I can download the majority of PDFs fine from any source; however, I've found that I can't download some specific PDFs. For example, when I download either the Network Railcard application form or the Network Railcard area PDFs from http://www.network-railcard.co.uk, I get the 'tap to open' screen, but then nothing happens... I can download the same PDF from a different source.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar, or have any suggestions what the cause (or fix) might be?

    Works for me, on a Lumia 1020 running the Cyan update (8.1) - what phone/OS version are you using? – Rowland Shaw Aug 12 '14 at 7:46
  • Yeh, sorry, should have stated: Lumia 820 on 8 (OS version 8.0.10517) – ChrisW Aug 12 '14 at 10:57
  • I've occasionally come across pdf's that won't open on the phone but I haven't been able to work out anything they had in common. – Rikalous Aug 12 '14 at 21:17
  • If I may, which PDF reader are you using? There are multiple choices available. – MikeBaz - MSFT Aug 26 '14 at 19:57
