I'm browsing and saving working information in the form of pdf on my iphone. But today I found that one of my .pdf documents was not properly opened - half of the sheets are empty and with strange symbols, and for me it became a big problem. I considered a lot of options, made great efforts to open the document, but didn't achieve a positive result.

I highly suggest you use a computer for work like this

Not sure what to suggest. We are not experts in issues with PDFs. This is a forum for Koodo Mobile. We try to answer things not rated but all I can say is try to open it on a computer and see if the file is corrupted. Not much you can do if it is.

Have you tried another PDF reader?

I know only that classic adobe pdf repair. Alternative solutions might be Adobe PDF Online Service and other resources from Adobe

If you use a PC, you can use software you already have on your computer to retrieve some of the
content. Right-click on the corrupt file and choose ‘Open With’ and select the program that comes bundled with every copy of Windows. The resulting file will contain a lot of coding but within that coding you will see the content. This is perhaps a only really viable with text-only PDFs as when you are dealing with images and forms, will be swamped with coding and finding the text can be the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Hope this helps
