Choose the external editor


I open a pdf file with option “Open in external editor” and scrivener opens this file with adobe acrobat reader, however I need to edit this file with another pdf editor software so I’m wonder if it’s possible to set-up scrivener in order to open a file with a specific software, es. instead of “acrobat reader” with “PDF xchange viewer”


At the moment there’s not a way to set this; Scrivener just has the file open in whatever is the default program assigned to that file type according to your Windows settings. So you could change what program is associated with PDFs for your user account, if you liked, but you can’t yet just select from a list or specify a particular (non-defaut) program from within Scrivener.
