I'm getting permission errors messages that a pdf "couldn’t be opened because you don’t have permission to view it."  I do have permission to view the articles.  Any suggestions?  I'm on 10.8.2, with Houdahspot Version 3.6.4 (4962)

Please check /Applications/Utilities/ for error messages as you try to open a PDF file.

I have seen such behavior previously. I was caused by the Mac OS X sandbox.
Sandboxed applications like Preview and TextEdit sometimes fail to open file.
A restart cures the issue.

In recent versions of HoudahSpot I have added a workaround which relies on different API to open files.
So far this has been reported to work reliably.
