Text Overlapping When Viewing Pdf In Safari

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?

Text Overlapping While Using Table In IPad 2
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?

Spreadsheet: Link Two Tables Without Overlapping / Overwriting Each Other
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
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.

Unable To Select Text In Safari
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).

Highlight Hidden Text In Safari
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.

Safari Unable To Recognizing Some Text Entry Fields
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)

PDF Files Show Garbled And Overlying Text On Safari
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.

Will Apple Update Mobile Safari To Support Many Web Rich Text Editors?
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

Use The Search Feature To Find Certain Text On The Page - Crashes My Session Of 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.

Viewing Files
Clearly, one of the most practical uses for iPad is to hook up to my Mac desktop, transfer documents, photos, etc, into the iPad, then display them in some remote setting. I have read some editorial comment that suggests iPad does or does not have this feature, or can only do this through iTunes. While I want to confirm that iTunes can play movies, etc (for example, while traveling), I would like also to clarify whether iPad can move and display items in some method similar to Finder/Preview.Edited to make question clearer..... iPad can have apps put on it, I know, including works and/or life(?). But out of the box, can it do simple Finder browsing and Preview displays?
