Need help using this PDF Session utility

Sat Aug 26, 2017 12:49 pm

Does anyone know how to save a session with this utility? It's called "PDF Session for PDF-XChange Viewer." I'm using PDF-XChange portable 2.5 (322.7).

It looks like it might be a useful utility if I could only figure out how to save sessions. Native "Restore Last Session" is disabled per instructions.

Hi Ted,

Thanks for the email - I'm not sure how those screen-shots were taken, but that's not a feature of the Viewer, nor has it ever been. I'd recommend that you take a look at the Editor, as it does offer session management and is also the Viewer's replacement:

HTH!
If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards

Hey Will, I have PDF-XChange Editor Plus 6.0318.0 but I didn't realize it has session management. I'd like to save multiple different sessions, can you do that with Editor? If so I can't figure out how. Maybe I need to update to a newer version?

Thanks. :)

It seems indeed that you will need a newer version.

Managing multiple sessions in PDF-XChange Editor was first introduced with version 6.0.320.0:
https://www.tracker-software.com/produc ... #6.0.320.0

Version 6.0.318.0 was released on 13-09-2016.
So if you have a license for that one, including maintenance through 13-09-2017, then I suppose you can best update to the latest 6.0.322.7
https://www.tracker-software.com/produc ... nge-editor

Best regards.

Thanks for that. I looked at the version history but I guess I overlooked it. I got updated but apparently saving a session doesn't save any search results associated with it, that's the main thing I wanted it for. :(

Oh well, maybe it'll get added down the road sometime.

Indeed, Advanced Criteria that have been saved with a unique name, do not seem to be saved within a Session in PDF-XChange Editor.

Maybe Tracker Support can record your request for consideration during their next meeting with Tracker Development ?

Best regards.

Hi Willy, Ted,

I have indeed written this down - and will bring it up for discussion in next week's meeting!

Regards,
Stefan
