HELP: Nitro slow to open or save documents

Question

cusas

For some reason anytime I open or save documents Nitro takes forever.  It goes into, "not responding" for a 3-5 minutes but eventually it will open up the folder. Then once I select the file I want or type the name of the new file, it takes another few minutes once I click open/save.  

What can I do to fix this issue?  

I have no other issues with other programs accessing my folders, opening, or saving documents. 

I have rebooted many times with no difference.

THANK YOU

Hello,

I am having the same issue.  When I open or save files, it does take a long time, sometimes freezes and sometimes opens a window where I can choose to shut down or wait.  

When I try to attach PDF files to emails, it also freezes and dose not respond.

I received an email saying Nitro Pro 11 is now available to resolve these problems. It was only after being installed that I find there is a cost to register again. This should have been advised in the email rather than leading me to believe this release is to fix bugs. Why should I be forced to pay to fix bugs? I don't need new features. I now need to download and revert to Nitro Pro 10.

Upon introduction of Nitro Pro 12, I bought one some monthes ago before release, as a successor for most earlier edions I had. The programme installed itself (14 2 2018) on Windows 8 personal 8.2 9200, in stead of the running Windows 10 1803. Information: Speed of opening Nitro is extreme slow, and I think that this is caused by this Windows Installment.  How come and what to do?

Hello @oisterwijk,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

Kindly run Nitro Pro with Compatibility mode by referring to these steps:
1. Right-click Nitro Pro desktop shortcut or the NitroPDF.exe (by default is installed in C:\Program Files\Nitro\Pro X) then select Properties
2. Nitro Pro Properties window will open, click on Compatibility tab
3. Under Compatibility Mode, tick the box for 'Run this program in compatibility mode for', click the drop-down arrow and select Windows 7 if you're using Windows 10 (Choose Windows XP if you're using Windows 7)

In order for me to further assist you, could you please provide me with the following?:
-Is this a new issue or has it occurred since the beginning? When did it start happening? Any changes you're aware of before this happened?
-What build of Nitro Pro are you working with? You can find this out by clicking on 'About Nitro Pro' under the Help tab (format is 12.X.X.X, e.g. 12.0.0.112)
-Does this happen with every large PDF or just some of them? Are these files saved on your machine or you're pulling them from a shared drive? Are they AutoCad files by any chance?

Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

This did not resolve my issue. In addition to this, I performed a repair on the installation using the windows 10 add or remove programs tool.

After repairing the installation my problem was alleviated for a couple of days but it is back again. My custom menu items are also getting deleted. There is a delay when a file opened, created or appended. There is also a delay when adding pages from the clipboard or from a file. No other apps on my PC are lagging like Nitro Pro. It's seriously affecting my productivity.

There was a not a recent Windows 10 update.

I am using Nitro Pro 13.2.6.26

This happens with every file. The wait time has gotten better. However, every time I open, preview, or append any PDF file there is still a delay of 6 - 30 seconds. 

My system has an abundance of memory and processing power. My other apps are running great, including those that use a lot of resources.

Hello @UserPerson,

Thank you for this information.

I am pleased to inform you that we just release Nitro Pro 13.8.2.140 so please update using below direct installers:

x32 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_1382140/en/retail/nitro_pro13_ba_x86.msi 
x64 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_1382140/en/retail/nitro_pro13_ba_x64.msi

If you are not sure which to pick, this will help:  https://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/64/000003790 

Should the program still have the same slow behavior, do you have custom fonts installed on your system?

Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.

Just wanted to say that I, too, am having this issue. Was doing the trial of Pro attached to free version, to see if it was worth getting pro version. (Version 11.0.3.173) After one day of use, I have to say that the program is so slow as to be unusable. As others have said, 2-5 minutes to open a document, and it locks up again (not responding) when saving. I see that this issue was first reported in May of 2017. The fact that it's still not fixed is enough to convince me to look for other software solutions. It's too bad, as the program, once it finally loads, looks good. But I work with a moderate to large number of pdf files on a daily basis, and don't have that kind of time to wait for them to load/save.
