Null reference exception on PdfViewerControl.SaveDocument

I'm sometimes getting a null reference exception when calling pdfViewerControl.SaveDocument(). When I exit of the pdf view, I want to save any mark-ups that I've added. So, in the button handler I make a call to pdfViewerControl.SaveDocument(). It seems I'm only having the issue on Android. Sometimes, it works fine, and other times I get a System.NullReferenceException with a source of "SyncFusion.Pdf.Portable."

Here's the StackTrace:
