Hey there @GQCHEN - sorry to hear about this.

Could you please try another browser (or an incognito and clearing your browser's cache) and let me know the results? 

Also, does this happen for all of your files or some? Can you preview those on our website at all?

Keep me posted on your findings please.

What program are you using to open them to begin @GQCHEN? Can you try another one for that specific type of files as the issue seems to be with the 3rd party app you're using to open those PDF files?

I am having the same problem. Tried three different computers. Worked fine last week and I can view last weeks scans. I can view the scans from this week online but not when I download and try to view with adobe reader. Just get a blank page

If that's the case, I'd suggest reaching out to Adobe directly @Dannmobile.

Keep us posted on your findings and if you have any Dropbox questions or issues in the meantime, do let me know please!

Thanks in advance and happy Monday!
