My company has quite a few users testing eM Client. The biggest problem is that there is no PDF previewer. This may be a dealbreaker for us. I know there are other threads on here with requests for it, but apparently eM Client doesn’t care to even respond to feature requests. If this is how the company operates, we may want to look elsewhere for an email client.
Does it only show on hover, or can you click on it and keep it there after you’ve clicked on another application?
I would imagine it will operate eg: similar to the current eM Client thumbnail attachment hover and that “like most other email PDF Preview programs when you hover over them”, “if you then move your mouse to another application”, the preview will normally disappear within a sec later “unless your mouse pointer is at the same xy attachment location or still hovered over the attachment location area” when you switched back to eM Client.
Right, and effectively making the preview pretty much useless.
It seems like the creators of such email applications don’t actually use them to deal with PDFs. Outlook has done it correctly for many years already. Clicking on the attachment should make it fill up the body area of the email. That way you can reply to the email quickly while looking at the preview, without bothering to open the PDF in a separate program.
The lack of a pdf preview option like Outlook has is almost a dealbreaker for me as well. The rest of the program is great but being forced to open a pdf on another program every time is a super pain. Outlook has had this for years and it works great. I don’t like the direction Outlook is taking but this is important enough to me that I will seriously consider both options before I officially switch to EM Client. If EM Client had a pdf preview option like Outlook has then I would switch in a heartbeat.
