launch [documentPath with] applicationPath
in the dictionary
put the effective fileName of this stack into tPdf
set the itemDel to slash
delete item -1 of tPdf
put "/Support/Instructions.pdf" after tPdf
launch tPdf with "/Applications/Preview.app"
…works for me in a standalone if you add a folder ‘Support' containing the ‘Instructions.pdf' in the ‘Copy Files’ pane of the ’Standalone Application Settings’. For this to work in the IDE, make sure the ‘Support’ folder is next to the Livecode stack.
