Re: Renaming a PDF file while viewing it

I just was going to add that, while a "rename open file" feature that doesn't change the file date surely would be a good addition -- the fact that renaming open PDF files is possible alone still is a world class unique feature that is available nowhere else than in PDF-XChange Editor. Thanks to the...
