Stop PDF's from opening after download (4 posts)

    When a PDF is finished downloading, it automatically opens. Is this a Fetch issue or something else.

    I am using OSX 10.3.9 and Fetch 4.0.3

    Any help is appreciated!

    Yes, Fetch 4.0.3 is set to open PDFs automatically. You can stop it from opening them by doing the following:

    1) Choose "Post-Processing" from the "Customize" menu. The Post-processing dialog will appear.
    2) Select the entry for Portable Document Format.
    3) Click the Disable button.
    4) Click the OK button.

    Now the PDFs will just download, but not open.
