  • How to prevent Foxit Reader locking PDF files

    How to prevent Foxit Reader locking PDF files? I generate these files with Asciidoctor and it is a pain to have to close the reader each time.

    Thanks

    Could you please provide the following info?
    1) Version number of Foxit Reader; (You may check it by going to "Help"->"About Foxit Reader')
    2) Version number of Asciidoctor;
    3) Instructions to reproduce the problem.
    4) Your OS info. (E.g. Win 10, 64-bit)

    Thank you.

      For uses like this I have switched to using SumatraPDF to preview my pdfs.

        Ams627 ,

        Since V5.0 of Foxit Reader/Foxit Reader,the PDF file is opened in Foxit Reader in exclusive mode by default.
        And our developers have worked out a solution for user to using Foxit Reader togher with other application(such as Asciidoctor and latex,etc).
        It is using commandline to open PDF file with Foxit Reader if you want to using both of Foxit Reader and other application.
        The commandline is:
        [Foxit Reader.exe path] "PDF file path" /A nolock=1
