Windows expert needs mac help

Hey guys,

I have a user on osx running acrobat reader 5.  When she opens her pdfs the window opens to full screen.  she wants them to open to 1/2 screen.  I don't mean the size of the document inside the window, that i have changed with the options.  I mean the actual window.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

I'm not sure how to have a window open into 1/2 size automatically, but you can resize the  window by dragging the right corner in. Kind of like you resize a window on windows from the side or corner.

yeah it resizes easily, but it's the boss :)  So it needs to open at a size not so big as full screen..

change the settings so PDF files open in Apple's Preview Application by default. On my machine at least, the windows open at a size so they just accomodate the page size.

goodluck

Option Click a PDF document and you can choose to open with just like on a PC... choose "Other..." then choose in the application viewer the "Preview" application, check the "Always Open With" check box before clicking "Open" and your good to go! Welcome to Mac! LOL

Oops, sorry, it's "Control" click the document, I have a Mighty Mouse so it's been a while since I have had to "Control" click an item on my Mac!

This is the most obvious way to change the settings to open PDF files with Preview, not with Acrobat:

Select a PDF document (single click)
Choose Get Info from the File Menu
In the Info window, click to show the "Open with" pane.
Choose the application you want to use from the pop-up menu.
If you want all documents that have the same file type as this one to open with the same application, click Change All.

goodluck
