    With Yosemite on my Macbook Air, I haven't been able to get a PDF file to show up in the Recent Items menu. I was successful with a Word file, but despite what I've read about how to make it work with a PDF, I'm having no luck. I tried opening the Acrobat Reader application and then using its File menu to open the file. Nope. I also tried navigation to the file through the Finder. Nope.

    Any other ideas? So far, I don't think much of Yosemite. :confused:

    Try opening your PDF with Preview, then see if Recent Items lists it.

    Viewing the PDF in Preview worked!

    Yes, the suggestion did get the document added to the Recent Items menu. I hope Apples doesn't think this Yosemite "feature" is an improvement.
