    Lately when I open a PDF link in Safari it opens it in Safari rather than in Preview. I only get a portion of the document as well. How do I open the document in preview?

    if you have the pdf plug-in installed, safari will show the entire pdf in its own window. if you don't have the pdf plug-in, but have set quicktime to handle the pdf mime type, you'll get a preview of the first page when you click a link to a pdf.

    Yes, I had the Quicktime MIME settings set to work with PDF files. I unchecked that option and all is well. Thank you for your help

    I like the PDF plug in and it's ability to view the pdf in the browswer...but I cannot get it to print the pdf from the browser. All I get are blank pages. I have to download it to print. I wish the maker of the plugin would fix this. I have the most recent version and it still won't work. Better yet it would be nice if safari had this capability build in.
