In trying to attach or drag a "fill in the blank" (says please fill out the following form. You can save data typed into this form.) pdf to mail, I get the following message, about the size if the pdf would display it's content in the letter:

"Please wait...
If this message is not eventually replaced by the product contents of the document, your PDF viewer my not be able to display this type of document.

You can upgrade to the lates version of Adobe Reader for Windows, Mac, Linux by visiting http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

For more assistance with Adobe Reader visit http://www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html"

I am using 9.1.3 reader, the most recent.
Regular PDF show just as a file attachment when attached or dragged in.

Do you think this is because it is a "fill in the blank" pdf?

    OK, since no one else seems to be experiencing this I will close it out.

    I have a PDF document created by a clothing manufacture that comes up with the "Please wait" message. It appears that Adobe products are generating malformed PDF's that only their current line of readers will display properly. I can post this document, if necessary.

    I JUST received a PDF that is giving this message to me. Never seen this before.

    I can only assume it's how it's saved. It is in fact a 'form' but I've been able to view forms before and been able to create and edit forms with PDFpenPro.

    I can only assume this is from the latest release of Acrobat Pro and that's it's 'breaking' forms on the Mac.

    NOTE: I am able to open and edit said PDF with the latest version of Acrobat Reader -- I'm assuming my assumption is true.
