Hello everyone!
I use Deja Vu X2 Professional for a while now and have already translated pdfs. But for some reason now the pdf filter is missing from all lists and when importing a file (pull down menu set to all known file types) pdfs do not appear.
Has anyone ever encountered such a problem or has any ideas how to fix it (except for reinstalling the program)?

Hi Max,

First try repairing your installation, it should work.

nope Jul 4, 2016

Unfortunately, repairing didn't change a thing...
I can actually import the file choosing all files instead of supported files, but that just gives me a bunch of gibberish...

Access method Jul 4, 2016

In that case reinstallation may be required.

You will want to keep your settings / customizations, then there is another solution.

I would move my settings file to the desktop. Then repair the installation. A new settings file will be created.

Now open both settings files with MS Access and copy Filters table from the new file to old file. Save the old file, delete the new file and move your old settings file to the original folder.

This should work but possibly Atril support will not suggest it.

Reinstall? Jul 4, 2016

If the filter is missing, maybe a new installation will get it back for you.

looks like Jul 5, 2016

Yeah, looks like I'll have to use a sledgehammer and reinstall... Well, for now I got the source file in a different format from the client.

Thanks for your help!
