    Try:

    Action: android.intent.action.VIEW
    Data: content://com.android.htmlfileprovider/sdcard/name_of_pdf.pdf
    Type: PDF/*

    if not, you can use Astro to do this. Just create a new shortcut > astro > pick the file you want to open

    Thanks, cheated and used Astro instead as cutany seems overly complicated.

    I recommend using Linda File Manager

    1. it's free
    2. on the Market
    3. high rating
    4. small and lightweight
    5. allows you to create a shortcut to a file, and put the shortcut on home screen
    6. you can uninstall Linda File Manager later and the shortcut remains
    7. it's FREE

    click the THANKS button, follow me on twitter.com/peter733 & facebook.com/peter733

    Given the content of all 3 of your posts, I'm assuming you are in some way affliated with Linda file manager.

    Although I use Astro myself, if it helps you to know, I put Linda on my fiance's hero when she first got it.

    I bet they've got one of those sunstrips in their MkII Cortina, saying 'Peter & Linda'

    I think they are Mk1V Escort owners myself, or possibly an Orion (shudder)

    When I was a kid my Dad would drive me around in his Triumph 2500 Pi.
    Now that was a cool car, walnut dash and overdrive gears :)
    I loved it!

    Had a Mk1 Mexico (Red), Mk2 Mexico (Orange), Mk2 RS2000 (White) droop snoot.

    RS2000 ended up with a Sierra 5 speed box

    Happy Days,

    I had a 2.0 Ghia Sierra sapphire - It was crap but it was RWD.
    Replaced that with a 2.9 V6 Granada Scorpio and I loved that car! :)
    Never let me down either.

    As we are hugely off topic anyway: ;)
    After that I went French Hothatches.
    Then started getting into tuned Jap Turbocharged... fast but soulless.
    Then started working my way through French again, hothatches to saloon diesels.
    Nice cars with personality and crap electrics.

    Jesus, what have I started!

    I had a MKII Escort 1.6 Ghia, and scrapped it when a half-shaft broke on the diff (no.2). Got tired of trying to find replacement exhaust manifolds, after getting through about three in two years.

    They're worth a few bob now as well.

    There's a gorgeous MK1 I see around here occasionally. Not a Mexico though, sorry.
