Search or Ask a Question

This is a keyword search that looks for matching articles that contain one or more words specified by a user in articles’ tags, title and content. The search results are sorted by the frequency of words found in articles and weighted to give preference to tags, title and article content in that order. Words from the article tags rate higher than words from the article title and words from the article title rate higher than words from the article content. The logical operators e.g. + ! || && etc or quotes to search for a phrase are disregarded.

When I try to open a PDF form in PDF-XChange Viewer, I get a warning that says that I need a new version of Adobe Reader. I don't want to use Adobe Reader. Why can't PDF-XChange Viewer open my file?



 The PDF Form may contain XFA data that we do not yet support.



 If you get this message when opening your file:


We recommend updating to the PDF-XChange Editor for the latest and most functional product.

It may be that your file contains XFA data that we don't yet support.  Take a look at the bottom left of the PDF-XChange Viewer window and if the form does contain XFA data you will see a notification icon.  Click it to see the full notice on the issue with your document display.
