If you are using Foxit instead of Adobe Reader to open pdf-files you can use this Preview Handler to preview PDF-attachments in Outlook You have set Foxit as default PDF viewer on your system (How to set Foxit as Default PDF Reader), but running into the following problem with Outlook. Problem. In Outlook , when you select a PDF that is attached to an email to preview the page content, you may receive the following error message.
Is this correct and if so; How can I save emails as pdf-files anyway? However, there are still several ways to achieve this. Windows 10 Are you using Windows 10? Adobe Acrobat This is probably the most flexible but also the most expensive solution but Adobe Acrobat is of course the standard when it comes down to creating, editing and managing pdf-file. Adobe Acrobat comes with a dedicated Outlook add-in which lets you convert a single message or selected messages to a pdf-file, append an already existing pdf-file or convert an entire folder at once. There are also many options available to set the compatibility, whether or not to include the attachments in the pdf-file and configure security, encryption and password settings. Another option is to automatically convert your new messages to pdf-files for archiving purposes on a set interval.
When the PDF preview handler has the focus it draws an ugly dotted-line border around its toolbar at the bottom. It looks like it thinks it's in ActiveX design mode or something. Zoomed-in screenshot. Not a bug but it'd be nice if it had a simple text-search feature, please. Well done for releasing Adobe Reader X in a state where the preview handler's mousewheel and scrollbar do not work properly. Outstanding work, as always!
Directory Opus uses my bundled plugin as a bridge for various third-party viewers, including Adobe Reader if it's installed. I made earlier versions use the full Adobe Reader by default. I had to write a tobit ActiveX proxy process to make the Adobe Reader and Flash viewers work within bit Opus. A lot of effort due to Adobe being so lax at producing bit components.
Adobe Reader was originally used instead of the preview handler because of various issues with the preview handler.
Then Windows 7 came out and Adobe Reader embedding was completely broken. That could be Microsoft's fault but my bet is it's Adobe's. So I worked around the preview handler issues, including the main one this page is about, and that is now the default in Opus.
I wish I could bill Adobe for my time fixing their mess. The ridiculous thing is that whenever we've tried to officially inform Adobe of bugs in their code like blindly calling through a null pointer after a failed QueryInterface , bugs which we've found and worked around for ourselves but which may cause problems for other people, they've asked us to pay them for a support contract.
Who is supporting whom here, exactly? And yet, I keep giving them so much money.
What is wrong with that company? Okay, they didn't write iTunes or Lotus Notes, but they're getting close Personally, I find Adobe's font rendering easier to read , despite my other complaints.
Thank you: Writing of the thumbnail fix was funded by someone who wishes to remain anonymous but still deserves thanks, not least of which for allowing the fix to be given away for free to everyone else. The post and discussion about the original version of this fix at Ed Bott's Windows Expertise unearthed further useful information and caveats on different Windows installs.
That information has been incorporated into the fix tool and this page. Credit to Ed and the commenters on his blog for their help. Winfried Pohl gets the credit for discovering the extra step needed to fix the preview handler under bit Office beta. Thanks, Winfried! Thanks to Alex Bantzhaff for getting in touch after he noticed that the installer for Adobe Reader 9. Adobe didn't mention it in the change log, let alone credit me for finding it, but at least they finally fixed it.
Maybe they'll fix the thumbnails next year?
My fix tool will deal with this and clean things up. Thanks to all the people who took the time to e-mail me to say thanks themselves, and for confirming that the fixes worked for them. I have some stuff researched…but anyone interested in providing that host is appreciated. Time is not on my side for that one. If you have the expertise and can write the unmanaged COM code, give him a shout.

I've been fed up for a while with Adobe.
Check the page: Wednesday, February 28, 9: Foxit is faster than, well insert your own analogy here tasteful or otherwise , but it looks like if a page has the viewer embedded as an ActiveX control and you can't download the file, you're sunk. Is that really the case? Either way, I'll probably use Foxit from here on out. Thanks for the tip. Wednesday, February 28, Can we get a little professional courtesy here?
