I am often converting/printing word docs into PDF docs in iMac Lion. I would like to set so converted PDF docs would open automatically in Preview.


Is it possible to set so? If then how?

    Select any PDF in the finder. Get info by pressing command-I. Scroll down to the "Open with" section. Choose Preview. Press the "Change All" button. Preview is now your default PDF app.

    Thanks but I already have Preview as default. It doesn't open freshly converted pdf-s automatically. I have to go to Finder and open them from there. I would like to skip that step and make Preview open freshly converted PDF doc automatically as soon as conversion is completed and document is created in Finder.

    You can probably do that with Automator or Folder actions. Not something I have any reason to do but I can't imagine, with a little research, that it would be very difficult.
