@AnthonyV,
Have you tried viewing the pdf file with Shields down?

It behaves the same if I just open a PDF on the local file system. No shields active as far as I can tell.

I believe Chrome and Brave use a different embedded PDF viewer.

Hi. I’ve come across this in .PDF viewers before - it’s not the data isn’t ‘there’, it’s just not being lined up properly with the field letterboxes. Sorry if that’s not professional jargon but you see what I mean? It’s not lining up with the viewholes.

I don’t know Brave that well yet - brand NOOB! - but if it’s like other browsers, there should be plug-ins available for it and one of them should be a .pdf reader. The plug-in should - sorry about all the ‘shoulds!’ be more standardized than the built-in viewer and therefore more likely to work!

Best I can say for now.

Yours respectfully

Chris.
