Viewing a PDF in Onshape

chris_ebertchris_ebert Member Posts: 2
My work computer has Adobe Acrobat DC loaded on it and I can view PDF's right in Onshape. However, when I go home to my browser on my home computer with PDF X-Change viewer loaded I am not able to preview PDF's without downlading them. Is there a setting some where I need to change? Thanks in advance for any help regarding this.

    Adding a pdf plug in to your browser should help. Adobe usually adds itself when you install the reader

    There is also a specific option in Chrome that either downloads or displays pdfs - google it.
