Problems getting PDFelement to open each day

Recommended Posts


I recently started using PDFelement 6 Professional on a Mac running the Mojave operating system.  I am having problems setting it as the default program to open PDFs.  When I set it up to be the default program, following the instructions in your "How-to Articles" and "FAQ & Troubleshooting" pages, it works fine for the day.  Then when I start my computer up the next morning and double-click on a PDF, it opens in Preview.  I then have to repeat the process for setting PDFelement to be the default program for opening PDFs.

Also, after I have set PDFelement to be the default, the first time I open a PDF I always get a pop-up window that says: "PDFelement 6 Pro is an app downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?".  I click "Open" and everything works fine after that for the rest of the day.

Any thoughts on these issues or suggestions for how to resolve them?
