    I deleted PDF slicer and it worked. I only had 12 selections.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I deleted PDF Splicer and things work fine for me as well. I have 24 selections.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I also deleted PDF Splicer and everything worked as expected. I only have 8 selections.

    I am having the same problem - PDF files opening in GoodReader as .flv files. The only workaround I have found is that once I have worked on the .flv files in GoodReader I mail them back to myself, save them on my Mac, and change the file suffix to .pdf. That works.

    I found this thread based upon having the same problem as you all...iPad 3 iOS6.  I also have PDF Splicer, but don't want to delete it.  I have Dropbox and opened a PDF from within DB.  I selected the "Open In..." button (looks like a box with an arrow going into it....and had no problems opening the PDF in several other apps to include iBooks and PDF SPlicer.  The problem appears to lie with the Mail app in iOS6.  I have 19 apps listed in my "Open in.." selections.  I can see Print, but not the Quick View selection that others have talked about.

    Hello,

     

    I'm the developer of PDF Splicer and this thread has been brought to my attention.  I don't think that anything in my app is causing this and it may just be a bug in iOS 6, but I was wondering if any of you who are having this problem would like to help me debug it.  If so please send me an email at support(at)tipirnenisoftware.com.

     

    Thanks

    Guys,

     

    I just got off the phone with Apple Support.  After describing the problem, they were able to duplicate our same issue on her iPad and was forwarding a report to the software engineers.

    Help!  I've tried all of your suggestions.  I have deleted all the apps I can find that open pdf's, except my mail app, and I still only get offered the mail app and a grey "print" icon that searches for the nearest air print printer.  I just want to open the occasional pdf from an email into my ibooks!  What happened to easy?
