This issue with the PDF not loading occasionally happens because either:
- the file is too large (we recommend files of less than 10MB so they reload quickly for future classes); or
- the internet connection is slow; or
- the user does not wait for the upload to finish. Large files may take a while to load with a slower speed connection (30 seconds - 90 seconds is possible)
Please be patient and if the file still doesn't load after a few minutes, please consider compressing the file first before re-uploading the file.
