Re: PDF Preview Suddenly Lost

Hello Highend, Thanks for your reply you always come through for us! Funny just before I saw your reply I solved it by chance -- just uninstalled my PDF Xchange Editor software and reinstalled it -- preview in XYplorer works perfectly now. I might have lied in my first post, I think around the time ...

PDF Preview Suddenly Lost

Hi All, I've searched and read posts about losing the PDF preview feature, mine disappeared suddenly without any updates happening. I use PDF X-Change Editor full version 8, uninstalled Adobe Reader (don't need it) and tried everything on the FAQ "XYplorer does not preview PDFs. What can I do about ...

Re: How to view cad files

Hi Notts, We're in the same boat looking for a CAD handler to preview them in XYplorer, so if you come up with anything then please let me know, and I'll do the same. I'm willing to pay a reasonable amount for a good viewer with some simple tools, but I don't need a full CAD program for my work and ...

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hello Highend, Thanks for your quick reply and good to hear from you, you are a big help on the XYplorer forum, very glad that you're here. Ahhh, I remember looking at QuickViewPlus some year ago but never bought it, at that price I'm glad I didn't. Makes me think it's owned by Adobe and that next y...

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hi Donald, Sorry for missing your message,thanks for following up with me. Anyway no luck so far but I had to drop the search for awhile, and I see another user Notts asking about it too. Seems that Highend knows about this and can evaluate which program could be a handler for CAD files. I would be ...

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Looks like impossible to do in an affordable/simple manner, a real surprise knowing how capable XYplorer is to preview other file types.
Donald, how can I put this on the wish list for the future?
Regards, Kevin

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hi Jupe, Thanks for your reply and information, I would try it but buying Autocad is more than I really need, I'm not doing engineering just have need to view CADs at times to pull out info. I'll search around some more and maybe get lucky, please let me know if you come across anything that might b...

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hello Highend, Thanks for your reply, so I need a preview handler to preview the CADs, but I can't find anything like this searching the 'net, do you have a suggestion? Only post here is the fellow trying to view Solidworks files but not sure if that handler would cover CAD files as well. Not clear ...

Re: Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hello Highend, Thanks for your reply and info, I looked at Quick View Plus and it looks comprehensive but seems to be a standalone program and pricey too. I was wondering about viewing natively in XYplorer, buying another program I'd like to avoid if possible, or I can use a free dwg viewer or the A...

Preview CAD Files .dwg & .dxf

Hi All, I imagine this has been asked and answered here but I just can't find it myself searching the forum. Any configuration, plug-in or tweak to view 2D CAD file types in the preview pane and floating preview pane? Just for simple quick viewing to zoom in and scroll around. I suppose not but just...

Re: PDF Preview Not Working, PDFs Preview Now

Good Morning Highend, OK I installed the Editor version using the .msi installer and now the pdfs show perfectly in the preview pane -- thanks for that, it was a bit confusing as there is a free basic PDFExchange version and a free (non-license) version of the Editor. I wonder why this isn't include...

Re: PDF Preview Not Working, PDF-XChange Printer

Hi Highend,
Yes I should have been more specific, I installed PDF-XChange Printer Lite V6 . . . . maybe the free version is not going to do it, perhaps it requires the paid version?
Thanks, Kevin

Re: PDF Preview Not Working After Install of PDF Exchange

Hi Highend, I finally installed the PDF Exchange software but still don't see any pdfs in the preview pane. I don't see any settings in the software related to viewing, any recommendation or setting that you know of? Would be handy to have, the image file pop-up viewer is great to have and something...

Re: PDF Preview Not Working, Other Files OK

Hello Highend, Thanks very much for your quick response, I'll download that from Tracker software and give it a try. Funny I could preview pdfs in the past but I haven't had the preview window open in a good while until tried to sort through a gob of pdf files today. I have the same pdf software ins...
