PDF-File cannot show its full size.

Post by MK2022 »

Hello support-team,

a colleague of mine want to open a pdf-file with a size of 21,5 MB in the PDF-XChange Editor.
The problem is, the file cannot show it's full size and get cut from one side.
What can I do against this problem?
How can I make it possible to see the full file in its full size?

Thanks for your help.

Hello MK2022,

Is the file larger than 200 inches (5080 mm) in either direction?

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

the measurements are:
W: 5080,0 mm
H: 4000,0 mm

How does it effect the PDF file?
Do you have any idea how can I make it full screen?

Kind regards
MK

Hello MK2022,

Thanks for confirming. Yes - those 5080mm are a special size when it comes to PDF documents.
I suspect your file is simiar to the one discussed here:
viewtopic.php?p=131972#p131972
And the explanation I've given in that other topic likely applies to your document as well.

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

ok, interessting. This is a pity..
With another PDF-reader, in this case the Foxit PDF Reader, it's possible to open the full size of the PDF-file.

Best Regards
MK

Hello MK2022,

Yes - the information is there, but technically the PDF specification tells us that we should NOT be showing that information, as the file is not properly formatted. The Viewer was showing such documents as well, but with the Editor we decided to follow the specification stricter.

Kind regards,
Stefan
