Topic: File is Damaged
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 53325

Dear Developers,

I am having a problem with all pdf files I create. I get a message that says: "file is damaged and is being repaired".

What I find interesting is that even though my xref section is correct I get errors, but when I increment my xref starting number in my trailer 1 byte, the file comes up with the exception of the "file is damaged" error. No matter what I've tried and done, i can't get rid of this error.

I've created a simple text example where I get this error, you will notice that the number relating to the start of the xref is actually 1 more byte then it should be, this is the only way I can get it to come up(display).....
