Explorer Preview

Hi

Just wondered if file preview was 'on the cards' for the Windows Explorer task bar?

Well done with build 16!
Best regards

Hi Barry,

we will be offering a directory file preview in Explorer - but I suspect this is not quite what you mean - could you please expand a little ?

Thanks

Hi

If 'the other viewer' is installed and you click on a PDF icon in Explorer then, and providing the PDF file has no security, you see a small thumbnail preview of the PDF file at the bottom of the file tasks column on the LH side of the Explore window.

Do you see what I mean?

But, in case you don't see the attached screenshot

By the way, I know the screenshot shows the file as being a PDF-Xchange Viewer document, but the thumbnail preview only works for me if I also install AR8.

Understood,

Our ActiveX does something similar - except it will also show a thumbnail of every PDF file in the folder.

HTH
