Are you experiencing problems opening PDFs from our EasyLodge Portals?
If you have encountered difficulties opening Company Annual Statement Packages (RC06) or any other PDF document accessed from our EasyLodge portals — it may be as a result of your:
Internet security settings
Internet browser settings
Adobe PDF reader version or
Server and security settings.
In the first instance, we recommend that you try the following:
Save the PDF document on your computer and try opening from its saved location
Change browser settings to allow PDF documents to open (this may be in a new window or tab)
Change browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer)
If you are still having issues, we suggest you seek your own IT advice to find out how to enable PDF documents to open (where security is preventing the PDF from opening).
We have not received any other reports of this issue occurring in our other online services.
