Can't get BarBri fillable PDF's to show up properly on iPad

Postby tx1987 » Sun Jun 30, 2013 2:42 am

Hi everyone. Is anyone else having trouble getting their handouts to show up properly on their iPads? The filled-in blanks are not showing up. Is there a (preferably free) app I can use to get it to display properly?

I had the same problem. I save them to Dropbox and open them in acrobat reader for ipad and they work.

The Barbri PDFs suck in general. For 3500 bucks you would think they would have someone competent create the fill in the blank PDF.

I have shit handwriting so typing is necessary.

As a general fyi, ios7 will fix the issue on the native app

I've had the same problem on my Kindle Fire.

When I save my completed filled PDFs to dropbox, and then open them using the dropbox app for my kindle, they open but all of the blanks are blank.
