Update: Thumbnail Previews are successfully generated in PDF Studio version 2022 and above.
This kb article and instructions concern PDF Studio 2021 and earlier only.
Q: After installing PDF Studio, thumbnails do not show for my PDF documents on my Windows 7 computer. How can I restore this?
A: Try the following:
- Uninstall PDF Studio
- Uninstall Adobe Reader (or whatever was your default application for PDF viewing before installing PDF Studio).
- Reinstall Adobe Reader
- Reinstall PDF Studio but un-check all file associations.
These steps should restore the thumbnail preview but, unfortunately, will also make Adobe Reader your default PDF viewer.
To open files in PDF Studio, you can:
- Drag and drop PDF files onto the PDF Studio icon on your desktop
- Right-click on any PDF file and choosing Open With > PDF Studio from the mouse menu.
