To Open a Document as Read-only in Its Default Viewer Application
- Select a document.
The document opens in the application designated as the viewer application for this type of document.Tip: Use Document > View when you want to view the document in an application that is not the document's default application. It may be that you do not have the native application installed at all, but you do have a compatible viewer installed. If you normally use your editing application to also view documents, then selecting Document > View (in that case) would have the same effect as selecting Document > Open as Read-Only.
