Is it possible to get rid of the Open in PDF-XChange Editor command in the context menu ?

When right-clicking on certain files under Windows Explorer, the context menu shows an Open in PDF-XChange Editor command. Is it possible to get rid of it ?

Re: Can one merge several documents into one with the free version ? SOLVED

Though you do know the use of these features without a license will water mark the document. Right? Please make a copy first... Yes, thank you for reminding me.

Uncheck "Hide all licensed features from toolbars and menus" and you should be good to go.
Thank you.

I thought I would get an email when an answer would be posted to my question, but I somehow missed the correct setting.

Re: Can one merge several documents into one with the free version ? SOLVED

Thanks for the super-fast response, that's very helpful, I'm working on an urgent document ! The right-click option works great -- as long as one accepts the watermarks. However, I can't find the File / New document menu. I use the classical UI. Or am I not supposed to see it, since I have the free ...

I have scanned a paper document. This produced one pdf file per page. I would now like to combine them all in a single pdf file. Is that possible with the free version ?

I can't find it anymore. In v.6, you could select an area of your document, and the zoom would automatically adjust to fit it. It was extremely fast and very convenient.

When I use the Highlight function, I get a mini-icon above the highlighted line of text, like this :

It partly hides the text in many cases and is very annoying. Is this expected behaviour ? Is there any way to prevent it ?
