    I subscribe to Safari Books Online. I can download books inPDF format. I downloaded a book to my PC where it displays correctly. I moved the file to iTunes and synced it with my iPad. When I open the file on my iPad, all the illustrations are blank. :mad: Any ideas?

    Try loading and reading the pdf in GoodReader. You can make a few adjustments to the pdf reading engine in the app's settings. Try those if it doesn't work at first.

    Dealing with downloads from Safari Books Online

    1. I tried using GoodReader - the problem remained.
    2. I contacted Safari Books Online with my complaint. The responded with a message saying they were fixing the PDF so it would download correctly.
    3. A better solution was to download the book in ePub format on the iPad itself. No need to get involved with iTunes. Worked perfectly.

    Problem solved.

    Just remember to use some application other then iTunes to save the book into your PC. Be careful with using the Sync Books on the iTunes.
