While it's nice to have a default PDF viewer in Debug mode when there is no system viewer installed, it's a retrograde step when you do have your own viewer. The default viewer initially presents a very small image and takes time to zoom in which is irritating. If we could configure the intial view to be full screen that would be better.

Please can we have an option similar to the ability to choose our own text editor to select whether we use the built-in viewer or the stystem default (such as Acrobat or Acrobat viewer).

Adrian,

I know that in PlanetPress Search, the option to open with your default pdf viewer will be available in a future release, but I agree that having it for the PDF Viewer in Workflow would also be useful.

As for zooming, here's a trick I've found out while looking at the documentation. If you hold down CTRL(the left one), and use the mouse wheel, you can instantly zoom in or out. It's a lot faster than manually selecting the zoom or entering a zoom value.

Regards,
Raphaël Lalonde Lefebvre

Hi Raphael,

I had discovered the CTRL and mouse wheel but it is still just too inconvenient.

I assume that posting on this forum will result in requests being considered by Philippe for future versions?

Regards,

Adrian

You assume correctly.
