Hello,

after Re-Installing an older version of Illustrator, all file icons for PDF files are changed to Illustrator PDF icons. Though Preview is set as standard application for the PDF file type, the icons still remain Adobe icons. How can I change this back to Mac OSX standard icons?

Thank you

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Looks like Illustrator is set as the default application for PDF. You may change it by following these steps:

 

  • Control-click a PDF file and choose Get Info from the pop-up menu.
  • In the dialog box that appears, click the Open With section to expand it.
  • Click the dropdown and choose Acrobat/ Adobe Reader from the list.
  • Under Use This Application To Open All Documents Like This One, click Change All.
  • Click Continue in the confirmation dialog that appears next.

 

Regards,

Srishti

Hi Srushti,

 

I am experincing the same issue as the original poster. He had said the Preview was set as the default application, mine is too and no matter how many times I perform the standard procedure for changing default applications on Mac, the icon for all PDF's on my system remains the Illustrator icon.

 

It is clearly an issue with using an older/better version of Illustrator.

 

Cheers
