Gibberish When open PDF

Postby huot » Fri Dec 02, 2011 5:05 pm

Hello,
I am new to OO, I need help. When I open my saved pdf in OO, all I get is just codes. First time was okay, after I installed my OO 3.3, but today was a different story. It's normal when I open pdf in widows. I searched FAQ's with no luck.
This is what I get:
###—###K€#�%À#À’à#`Ip#°$¸#X#\#, .###—###K€#�%À#À’à#`Ip#°$¸#X#\#, .###—###K€#�

More to this I just copy one of the line.
I am using OO 3.3 on Windows XP with SP3

Thank you for your help in advance.

You can't open a pdf in OOo without the PDF Import Extension http://extensions.services.openoffice.o ... /pdfimport. Even then it will open in Draw and only allow very limited editing. You need a PDF reader like Adobe http://get.adobe.com/reader/ or Foxit http://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/ ... 7QodSkiapA.
