When opening a PDF file on a college computer that was created via an external source the following error maybe displayed:

a number is out of range

This can be caused for a number reasons - embedded image format or page size setup, but is most commonly caused by the use of a font that is not present on college computers

To resolve this issue and be able to open the PDF you will need to refer back to the source of the PDF and as them to recreate the PDF file using 'print PDF' rather than just saving as PDF from with Acrobat (the application used to created/edit PDF files).  This will ensure that the PDF contains all the necessary components it needs to open on other computers
