    Saving on the new Adobe Reader X

    S. Chep

      A.  Why is the save button not active on this reader?

      B.  Occasionally when I try to use the File- Save As command I can not access "My Documents"  I receive an error "Access Denied"

      C.  Does anyone else have this problem? 

       

      Overall I do not like this upgraded reader.  Is there a way to revert to the old version?

       

      Thanks for the help

          You can revert to the previous version from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/direct/

           

          After you install it, click "Help" | "Check For Updates". You should be able to see the Reader icon appear in the system tray. When that happens, close Reader 9.4 and launch the updater via that systray icon.

           

          Make sure you uninstall the Reader X first via Add/Remove Programs before you revert to the previous version.

           

          A word of warning if you use Firefox. After you update to v9.4.6 which is the previous secure version, it doesn't update the Firefox plugin. That will still show as 9.4.5.236. That in turn will cause Firefox to report that the version is out of date and a security risk when you run a Plugins Check at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/ The only workaround is to disable it in the Firefox Add-ons manager (press CTRL+SHIFT+A). This means that when you encounter a PDF online, Firefox will display a dialog which gives you the option of either download the file to your local machine, or to open it with the plugin. If you decide to download it, then right click and scan it with your AV before opening it. Obviously, if it's a trustworthy site, you can simply choose to open it in Firefox. Here's a screenshot to show what that dialog looks like.

          Hope this helps.
