Steps to reproduce

My application generates PDF documents from a web page. They are rendered correctly in all other viewers, including Adobe products. I have previously validated the document in both Adobe Acrobat Pro and an online validator I found. I have to assume that there is some element or object that Edge is expecting/requiring but it gives no indication of what the problem is. The result is the same if the document is generated and immediately opened in Edge or if it is a local file. When generated while using Edge and then saved to disk, the contents are all correct, it is exactly as expected, and other PDF viewers are able to display the saved file correctly (eg. Adobe Acrobat Reader DC).

This happens whether the default app is Edge or Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.


Comments and activity

  • Just realized that the problem might not be completely clear. When I try to view that document in Edge, it displays a blank page.
