that, I get the message as displayed in the attached screenshot. Thank you for the reply.

Hi @chrisro12, have you tried saving it with the lowest quality using the slider bar in that image?
