Image from store Open in PDF Reader
Description from store The "Open in PDF viewer" extension opens PDF files directly in your favorite external PDF viewer application. To use the extension, right-click on a PDF link and select the "Open in PDF viewer" item. The extension downloads the PDF file in your default downloads directory and then executes the external command to open the downloaded file with the default PDF viewer (e.g. Adobe Acrobat Reader or FoxIt PDF reader). Note that to execute an OS-level command, you need to install a native client. Native client installation guide appears on the first usage. Features: 1. Open PDF files from right-click context menu 2. Transfer already opened PDF files to the external PDF viewer by pressing the browser's action button 3. Detect PDF links and open them with left-click 4. Open the external PDF viewer with a user-defined delay 5. Supports most common PDF viewers Change Logs: 0.1.1: It is now possible to define left-click open in default PDF reader from the options page. If this mode is enabled, the extension blocks the default action when a link with the PDF mime type is the target. 0.1.2: It is possible to ask the extension to send the PDF URL to the external executable. Make sure your PDF Reader can open remote URLs before enabling this option 0.1.9: You can now run the external executable with a delay. This helps your antivirus application to validate the PDF file before this extension opens it with the external PDF viewer.

  • (2023-08-08) Mansooreh Boostanpour: hi and thanks, Note, draw free form has very bad angle and appearance of the pencil is not elegant . and for me I think this new version is a bit complicated and at the same time simpler and better
  • (2022-11-26) Legacy Tuthau-Zand: Does absolutely nothing, does not appear in right-click menu.
  • (2022-07-18) Wayne Mullen: Absolutely Useless. Can't sign, amend, save or download. As with most Adobe products a bloated waste of user unfriendly buggy space.
  • (2020-12-15) Nocturnal Owl Digitalist: Doesnt work in latest version of chromium browsers like edge, kinza, cent, opera, vivaldi and others. Also it doesnt take as pdf links from sites or searches to view them directly into the browser without or before download. I hope the developer works on this. Also I would dev to make a better way of contacting for users who have bugs or issues or suggestions as I am having issues with user agent extension also as some sites fail to see the user agent set and see the default one. Thanks.
