The printer cannot be used by others on the network." How do I get rid of this error? I don't need to share this printer, if it was even possi...

Re: Rename open file

Hi PdfSnooper, I think the concerns is more about issues that can arrise when a file has more than one application with a handle on it. A file open in the Viewer can also be open in a preview handle, and email client etc.S Well if you want to invent reasons for failure you can. [/quote] As I said h...

It's funny, because my text editor supports renaming the current file. My If its just one document, sure you could 'save as' but when i get a ton of scanned files it would only add to the hell by having twice the amount of documents.

Please add rename of document

Please add a way to RENAME a document whilst it is open in the Pdf-xchange viewer - it would so help my work flow when i have 50 documents open at once (and it would be nice if you could raise the limit of documents open at once as well)

Re: Can you share the printer?

Hi, No - to ensure licensing integrity PDF-XChange Whatever that crap means. is designed to act only as a standalone printer I wanted to use it as a standalone printer. and must be installed and licensed on each workstation. Don't have any workstations. But the answer was no, get lost. Got it.

Can you share the printer?

Can you share this "printer" via the network, so a machine printing somewhere else on the network will produce a PDF file on the "printer" machine?

Can you add icons to toolbars?

I'm customizing my toolbars.

The command "Crop Pages..." doesn't have an icon, so just the text shows up on the toolbar.

Is it possible for me to add an icon to this command?

Windows 7 explorer not showing filetype?

Hi, I'm seeing a bit of oddity. In Windows 7 I have set PDF files up to be opened with PDF-XChange of course. However when I look in windows explorer, in details view (ie where it shows name, date size) the "Type" column doesn't show "PDF" as i would expect, but it shows the file patch to PDF-XChang...

Re: Linking: Relative paths to other documents?

Could you zip up and add an example pdf for us to take a look at? It worries me you ask that. Surely its the Program which doesn't do this, and the actual PDF is not relevant? It could be any PDF - I can do a "New Document/From Blank Page" and the problem persists. Perhaps I should outline each ste...

Yes it's possible, when making the links - create them relative, and they should stay like this. But how do I do that?? I can't write in the "file name" field, but have to use the file browser, and it always inserts the full path to the document. When you hover over a link in our Viewer you will se...

When you link from one document to another, isn't it possible somehow to use a relative path instead of an absolute path?

Hi PdfSnooper, you can already copy/paste comments with their text style as well as the object style like fill colour, border thickness etc. How?

Hi,

I scanned a piece of white paper. And the scanned picture looks white, but when I convert it to a pdf file it has a blueish tinge??

Anyone has an idea how that happens?
