Acrobat 8.1 works in OW Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hey All,
Just a quick note that Acrobat 8.1 now works with Omniweb. You need to manually enable the plugin and then restart Omniweb after installing Acrobat 8.1 or reader 8.1.

Great news! To those trying this out, make sure you enable the Adobe Viewer in the plug-ins preference pane if you've previously disabled it.

You also may need to turn off built-in PDF support if you enabled it with this terminal command:

defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool TRUE

and set aside other PDF viewer plug-ins if you have any installed.
w00t! working here!
I'm not sure I care anymore. I put pdf files in my "safe" files list on OW, and I rather enjoy having all of Previews nice features available to me instantly after download is complete.

Plus, I think there is one very bad feature in Adobe Reader 8.1. At least on my Windoze machine at work, I can no longer select text as graphics. So, it is no longer possible for me to highlight a nicely rendered equation and paste it into another application as a graphic. This is a major drag since Windoze systematically butchers everything in clipboard, especially equations.

So, I still vote fore Preview over Adobe's increasingly creeping bloatware.

But, yes, it's good to know. :)

Hurrah! I have to have Acrobat Pro installed anyway, so this is a nice bugfix. Thanks for your care and attention to detail, Adobe.

I totally don't mean that in a sarcastic way. Really.
