PDF Preview Error (#3247, #3335 and #3402)

Ok, that is a perfect setting!!!  Assuming full functionality in the attachments area when you guys get done, that would be exactly what I am looking for and it looks like it would work in any position for other users!!  

Still think the thought title could use a little pizazz......

Updated Java, Updated Acrobat (actually installed reader just to see what happened).  No luck, still getting the error mentioned above....

Other ideas?

Actually it makes me wonder if I don't need acrobat READER in order for the brain to do its thing rather than the full version of the program???
Dragging Attachments into Plex in TB9 (#3418)
well, turns out that I must be having machine specific issues.  The installation on my laptop works just as you would hope.  I can drag an attachment out to create a child thought and everything stays where it is supposed to.

However, I agree that there is a problem with whether it is copied or moved.  even when I change the preferences in the UI section to "move dropped files" it still just copies it.  and none of the helper keys changes that.

Here is what I get when I set my tools to the new list view.  I am thrilled at the list view for the attachments.  However the aesthetic of the title and notes area is wonky....   you see the HUGE grey area (where the attachments used to sit as tabs).  That is just wasted space.

Also, in any view that is available the title of the thought can get cut off depending on width of the attachments notes area.  And it is quite subdued.  so.....

I was wanting to suggest something where the title is expanded over the entire notes/attachment area and maybe takes on the thought color theme.....

Of course you still need to do something with that wasted attachment area but i'll leave that to you guys

What version are you using?   I can't even drag a file out to make a new thought in (alpha) at the moment....

For the moderator reading... that sounds like a bug in the alpha release

Patrick it seems that it is machine specific.  I have 9b on my laptop and everything seems to work fine.  But on my work desktop it does not.  I am running Adobe CS on the laptop but a stand alone Adobe X Standard.

Any suggestions on what I should do to fix it?

Ok that's cool.  That bit is working as expected.  Eagerly awaiting the other bits you have in store!

Just some further info for you while you're mucking around with this feature:

As stated that view is what I wanted and likely what others will want/like.  However, I can't DO anything with the attachments in that view.  I can't drag them out to the plex, they don't open on double click - nothing.  I think if you add your little action badge to the bottom of each attachment (view-able when the attachment is clicked) that will get it done.

When the window is set to list mode, I think you might do something else with the notes window as it has this strip along the left side where the attachments used to be.  But that is just aesthetics, so up to you

create a way to flip the list view to be on top as some folks may prefer it.  That is likely not critical, just a suggestion.

Ok, so I found it on the alpha channel..    That is almost exactly what I was looking for except that at the moment there does not seem to be a way to preview the file.   (you kinda have me hooked on that now that it's starting to work!!)....  

I am please at this simple fix.  It has the notes area on top and the file list on the bottom (hopefully it can be easy to make that adjustable for the full on advanced layout crowd). 

Just a few more tweaks and I'll convert!

Sounds good Matt but I am not getting the option for list or tab.  I've tried clicking all over the place and it's not happening (vers.

edit: but hey, now my pdf preview is working!!!   (some others still broken)

On the latest version (9.0.147 - ? ) and still having issues with the PDF preview not working.  Specifically the error is: PDF.js v1.4.20 (build: b15f335) Message: stream must have data..

Any ideas folks
