Photo Preview of PDF files doesn't work with Bluebeam installed

Running with PW SS4 .590 or PW CE .67, with Acrobat Reader 11 installed, PhotoPreview of PDF files works properly.

Once I installed Bluebeam 2015.6 - standard as a PDF editor (Acrobat Reader 11 remains on the machine), Bluebeam becomes the app for PhotoPreview and the PDF files do not preview properly.

How do I set the PhotoPreview back to Acrobat Reader?

  • Andy, Have you tried changing the windows setting Start Menu> right pane > Default Programs >"Associate a File Type with a Specific Program " > Highlight .PDF > select "Change Program" button ?

       
    This is a test

  • Yes. I have tried setting the default App to acrobat reader both in Windows and setting the default app to Acrobat reader the ProjectWise association.

    The PhotoPreview works fine using Acrobat until I install Bluebeam. Once Bluebeam is installed it becomes the default PhotoPreview app for PDF files.

    You should be able to download a trial from Bluebeam to replicate the same. There must be a setting somewhere that I can use to force the PDF photo previewer back to Acrobat.

    I've tried/replicated this behavior with 8.11.590 and 10.0.01.67.

    To replicate - remove Bluebeam if installed.
    Install Acrobat Reader I used v11.
    Install ProjectWise.

    Check PhotoPreview for a PDF.
    Install Bluebeam 2015.6 review standard.
    Check PhotoPreview for a PDF again.
