    Hi
    how do I set my browser (firefox mainly, sometimes IE) to open pdf documents on pdf x-change instead of adobe?
    Thanks

    In PDF_XChange viewer: Edit / Preferences / File Associations, under which you will find options for making PDF_XChange the default pdf viewer.
    For your browser (K-Mel here, not Firefox, but I suspect there are similarities), under "advanced preferences" Browsing / File Handling, there are numerous file associations (including pdf handling) which are configurable.
    I'm sure a Firefox devotee will chime in here soon.

    The "Display PDF in Browser" feature isn't avaliable yet.

    Like said in their support: "browser plugin still not released since it causes some troubles with viewer's ActiveX control."

    In the near future, I guess...

    Doesn't matter... main goal is, that it displays pdf's with just a click, outside browser, in x-change. No need to download and then opening.
    Now I can remove adobe from my computer...:D
