PDF opens in Preview over Acrobat

Hi All,

I am having an on-going issue where when I open or export from InDesign etc. the PDF opens in Preview every time. I have gone into file info and set Acrobat as default but it still defaults to Preview. Not the end of the world but frustrating nonetheless. Another thing I noticed is that when I right click and go to open in Acrobat - Acrobat is not suggested and I need to go searching for it.

Any help much appreciated,

Dave

@daveb75792932, I believe this is an Apple setting and Apple is not respecting your user preferences about how to open a PDF file.

I'm sorry for asking an obvious question, but after setting the default to Acrobat, did you also click on the Change All button?
