    hi,

    When I receive an email with a PDF attachment I can't open it. I am able to see the attachment and when a click on it the spinning icon comes up but nothing happens. If I press and hold the attachment I don't get a menu to open with other programs either. Has anyone seen this?

    Thanks

    When you mail the file, make sure the extension is showing. For some reason I've had files without extensions show up in mail, Mail will list them as pdf attachments, but will not give me any open options.

    Also, if the attachment is surrounded by a dotted line, it has not finished downloading. Tap on it and wait until it finishes downloading (surrounded by a solid line) before trying to do anything with it.

    If that's not it, hit us with some more details and I'll try a few more guesses.

    Have you install PDF reader into your ipad..?
    I think you should touch the file for more than 2sec, and then it will prompt menu "Open In"
