Chart not displayed in Pilot2ATC

Recommended Posts

Aviation sectional charts no longer display after moving pilot2atc onto a new computer.  Adobe Reader DC is installed on the C drive, designated the default program for pdf's.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

In addition to designating Adobe Reader as  the default for PDFs in Windows, you also have to designate it as the default PDF reader inside Adobe Reader Settings.

No joy displaying Av Charts.  Unable to locate/identify specific setting in Reader DC for exclusivity.  Have set it as default app for all pdf's in the Windows settings. 

What file type is the av chart?  Thinking I may have a conflicting setting with Adobe Acrobat Pro on this computer.

The charts are PDFs.

In the free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, you select Edit->Preferences in the menu and a large dialog/window opens.

At the bottom of this preferences window, there is a button names "Select as Default PDF Handler" and a checkbox to "Tell me if Adobe Acrobat Reader is not my default PDF application".

You need to press the button and check the option box, then press OK to save these settings.

I really appreciate how Dave is on top of his product, knows how to fix it, and promptly responds to questions.

is it ok to use another pdf program like Sumatra, or must I use the dreaded Adobe?

I believe if you want integrated charts, you have to put up with it 😉

I got Adobe installed. But I was wondering why when I file a flight plan, it is displayed on a bank white screen. I thought maybe it would be on top of an IFR chart or something.

Your flight plans are displayed on the main map, nothing to do with Adobe.  Adobe is only used for viewing charts in the TERPs window.

If you have trouble with Adobe, many users have switched to a PDF Reader named Foxit Reader.

Dave, interesting - does that mean Foxit can be used to view charts in the TERPs window too, or is this still limited to Adobe?
