    I installed Adobe Reader 8.0.x for the Intel Mac. I set it up as my default pdf app on my Mac. Eve after i did that, pdf document's open by default in Preview and not Adobe Reader. I even installed DefaultApps and double checked the extensions were linked to the Adobe Reader, and they are, but still all pdf docs open in Preview. It's just so irritating...any help guys..??:confused:

    Cool thanks..!! :D

    I just cannot figure out why this doesn't happen automatically. :rolleyes: I still have to figure out why other pdf's don't change their deault icons from preview to adobe reader. But all of them open in AR , which is good news! :)
