    Restore "Preview" as default PDF viewer
    Hello all,

    I am using Panther 10.3.2. I recently installed Adobe Acrobat 6.0 professional. At some point in the install process or first run I must have clicked a box that sets Acrobat to be the Default PDF viewer rather than the OSX app, "Preview".

    I would very much like to restore "Preview" as the Default for PDF as it is so much quicker if I am just opening a PDF for a quick look.

    I have looked around quite a bit in the preferences panels of both apps but can not find anywhere to set the default. Can anyone help me out with this???

    Thanks a bunch in advance....
