Disable Annoying Content Preparation Progress in Acrobat

By December 13, 2016HOW TO

Are you using the new Acrobat 9 reader from Adobe? Have you realized that whenever you open a PDF, a window pops up showing the content preparation progress? This is a annoying window that pops up every time you open a PDF file and it does not prepare the content fast enough. So you are waiting for this window to disappear before you start view the PDF file.

There is a workaround! In Adobe Acrobat 9, do the following:

  1. From the top toolbar, click Edit and then select Preferences or Ctrl+K.
  2. From the left pane, select Reading.
  3. Under the Screen Reader Options group box, under Page vs Document, select Only read the currently visible pages.
  4. Click OK.
Now you will never see the content preparation progress window ever again!
