In line PDF viewing disabled? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Is there a way to disable OW loading and viewing PDF's and have it download PDF's to disk like 5.5.4 pre?? Even better a unit in the app which allows us to set specific file types like PDF to download an automatically open in nominated application such as Preview in this case?

Thanks
 
Bump. I also can't figure out how to change the default and have pdfs open in Preview

(5.6 alpha)

Same here. I seem to remember a Terminal command?

Regardless I hate PDFs opening directly in OW.
 
Is this it? I think you need to replace the false with true to disable it. Note, if you have Adobe Reader 8 installed, you will have to disable its plugin (which can be done in OmniWeb Preferences) as it now supports OmniWeb.

defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool false

Code:
defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 WebKitOmitPDFSupport -bool false

N.B. I got the command from this thread - go there for the explanation as to why you need to use true to disable it (which seems counterintuitive):

Thanks for the tip about the Adobe plugin. It's pretty nice, actually, I might start using PDFs this way now.
