    So I was playing around with the File Sharing feature of iTunes with my iPad and noticed something strange.

    When I opened up iTunes and clicked on the iPad then the "Apps" tab and scrolled down to the File Sharing section, I clicked on Noterize and then chose on of the files to sync to my computer. However, I wanted this file to be synced to a particular folder so I hit "Save to" and drilled down a couple levels in documents (i.e. Documents>School>2010-2011>FILENAME.PDF)

    After the syncing was complete I went to where the file was stored and it looked all perfect. However, when I opened the PDF it was just a blank white document. There was nothing on the page.

    I then went back to iTunes and chose the same file and saved it to the desktop. Viola! The file was there with all the text/graphics I added on my iPad.

    So I am assuming this is a Noterize problem, but wanted to see if anyone else could replicate the problem. I think there is a glitch that the files lose all of their content when saved to a specific, user-defined location.

    Thoughts?!

    I have had issues with file sharing and and folders, but don't think it is related to the blank PDF problem.

    I have had that with a few apps, some on the same file. I had to open it in preview on my Mac and resave it, then it worked just fine. I'm just assuming something happened on the Original save/conversion that the iPad PDF handler doesn't like. I know the biggest file for me with an issue was on I hadn't created and had been done on a windows box a few years ago.
