Interesting. I have no idea how this works. Both those plans were produced by others, not me, so I just copied them and listed them as they were. I assume different people produce PDFs in different ways, I mean if it was exported from Gimp as a PDF or ditto from Photoshop, there may be some differences in the .. encoding? Plus of course the user settings chosen at that point will vary.
If it was me, it would be from Photoshop CS3 and exported to PDF using the settings I show here : http://www.outerzone.co.uk/tutorials/02/index.asp
at the bottom of the page .
The P51 plan at ID# 64 seems to be at a resolution of 800 dpi, which is very high, and gives a total px width of 30,000 pixels - I think that rings a bell, maybe images over that size cause problems? It works fine for me on my PC here ... not easy for me to check what you are seeing without installing the linux os and all that etc. Which is not a trivial job.
