[SOLVED] Prefer viewing PDF when I have EPUB & PDF of a book?

Is there any way for View to prefer PDF when I have EPUB & PDF of a book?

So when I press V it opens PDF rather than EPUB.

Plugin or Preference?

Calibre: 3.29

Thanks

The viewer uses the preferred (output) format from Preferences: Behavior
You can only have 1 preferred format, but devices allow for ordering the priority of acceptable formats

But instead of using "V" (view), use Alt-V (view specific format),

Thanks!

Actually, viewer seems to use preferred (input) format. Putting PDF above EPUB in that list worked a treat. My preferred (output) is still set to EPUB.



I'd rather not use Alt+V as it involves two extra steps (choosing PDF in alert and then confirming).

@gingerbeardman - You could also assign an Open With option for PDF and give it a keyboard shortcut. FX: I have PDF-XChange assigned to open PDFs with Ctrl+Shift+P as its shortcut.

Sure, I just don't want to have to think "what format is this?" I just want V to open it.

All sorted now though!

@gingerbreadman - IIRC when you do a conversion the Input format will default to the highest format available according to the Behaviour->Preferred input format order: list. For me at least, PDF would be the least preferred format for conversion input.

But that said, I thought the answer given by theducks was correct, i.e. -

Quote:
"The viewer uses the preferred (output) format from Preferences: Behavior"
But I just tested it, and 'V' does indeed use the first available format from the Preferred input format order: list.

So, either it changed or he and I have have the same memory fault
