Re: OLE / DDE Commands

You're right - according to the changelog it was implemented into version 2.0.0038.2.
If you're still using build 0037, maybe you should have a look at the changelog, to see what else has been implemented.

Re: OLE / DDE Commands

Hm, I extracted and attached the corresponding pages from my manual. Maybe you have an older version of the manual!?

In short: To close an already opened pdf use

Code: Select all

PDFXCview.exe /close "PathToPDF\FileName.pdf"
For more options, have a look at the attached file ;)

Changing language doesn't affect browser plugin

Changing the language in PDF-XChange Viewer 2.0 build 42.0 beta doesn't affect the language settings in the browser plugin (I'm using Opera). For now, you have to press Ctrl+K (if you didn't change the default hotkey), to get the preferences dialog if you want to change the plugin's language settings.
