Apple has launched the amazing macOS Sierra in this fall. Some of you might have already updated your Mac devices to the latest macOS Sierra. Wondershare PDFelement for Mac is not only compatible with Sierra, but also new High Sierra, since it's one of the best PDF software for Mac users.

However, there is a problem when using Wondershare PDFelemenrt for Mac in macOS Sierra (If you're not using Sierra, but OS X 10.11 and below, then you can skip this article). When users upload multiple files in the program, the name of the files will become unreadable code. Whether the files are PDF or of other formats, this problem will occur when you're batch uploading. The reason why this happens is because the system of macOS Sierra lacks one of the necessary fonts of PDFelement for Mac.
