Web Browser Options

Display PDF in Internet Explorer - When enabled, Revu's Internet Explorer plug-in will be active. If enabled while Internet Explorer is open, the plug-in will not be active until the browser is closed and reopened.

Firefox and Chrome no longer support NPAPI, so there are no plug-ins for these browsers.


Language: Select the language to be used with Revu. If this selection has never been changed, the language selected at the time Revu was installed will be shown.

  1. Select the desired Language.
  2. Click Apply.
  3. Click Reset Settings. This will apply the language change to customizable settings like profiles and tool sets.
  4. Click OK and restart Revu.
