I created my resume in Pages 5.2.2 and converted it to a PDF using the "Export to PDF" feature.
Overall, everything seems to work fine. However, I am having problems applying to jobs on Jobvite. When I upload my resume using the "Upload Resume" dialog, it appears to upload, but then the file input changes to "No file selected." and the site freezes. The dialog still says "Uploading" and I see these errors in my web console:
SyntaxError: unterminated string literal UploadOverlay.aspx:17 ReferenceError: init is not defined UploadOverlay.aspx:1
I thought the problem was on their end, so I emailed them about it and they said the problem may be caused because I renamed the PDF after I exported it. I was careful to export the PDF again and not rename it, but when I tried uploading it, the same thing happened. I told them about it and they said they would look into it, but I haven't heard anything from them since then. That was 3 weeks ago.
I reported the problem to Apple using the "Provide Pages Feedback" feature, but they said they would not be able to reply directly to me.
I used to make my resume in LibreOffice and it worked fine. I can continue to use LibreOffice for now, but I like Pages a lot more (apart from this bug).
Does anyone know why this is happening or what can be done about it?
