    Opening a PDF file with Skill Reply

    Is there a way to open a PDF file from skill? (I am using windows XP)

    In my Skill Program, I want to link layout notes (PDF) for certain components. That way I'll be able to know which parts need special attention.

    Not to my knowledge.  However, if you can copy the text from the PDF and paste it into a text program like Notepad.  Then you could read that file.

    Good Day, R².

     Thank you,

    I think Allegro only read file notepad, so it can't read line.

    How about you

    Yes you are correct,it can read only note pad.

    I acn suggest one more option,you can import " .bmp file " using some skill file.,then you do not require to capture the stack up etc...
