how to preview files without certain programs installed?

Post by legion1978 » 22 Nov 2005 20:17

i wonder if theres a way to preview some type of files, like .doc or .pdf without havin installed the actual programs (ms word or acrobat reader),since i use openoffice and foxit reader.

Well, Foxit is playing nicely with Tracker for Preview of pdf files.

I have the Foxit PDF reader as my default reader. If I preview a PDF document in TrackerV3 it uses Foxit and not Acrobat (which I also have installed). I don't know about DOC files since I use MS Office.

I know that previous versions of Foxit didn't integrate that good as default reader. I use the latest vesion 1.3 build 1111, witch works ok.
Check your version, maybe a upgrade will do the trick.

I created a smart little redirecter on trackerv3.com, all old forum links should work now.
