  • Hi Christian,

    Have you tried downloading that PDF again? I just opened in it Preview (version 7.0 on Mac OS X 10.9.5) and it worked as expected.

    We actually recommend reading our PDFs in Adobe Reader, as Preview doesn't always handle them as well. Have you tried that PDF in Adobe Reader?

  • Hi Chris,

    Now I have problem opening Python_for_Finance also, it crashes my Mac completely.
    I'm using Mavericks and I've never had issues with PDF files before.

    I tried Adobe Reader, but it is really slow opening the files. Are you sure you didn't change the way you are generating PDFs? I'm a heavy reader of PDF files and so far I had problem only with these last O'Reilly books. The other ones from Packtpub, Springer, etc. work fine.

    Please could you have a look.

    I'm attaching an screenshot of what I see before my mac crashes.

    Thanks again,
    Christian
