    Have you let the screen turn off while reading a pdf? If that happens, the program freezes, no more page turning or zooming in/out. I will have to restart the app. I can't believe there isnt an easy update to that bug which has been around since i can remember. Downright sad for a so called "business phone" as front page writers like to recommend it as.
    Yea, it's a LONG way from being a "business" phone! Yes, the freezing happened to me a couple of times and I wonder what it was related to.

    I'm not 100% that the lawsuit is still pending btw.
    I'm guessing they are using a different technology or turning the HP lawyers loose on Artifex to resolve the issue in 2.2 or 2.3 because they can't release the TouchPad or Pre 3 without a PDF viewer!

    That is a very good point.

    I have to open my e-mail PDF attachments on my 1st gen iPod instead of my Pixi Plus. How stupid is that? If the problem still exists on the Pre 3 I may have to move to an iPhone, uhg!

    Does the PDF viewer work on WebOS 2.1 or 1.4.x?

    This is now happening on my Veer. Im so disappointed... I thought it was fixed. I have 2 Veers, one patched and one stock. At first the PDF worked great, even on large files like a 30 page color magazine. I even downloaded a 200 page book, no problems. A couple of days later though, I downloaded a new magazine... and it just spins forever on the grey screen. No more failure message, just an eternal spin. Thinking it was due to patches, I tried it on the wifes stock Veer... and same thing. Several restarts, now neither one will open anything but a simple one or two page document.
    Im going to talk to Palm/HP today... this is going to be a deal breaker. How long can they expect us to wait for essential business tools like this? I could be OK for eternity with no Netflix, Shazam, or other silly time wasters. But I wont keep nursing a platform that cant get these simple tools working.

    Bump... Wondering if anyone can confirm PDF problems on the Veer? Also, those with a Touchpad; Please comment on the PDF rendering as well, since it's running 3.0.

    I find that the PDF viewer on my Pre2 will sometimes not let me zoom in/out.

    However, I'd really like to be able to view PDF's in landscape rather than portrait. Wasn't there a patch in 1.4.5 that enabled landscape PDF's? This is not available in 2.1?

    I can't go to landscape mode...it doesn't seems nothing...just only a black screen!!!

    Anybody can fix that kind of bug on webOS 2.1.0...We need a new patch instead the PDF Redux...that doesn't works for me!!!
