Hey @VR2012, thanks for posting us here & letting us know what you’ve already tried! 
 
  • Following-up from your description, can you clarify if you’re downloading the .pdf from your own account or from a shared link
  • If the latter, are you facing the same issue with specific or all files on the link? 
Please let me know & we’ll go from there. Thanks again!

I appreciate your prompt reply @VR2012!
 
It looks like this is a one-off, so it would be more efficient if we had a closer look at the specific file causing you trouble. I’ve just sent you a brief message, in order to check back on the info I have on file on my tools. 
 
Please have a look at your inbox when you have a spare minute & we’ll take it from there!
