I got a message says, “This content requires Adobe Reader, which is not supported by your device. This content can be viewed on a desktop computer or on mobile devices that support Adobe Reader.” appears on my iPhone 3GS for the Safari browser when i not tried to download the Adobe Reader app for the iPhone OS version 3.

Any ideas? Or the operating system may have not been supported?

It seems that the Adobe Reader app is not supported on iPhone 3GS with the operating system version 3. You may need to upgrade your device or use a different method to view the content.

Why can't Adobe Reader PDF documents be edited? It seems to me that all it is good for is to transfer and print documents.

Answer by Murtuza

No. You cannot make permanent changes to PDF files using Adobe Reader; however you can perform many edit-like functions using Adobe Reader if the author has enabled these functions using Acrobat 7.0 Professional. For example, you can highlight text and add comments on sticky notes. If you're looking to create and exchange documents, collect and compare comments, and tailor file security to distribute reliable and polished Adobe PDF documents...

Can I download an older version of Adobe Reader (before Reader DC) on a Windows 7 machine? I don't want the tabs version; I want to be able to view two different .pdf files simultaneously.

Answer by Sean Hill

You have the possibility to download version 11 and DC through the official website (see link below). For additional downloads regarding previous versions, another website has to be visited.

The website is called OldApps, and you can browse it through Google Search:

Answer by Julia Bocchetta

You should obtain a new copy of the document because once a PDF file is damaged, there is no way to retrieve the lost content. This is the easiest way to overcome this error regarding damaged files.
