When opening certain types of pdfs from a link from a private site for work, some of the text is overlapping in the document. Particularly when there are bullets and tables. These are instructional documents that were originally created in InDesign with lots of steps, tables, bullets, etc. I opened several other pdfs from various other sites, all of the pdf's seemed to work seamlessly. What could cause these types of pdfs to malfunction on the iPad and how do I fix it?
While I am using tables in my iPad 2, text in each field is getting overlapped with the borders of the table. The extent of overlapping will differ according to the font I am used for the text. What should I do to avoid this overlapping?
I currently cannot input any text fields while viewing PDFs on the ipad using any free PDF readers. (PDF reader, ibook etc) 2) PDF forms that have been filled out come through empty/blank. Is apple coming out w/ a fix for this? If not, what can I do to view and input text fields?
I got an iPad for primarily reading scientific pdfs from the web. It does this very well....for the first page and a half. I can get it to load up full documents. It just cuts off the rest of the doc, ith no option to scroll down.
Anyone having problems getting gmail to load completely? My setting in gmail is on the new theme and set to view as if it was in desktop mode, but somehow, gmail gets stuck in loading. And scrolling down is not available...
how to stop constant refreshing when viewing we pages using safari and wifi? It's irritating when trying to view galleries. I start one pic #1, then each time I try to move to the next pic, the page refreshes and I'm sent back to pic #1. I've even tried using another browser.
Is there anyway to link two tables so they move together without overlapping/overwriting each other? At the moment I have a spreadsheet with two tables. The top table has 20 rows of data. The second table directly beneath it summaries the above. I use a form to enter data into the first table. This was going pretty well, until I ran into a situation where I had to add more data. In the form I hit the plus symbol, adding a few new rows and expanding the upper table. I expected the bottom table to be moved further down, but instead it stayed in place, both tables overwriting each other. So, is there anyway to link these two tables so they move in unison?
Text search in safari? I am curious why Apple would leave this feature out? I hear there is an app that does this, but I will not pay for an app that does what the iPad should do already. Information : Mac Mini, iBook G4, iPad Mac OS X (10.6.4) Mac Mini: 2.53GHz Late 2009.
Apple's iOS 4.2 page, in which the new OS is presented and briefly explained,includes the information, "Find text on web pages: In Safari, you can do a quick text search to find and highlight specific words and phrases on even the longest web pages."The iPad _iOS4_User_Guide.pdf, however, seems to make no mention of this feature, nor can I see any obvious way of searching a page in Safari itself.Is this something still to be incorporated in Safari, or am I missing something (very obvious, perhaps)?Information : iMac 27" Mac OS X (10.6.4) iPad WiFi 32GB.
I have an iPad that occasionally displays safari webpages in weird characters.I attached an image so you'll know what it looks like.I cleared all the browsing data and made sure the os is up to date. But on occasion and with no consistency get an page like the attached.
When I go to a site like CBS Marketwatch, the footer at the bottom of the page stays over the text and moves with the page when you scroll up or down. I can also get this to happen with bbhybrids.net. It happens on my iPod touch so I think it is a Safari problem.
I am a minister and have access to several sites with Bible translation. With my iPad I cannot seem to select text so I can copy and paste it into Pages. These sites are public domain so there is no copyright problem. I can do this on my MacBook Pro with Safari, but not with iPad Safari. Any ideas why not. I actually was able to do it once, but then I could not duplicate the action. Information : MacBook Pro 2.2 Ghz. Mac OS X (10.6.2).
question to IPAD IOS4.2 in Safari, you can do a quick text search to find and highlight specific words and phrases on even the longest web pages. how could be used? "a quick text search", how to do? I only can speak a little English, please use easier words to answer me, and thank you very much!Information : iOS 4.
Often in blogs and chat boards, so-called "spoiler information" is written in the same color text as the background, to prevent the casual reader from stumbling acoss revelations they do not want to know. Hightlighting the text with the cursor will reveal the white text against a now blue-colored background (for instance). Selecting such text on the iPad simply produces a blue box. Is there something I'm missing here or is this yet another example of Safari on the iPad being vastly inferior to its desktop counterpart? Information : MacBook Core Duo 2.0 Mac OS X (10.6.4) 2GB RAM/500GB 7200 HD.
Was in facebook, writing a new comment on my Wall. Pasted some text in, and Safari crashed back to the launcher.Information : Mac Mini Intel 2.53 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo Mac OS X (10.6.3) 4 GB 1067 Mhz DDR3.
I have noticed that there are some instances where Safari and other browsers don't recognize a field on a web page as being one for data entry. I run a number of websites using the Joomla content management system and the editor for entering content is a wysiwyg editor. When the editor is in the wysiwyg mode, Safari, Eyebrowse, and iCab do not recognize that I can type into the editor. If I toggle the wysiwyg mode, I can enter data with no problem.I have tested 5 different editors plugins, and each has the same result. I have a work around for the time being, and have put in a bug report to Apple. Has anyone else had a similar problem and has anyone found a solution?Information : 2 GHz Intel Core Duo Mac Mini, iPad 3G 64GB Mac OS X (10.6.3) 2 GB RAM.
I have a 3 page sample of a book on my website (generated from InDesign) that reads fine on the Mac Safari and other programs on the Mac.
However, the PDF will only show garbled, overlying text when viewed on the iPad Safari and PDF HD. It is not file size related as I have an 8-page newsletter nearly four times the size of file and also created in InDesign --> PDF that views just fine.
I have exported the PDF and also print to PDF as a new file and it still comes out a mess.
The graphics and music illustrations are ok, some lines of text, and titles. The fonts used are Times TT and Helvetica. There is also a IPA linguistic font used. Basically all other text in the three pages is just garbage.
Anyone else see this happening and how can I fix the situation so clients can see the sample on iPad? Can the imbedded EPS files in the document be what is fouling things up? The illustrations are essential for the sample from the book.

I'm using an Ipad 3 I have safari sset to use the google search in settings†but when I search for something and it shows the results page I can only select links holding my finger on the text below the link does nothing.†Sometimes the answer I'm looking for is in the text and I can just copy it instead of having to click the link to see it.
Are you working on updating Mobile Safari to support many Web-based rich text editors? Please consider updating Mobile Safari for iPad and iPhone. For example, iPad users cannot take advantage of learning platforms, like Sakai, due to this lack of support in Mobile Safari. Sakai uses the CKEditor which is an open-source rich text editor for the Web. According to the company, the issue resides with Mobile Safari and its lack of support for contenteditable areas.Here is a related discussion thread in these forums, which suggests that other sites and services would benefit by changes to Mobile Safari
I am accessing a FAQ on gamefaqs. It's a long text file about a video game. If you'll pardon my video game geekiness, I think I've found a bug with Safari.
I am accessing [URL]
I am trying to use the search feature to find certain text on the page. But every time I use the find feature, it crashes my session of safari. Please try to access that page and find a word that's in the document. For example, "spoilers" is clearly in the document. But when I try to search for it, it crashes. Can anyone confirm this bug? I am using iPad 2.
I've been using Text+ to send and receive free text messages almost a week now. I am so impressed that I decided to buy the ad free version. It works exactly like the free version but minus the ads.I love the interface. It looks similar to iChat or like the messaging app on my iPhone.And best of all you get FREE unlimited texts!
