Troubleshooting

This feature works by analyzing every pixel, including format changes. We changed the format of our standards for 2020, so this feature will not work with older documents because of the number of format changes. It will be functional between the 2020 documents and their successive versions.

You'll need to right-click in order for the links to open the content in a new tab.

When you are in a standard, you are working in the ASTM platform. With some links, you are taken to a pdf version that is not within the ASTM platform, taking away the tools. You'll need to go back to the previous tab to get back to the ASTM platform.

As soon as you click that button within a document, it downloads; look for it in another screen or in your web downloads.
