Some users are reporting and issue when saving-as from within Adobe acrobat reader. When trying the save, instead of a dialogue box allowing you to choose the save location all you see is a blank dialogue box form/screen.

This should be able to be solved by turning off the option to save to online-storage. Normally you will be wanting to save the PDF document locally to your PC or a network share so this shouldn't create any problems for most users.

To make this change follow the steps below:

Open adobe reader:

  1. Go to the top menu and select 'Edit'
  2. Select 'Preferences'

(continued below)


  1. Click on the 'General' category
  2. Uncheck the 'Show online storge when saving files' checkbox

(Continued below)


Click on OK to close the dialog box
Close adobe reader, open a PDF files and test
