The pdf file - https://archive.org/details/de-forests-training-lesson-ftr-3-magnets-and-magnetism
This opens on page 14 instead of page 1 (or 0)
I have looked in scandata.xml (and others) but have not been able to figure out how to correct it.

I also tried the forum search, but get no results of any kind regardless of keyword.

Thanks :)

I have the same problem with this file now.

Is there anything I can do that would prevent this or is it just something that poor quality can trigger?

More files with the start page problem. All should start with the first page.

https://archive.org/details/de-forests-training-lesson-ftr-27-push-button-tuning-systems
https://archive.org/details/de-forests-training-lesson-ftr-28-frequency-modulation-transmitters
https://archive.org/details/de-forests-training-lesson-ftr-29-frequency-modulation-receivers

And then there is this file;
https://archive.org/details/de-forests-training-lesson-ftr-30-cathode-ray-tubes
The start page is correct, but when viewed in "My Library", the thumbnail is missing.

That is the last of that series of files, so hopefully this won't continue to be a nuisance.

The FTR-30 file has corrected the missing thumbnail overnight.

all fixed. it takes about 24 hours for the thumb to change.

nothing you are doing. our algorithm is just doing a poor job on these/

It has happened again. Not opening on the first page.

I am hoping that this issue isn't as frequent as it appears to be.
