Re: Help!!! Toolbars and Ribbon tabs have all disappeared!

That is true... but a hint in the UI would have saved me some aggravation.

Hey, thanks!
That did it.
How about making this more discoverable?

Re: Document "open action" not available for editing

1) Maybe it is via a "Page Open" action that the Print dialog box is showing up. To verify this: - Activate the Thumbnails pane and also activate the Properties pane. - Then click on the first page and look in its properties for the Page Open action. 2) Via File > Save as Optimized ..., turn OFF al...

Document "open action" not available for editing

Why is there no way to edit the "Document Open" action? I received a PDF that automatically opens the print dialog when opened. I cannot find any way to edit or remove the action. In Acrobat - for some reason - it is also not available under "Document Actions" - which only the includes the same list...

Color management Issue

Hi,
I am having an issue with color being displayed wrongly.
I have attached a minimal sample PDF, my monitor color profile. My color Management Settings, and a side by side comparison of PDF Xchange & Adobe.

Re: Why doesn't hand tool select?

Hi, Thanks for your reply!

Why doesn't hand tool select?

Why is there no option for using hand tool to select?
It's an option in Adobe Reader. It's an option in Foxit Reader. When will it arrive to PDF Xchange? I would find it very useful. It's a pain to keep changing tools.

Re: Printing settings reset with every update

Hi,

My above post was refering to changes made in Printing Preferences in the control panel. Even those changes to not get saved in the default profile!

Off course I agree that it should be possible to make one off changes for a specific print job without saving the change in the profile.

Re: build 327.0 text rendering

Not only does it bring Editor's rendering a bit closer to Acrobat's rendering (reference) I don't think the PDF spec enforces any specific rendering implementation and whether hinting should be used or not, therefore I don't think that being closer to Acrobat's rendering is an objective gain.

Re: build 327.0 text rendering

I think I found now the culprit
It seems that "Preference->Page Display->Rendering...->Text Hinting" when set to "Auto" now defaults to hinting "enabled" while I am pretty sure that in the past I didn't have hinting enabled. I don't recall changing the settings manually.
