Help with Point: Opening a Point-converted PDF

BJ Bounds

Point is great about converting loan documents in to PDF’s.  It’s a wonderful tool that keeps your documents secure and un-alterable.  But PDF conversions can be finicky just like MS Word documents. Have you ever tried to save a word document with a “/” in it for date?  It’s frustrating, but it just won’t take it.

Well, similarly, if you’ve got an extremely long file path name or a “forbidden” character, you will see “”Could not open .PDF because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged” when you try to open it.

The solution is to convert your forms to PDF’s and save them on your C: drive.
