Changing viewers

You might prefer the way one viewer displays a particular file format over another viewer or the way the tools work in one viewer better than another viewer. When attempting to display a document, Meridian Asset Management Module tries to use the first viewer in its list of available viewers for each file type. If the first viewer fails, it moves on to the next viewer in the list, and so on.

Before you begin

You must be an administrator of the computer or User Account Control (UAC) disabled.

To change the order of the viewers in the list for a file format:

  1. Select a document of the format for which you want to select a different viewer. For example, select an AutoCAD drawing file if you want to use a different viewer for this file format.
  2. Right-click in the viewer pane and select Viewer Options. The BlueCielo View Control dialog box appears. On the Viewer Priority page, under Use viewers in order is the list of available viewers for AutoCAD files.
  3. Select the desired viewer from the list and move it to the top of the list using the button.
  4. Click OK.

You should now see the document displayed with the chosen viewer in the viewer pane. This procedure applies to all file formats and all viewers.

Note    For information on using the tools that are specific to third-party viewers, refer to that viewer’s documentation.
