Q: How can I override PDF Studio’s JVM?

A: We do not recommend overriding the version of Java that comes with PDF Studio – there are issues with Java 1.7.x, especially on 64bit systems, that keep PDF Studio from working optimally.

Once we feel confident that these issues are resolved, we will start packaging newer versions of Java with PDF Studio, but until then, please override at your own risk.

To override the JVM used by PDF Studio in Linux, edit the file called PDFStudio (no extension) with a text editor.

By default the 4th line will read:
Remove the # sign at the beginning of the line and then add the location of the Java JVM that you wish to use:

The location should not be a symbolic link and it should be a standard Java installation, with a bin folder that has a java executable.
