disable office (word,exccel) integration

Post by Unilateral » Sat Aug 18, 2018 11:20 am

How do I disable PDF-XChange Editor integration into office programmes, that I could enable it when it is demanded?

In Word 2003 tools - templates and add-ins it shows PXCOfficeAddin5Toolbar.dot checkbox, which appears again after restart even if I uncheck and delete it
and it shows its panel.

there is a X:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 5\Office2PDF5.exe file, I started but could have understood, how to use it?

Hello Unilateral,
If I am understanding correctly, What you are doing should work.

Simply following the steps in this article, but instead unchecking the tickbox, should remove the toolbaraddin from the office product you are currently using.

I would also like some clarification, When you say:

How are you "deleting" it?

Hello,

Maybe the Word-template "PXCOfficeAddin5Toolbar.dot" is present in the Startup-folder of Word 2003.

In Word 2003, you can find the location of this Startup-folder via Tools > Options > File Locations > Startup.

When Word is closed (not active), you must go to the Startup-folder via Windows File Explorer, and rename the *.dot extension from the PXCOffice template to *.bak (or something else). In this way the template will not be loaded when you launch Word.
In case you need the PDF-XChange toolbar, rename back to *.dot.

An other way around is just to change the Startup location in Word itself. So, the template will not be loaded either.

Best regards.

I could find there X:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 5\PXCOfficeAddin5Toolbar.dot
I renamed it and replaced it, but it didn`t make the integration disappear. The pane still appears and its point in the menu presents.

I see, this function only presents in standart version of a printer (pdf editor pro) and is absent in plus version.
What is the sense of this integration: it repeats the print command (ctrl+p), but takes resources from a computer.

How do I switch the option off?
