PDF Reader

Post by pinsal57 » Mon Feb 15, 2016 11:50 am

I prefer my chosen PDF reader over the built in PDF reader in Slimjet. Disabling the plugin doesn't seem to stop Slimjet from opening the PDF. How can I hand over a PDF click to PDF XChange Viewer instead? Thanks.

Hello

• put this in your browser address bar, slimjet://plugins

• Click the Disable toggle just below "Chromium PDF Viewer", after that it should say "Enable", if it already is disabled it will show "Enable" and you won't see "Disable"

• Look then for your preferred PDF reader and toggle it to be enabled (it will say, "Disable" when it is enabled)

• In that same place where your preferred PDF reader is listed, check the box that allows the plugin to always run
For those of you who wear aluminum foil hats, the voices lie, don't believe them!

Hi,

That works for me. However, now I am asked each time I want to open a PDF file to allow execution of the PDF XChange Viewer plugin. Is there a way to save this permission permanently?

Best regards
Oliver
