    Right or Ctrl click on any PDF file and select Get Info. In the Open With section, select Adobe Acrobat, or Other.. if Acrobat does not appear in the menu. If you have to use Other.. locate Acrobat. Then click on the Change All button once selected.

    Hold down the Option key when you open the file. Open With is in the Finder's File Menu.

    Edit: Or what he said ^ :eek:

    Right click on any .pdf -> Get Info -> In the Info window is a section marked "Open With," change it from Preview to Acrobat Pro then click "Change All."

    This thread title is misleading - I was expecting to tell somehow how to make a PDF file from any program by printing to PDF.
