PDf distorted view after importing

This has never happened before, but today when I import this PDF the view in Devonthink is distorted. These screenshots show it outside DT and then what it looks like after importing.

Good if you provided a screen shot of the same PDF in Apple’s Preview (not in DEVONthink which you assert is the cause of the distortion), and if from a URL, show that also.

You are correct! When I open it in Preview but outside Devonthink I get the same distortion. See here:

This is the url of the document: FBI Records: The Vault — Charles Coughlin Part 01 of 02

My hunch is that you’ll have to talk to the FBI about this. They don’t make taking copies off their “Vault” very easy … Looks bad here too. Looks like an interesting case, though.

Thank you. It is OK in Acrobat but not in Preview or it seems in Devonthink.

Acrobat uses a different PDF engine. I’m pretty sure if you store the downloaded document to DEVONthink, and then "open with " Acrobat all will be ok. DEVONthink is good about providing easy access to other tools. I don’t have Acrobat to test this before suggesting it.

Correct again! And thank you so much for your help.
