How Do You View Your App On A Mac?

Postby justadude55 » Tue Aug 31, 2010 7:29 pm

When I try to preview my app with my PS and Addendum, I click on Preview App.

This downloads an aspx file that is unreadable by Preview and I-Photo.

Anyone know how to view an aspx on a Mac?

Right-click on the file and click "get info". Then go to "Name and Extension" and change the extension (.aspx) to .pdf

When it asks you if you want to change the format click yes.

You should be able to view it in Preview this way.

If you download a program that converts .docx files to .doc files it also lets you read .aspx files. I forget which converter I downloaded, but if you Google "convert .docx to .doc mac" a bunch of them come up.

Umm I still recommend downloading Adobe Reader for Mac.. its faster because you can set all .aspx files to automatically open using it without changing the extension each time and it has some useful features that preview doesnt.
