How to change default pdf viewer for a document

I have 3 pdf viewers on my Nook tablet. If I go through the library to choose a document to view, ordinarily the Nook will ask me which viewer I wish to use to view the document, & it gives me the option to set that viewer as my default for that document.  I accidentally hit the "set default" button once for a particular document, & now I can't figure out how to reset the pdf viewer for that file.  Anyone know what I need to do?

 

Thanks bunches for your help!

What happens when you long press the file?  Does it give you the choice again?

Thanks, that did it!  Amongst the other options, if I long press the file name, it lets me Clear Default Launcher.

Re: How to change default pdf viewer for a document

I am having the same basic issue. OverDrive has taken over and I can't the epub file to open in anything else.  But, when I do a long hold on the file, my only options are Read, View Details, Add to Home, Add to  Shelf, and Delete. 

 

Help please!! What am I missing?

Look in your Settings. There might be something there.

This is happening to me with my nook color too. Mine usually try to upload to Box though. I do not have that clear default launcher option either.

I tried in Nook Color settings and there's nothing there. Not sure how to do it on Nook Color.

Re: How to change default pdf viewer for a document

I was having the same exact issue - you have to go into your library - find the PDF, long press and at this point you'll see the option to clear the default launcher!!
Hope that works for you as easily as it worked for me!
