    Default XII Dashboard PDF Tutorials

    Does anyone know how to change the default browser with the dashboard for XII? I never use IE but it's set as the default browser when I click on the Tutorials and the PDF will not open in IE. I want to change to FF or Chrome. See attached.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I don't use the dashboard to do anything other than open a site, but
    changing the default browser is easy enough.

    Tools | Options | Application | Preview tab

    Note that NOF is built to use IE, so YMMV with another preview browser.

    I already have FF selected for the preview browser, which only applies to previewing a project. Some other setting controls the dashboard default browser but I can't find it. By the way, what is YMMV?

    NOF 12 -- XII -- is hard-wired at the Dashboard point to use Internet
    Explorer (IE), NOT the default browser.

    Sort of dumb, isn't it ?

    Or to be fair, it's incredibly short-sighted.

    There MAY be an .INI or Registry entry for NOF 12 that might alter this
    "Fusion Dashboard love fest" for IE, but the users should never have to
    revert to that need.

    How much you want to bet that if you change it you'll discover it's IE specific?

    That's what I said in my original post.
