Adobe Acrobat not opening when clicking pdf

Recommended Posts

When I  double click a pdf in Evernote, it's opening Preview on my iMac instead of Adobe Acrobat like it use to a couple of days ago. In the past, I was able to edit a document in Adobe Acrobat and Save back to Evernote. I made sure it is the default pdf program on my iMac.

I found the fix, looks like my iMac had changed the default app to open pdf's with Preview which will not save changes to pdf back to Evernote. In fact, Wondershare and none of the other pdf editors I tried would allow changes back to Evernote, only Adobe Acrobat Pro does this as far as I know. Here are the steps to change default app back to Acrobat:
