Outlook question / Preview Pane

Post by hdservices »


By default when we select a PDF attachment in Outlook, it'll open for us in PDF-Xchange Editor preview pane.
Then it's by default showing a hand, but I would like to select text by default there.

Is that possible to change this setting also for Outlook preview pane by PDF-Xchange Editor?

Hello, hdservices

The Preview pane is simply a viewing mechanism, most document content, including text, is not loaded, and you are simply viewing a thumbnail of the pages. As such, it is not possible to use the select text too, and even if it was, there would be no text present to select...

If you need to select text within the file, you will need to open it within the software.
