# [texworks] Typset - but Acrobat Reader holds pdf

Hi,

Sometimes I need to preview \pdfcomment(s) and need to use Acrobat
Reader to do that (\pdfcomment(s) are not in poppler yet).

Does any one know why Acrobat Reader holds onto the .pdf when you want
to Typset (Green arrow button)?

Is there any workaround? Otherwise you always have to close Acrobat
Reader if it is viewing the document you are going to typeset.
