regarding the "open recent file" menu item in the File menu.
1) should have a way to "clear recent items". Most software solves this by appending an item "Clear Recent Items" to the bottom of the list of aliases that springs forth from the menu.
2) Further, in the preferences it should be able to be set to 0 to prevent the function entirely, not just natural #s 1-99. This is the case in Windows Adobe REader, and on the Mac it was the case the last time I was able to check, but due to the bugs in 9.1.x regarding the ability to handle a case-sensitive file system I haven't been able to even open the preferences on the mac for a while.
Adobe software is not supported on the case sensitive file system. Apple only recommends the file system for OS X server and even in that case they do not recommend it for the boot volume (though it is supported).
Thanks for your quick reply.
Please note that this issue: "open recent file" menu item that is not clearable, nor is the system preference able to be set to retain 0 files,
has absolutely nothing to do with the file system issue. It is just a design choice (or oversight or bug depending on your point of view).
It is an issue of security/privacy to not have the Reader keep a list of recently viewed files, or to at least allow the user to clear the list.
Thanks again for your time, interest, and speedy reply.
