After selecting PDFCreator to print a document then saving it to a file location, the program always asks what program to open the PDF file with. I always select Adobe Reader, and always have the box checked to always use this program. I also have PDF assigned to Adobe Reader in file associations (Windows 7 Home Premium OS). However the dialog box comes up every single time. Is there a way to "set it and forget it"?
this problem is not caused by PDFCreator, but by something else on your system.
Maybe try Adobe support for this problem, I am afraid we can´t really help you with this.
If you save your documents manually, you could use PDFArchitect for making sure the PDFs are generated correctly. If you check "Edit PDF files with PDFArchitect" you won´t get that dialog box.
PS: This only happens in the print (file creation) process. It does not happen when I double click on a saved file. Because PDF is set to Adobe Reader, double clicking on a saved file opens the document immediately in Reader.
is it vital for you to open the PDF file directly after it was created?
If not you can uncheck the checkbox "After (auto) saving open the file with the default program".
Thank you, Robin. That is an option. However, I almost always want to make sure the PDF was created correctly. Often there are formatting issues with web sites and such. It's much harder to ■■■ into directories to find the PDF than to open it, check it and close it.
Thanks for your suggestion.
We’re experiencing the very same issue.
Printing to the PDFCreator printer, doesn’t open the document in acrobat. Double-click on a PDF file does open it though.
