I have installed the latest versions of Acrobat Readers 9 and 10 on Mac OSX 10.7.2 Lion.
I have used several methods to try and set Reader 9.5 as the default application to open PDF files (using 'Get Info / Change All, Open With, and so on) but it always reverts to Acrobat 10 as the default application. The only way to stop this is to move Acrobat 10 to the trash and then set Reader 9 as the default. But as soon as I move Acrobat 10 back into the applications folder then the default opening application reverts to 10 again.
Does anyone know what is causing this behaviour and how to stop it, other than permanently deleting Acrobat Reader 10 ?
A very good question.
I first installed Acrobat 10 and found that it has a few flaws, in comparison to 9. So I installed 9, this version working better fo me. And I thought to myself, well it would be useful to keep both versions on my computer in case I encounter any compatibility problem in the future. For years I have kept, and used successfully, multiple versions of Acrobat Reader on my Mac. No problem until now …
BTW, (OT) why can't I spell check my pots anymore ? No automatic spell as you tipe and no button to do same. Wierd.
