erroneous time signature errors

The Pdf does not give a time signature. it is 4/4 as far as I see. in a few bars, the underlying time signature becomes 9/8, and this gives a bar duration error, even if nothing in the pdf can lead to any mis-interpretation.  
a ghost silence is added at the end of the bar and can't be selected, deleted etc...
when payed, the silence is actually played which changes the music.
 
Anyone has met this issue, and has a hint towards a solution?
 
The Pdf has 23 pages and is too big to be attached sorry.
 
thanks

Difficult to give opinion without the file. perhaps you could split it and send only only or two pages. I guess you don't have any software able to do this, so I suggest this procedure (don't worry, it's free)
1- Download and install PdfCreator (freeware open source)
2- Open your file with any .pdf software (Acrobat/Adobe reader)
3- Ask for printing the document and choose PdfCreator for printer (actually it's a virtual printer which is going to create a .pdf document)
4- In the printing range, choose only one or two pages.
5- Click on the print (or OK) button. A .pdf file will be generated.
6- Attach the file to your next post.
P.S. You can keep PdfCreator on your system. It's very handy to generate .pdf files from any software.

thanks,  
 
I think I found the error. Attached is  snatch copy of the beginning of the score where everything happens: (explanations in French)
 
1) a hidden text gets decoded and appears in Pdf to Music. It hides the hamp of the the last note of the 1st bar and gives a wrong timing for the first bar,
 
2nd and 3rd bars have the numbering of the chords inversions which is interpreted as a tuplet
 
just putting this back straight fixes the time signature for the whole file.
