Can you add a bit more detail? Which PDF are you trying to download, where from, and with what browser?

Where are you downloading it from? Which website? EDIT: Presumably it's "share as" from

I've just tried "share as" at and got a "map.pdf" that looked OK.

The resulting PDF is 771648 bytes and the md5sum is 429c1f83e33a36db98d423527afaf9ab .

Perhaps there's a problem with the PDF viewer you are trying to open it in?

I have tried your link and i am not able to get the pdf. in this instance would you be able to email me the pdf or a link to it. it would really help me out as i am up against it on this one email.

thanks in advance

Thank you so much, perfect, really frustrating why my computer will not download.

Could you try another browser? To isolate whether it's a browser-specific issue or not.
