Can't open PDF even with extension installed !

Postby Joseph S. Klein » Sat Jun 21, 2014 8:44 am

Hi,

I can't get PDF documents to open even with the PDF import extension installed. what appears on the page seems to be code.
1st page- %PDF-1.4 (1st line); 5 0 obj (3rd line); << Length 6 0 R/Filter /FlateDecode >> (4th line); stream (6th line). 6 lines 1st page.
1st line 2nd page starting with ECR then strange characters.
can anyone help ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Joseph,

Have you restarted OpenOffice since installing the PDF extension?

Note that the PDF extension is intended for simple modifications to PDF files, not file
reading or re-layout. For those you need other (not OpenOffice) tools.

yeah. I've had the import PDF file extension all along. i just want to use draw to make minor corrections
so i don't have to keep switching to .odt then exporting as PDF every time.

I hope this will help you.
