Does anyone know how to change the preferences so that PDF files automatically open with Acrobat and not in Preview? I can't figure out where to do that. Thanks.

Select the file that you want to open with acrobat. Then do a command i, for get info. Under the open with option choose acrobat reader. Then click the change all button. Then anytime you double click on a acrobat file it will open acrobat reader.

Is there any specific reason you want to? Preview is about 1000 times faster than Acrobat on the Mac.
