Re: set standard-printer different from Windows Standard printer

Thanks Daniel

it seem to be OK. Just to be precise for other users:

When you have a printer with serverpath, like "\\myserver\myprinter", you have to type it with escaped backslashes:

\\\\myserver\\myprinter

I can not confirm the "case sensitive" clause - I tried "mYprINTer" and it worked too.

set standard-printer different from Windows Standard printer

In my Windows settings, I defined "PDF-XChange" printer" for all my usual software. So it is also the standard-printer for PDF-Editor. The problem is - when I opened a PDF in Editor, then I usually don't want to print to PDF, I want to print to paper. So the question is: How to set a standard-printe...

Annotations - exact measuring in Ortho mode?

Hi,
sometimes I use the Annotations for measuring, and the baseline should be exactly horizontal or vertical. In some CAD-software there is a so-called Ortho-mode to move the mouse exactly horizontal or vertical.

Is this also possible in Editor?

Re: File rename: handling of extension

thanks, but I don't really want to modify or change extension; I only wanted to suggest that a separated - and greyed out - file-extension would clearly show what the software does (and what you explained).

File rename: handling of extension

The "file rename" function has a feature which is handy, but maybe confusing: It adds (nearly) always the extension "pdf" Example: I have "hello.pdf" and rename it to .. - "test": It is named to "Test.pdf" - "new.txt" -->> new.txt.pdf - "foo.pdf" -->> "foo.pdf" The problem is: the user does not see ...

that's a good solution for temporary, manual synchronization.

Spell check: own wordlist selectable?

The Spell Check has also a "Custom wordlist" where I can add and define my special words.

In other programs there is this feature too, but I can select the list like "c:\mydata\my_words.dic" and can use and modify it from different software.

Can it be defined in PDF Edit too?
