Saving file as a .pdf launches Adobe Reader when I don't want it too.

Like the subject says. I know there is a place to check or uncheck whether you want Adobe Reader to launch after you have saved a file to .pdf but for the life of me I can't remember where that is located. Can someone help? Thanks.

Hi terryp, 

As odd as it sounds, this is controlled in the publish options of the DWF file. Go to Export > Export to DWF and unceck the Display Published File in Viewer option found at the bottom of the General tab. This option controls the PDF viewer as well as the DWF.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis
