PDF preview

Post by doc »

I did a search but saw that this hasn't been asked for a couple years now. The release notes for version 0.9.5.4 say that "Any file that can be previewed in Explorer can now be previewed in Explorer++." But, on my Windows 10 PC, I can't preview PDFs. JPGs, TXTs, etc, preview ok. It's a real PITA to need to open every single PDF with an obscure name I come across to see what's in it. Am I missing something? Oh, and, yes, I can preview PDFs in Windows Explorer.
Thanks in advance!

No one else with this problem? I would think that being able to preview PDFs would be a pretty big deal to a lot of people, so I thought maybe I was missing something.

If the previews are being generated by Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, this should be fixed in the development build soon.

Windows Explorer shows me PDF previews and thumbnails (via Acrobat Professional 2020) but neither the stable nor beta release of Explorer++ is showing PDF previews. Is this still unsupported? Shouldn't Explorer++ be able to leverage the same shell extension that Windows Explorer is using?

Agreed. I need that feature as soon as it is available.
I am waiting for that feature to use Explorer++ as my permanent default explorer.
It is critical for me too as I work with pdf every day.
Thank you for a great program.
