Hey I'm having an issue where if I open PDFs then sometimes the last few pages are just totally blank. Then sometimes it doesn't display any of the pages at all, and sometimes it works fine. I can't seem to find any reason this might be happening, I've tried a few different PDFs and it just seems random. Eventually the PDF does sometimes display properly, but only after a few minute. It happens intermittently on both Preview and Skim, but doesn't happen on the spacebar finder preview, which always displays it fine.

Here is an example. You can see that the table of contents in the sidebar are also "greyed out".

Preview broken PDF

Here is the the same PDF in Skim. Showing all but the last few pages as working.

Skim broken PDF

I've tried restarting and it didn't change anything.
