Forum: genealogy Subject: No preview available

I am attempting to upload a collection of genealogies that I am scanning to searchable PDF files. The files are uploading without error and I can see them on my page, but when I select an item no preview is available, and the message says the item must be downloaded to interact with. Is there a way I can fix that? I have many more pages to scan but don't want to do it until my first two files are correct.
Example 1: https://archive.org/details/john-alden-of-ashfield-mass-and-chautauqua-county-new-york
Example 2: https://archive.org/details/descendants-of-john-alexander-of-lanarkshire-scotland
I'd also appreciate any guidance on ways I can improve descriptions, metadata, etc. Thank you!

I suspect you're right, tasks not completed. Thanks for responding.
