We know how tough it gets working with PDF documents sometimes. At the end of the day, PDFs are hard to edit, and encountering this issue may be annoying.
By the end of this article, you'll know how to fix this error and easily view & delete PDF pages. Let's get at it!
Adobe says that a PDF's number is out of range because it misses data about the file. To fix it, ask the owner for a new copy, use Adobe Distiller to convert the PostScript file into a new PDF, or try an online repairer.
According to Adobe, the best way to repair the number out of range is to ask the original owner of the file for a new copy of the document.

Let's check out how these work and figure out how to repair a PDF with a number out of range.
The quickest (and free) way to fix a PDF with numbers out of range is to upload it to SignHouse's PDF repair tool, wait 10 seconds, and download the working file. If that doesn't work, you can use Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but that's going to be longer.

The "A number is out of range" error is encountered because Acrobat Reader misses data about a PDF. To fix it, you can either ask the PDF's owner for a new copy or use Acrobat Distiller to convert the PostScript file into a new PDF.
