    really like this program just wish they would lower the memory usage.. even when set to only 10% it can still use a tom at times

    I started trying this program out more seriously a while back and recently switched it to my default PDF viewer. It's using about 18M of memory on my machine and it's set to "Automatic." I don't remember what Foxit used but 18M is doable, for right now at least. :)

    Thanks! I intended to post that. Apparently, there was some issue relating to digital certificates in build 202 which was fixed in .203.

    PDF X-Change Viewer added recently a VERY well done feature: OCR to make image based/scanned PDF's fully text searchable PDF files.

    Very few PDF applications have OCR features with excellent results, like this PDF viewer does!

    It can convert an image PDF to a text (searchable) one, works in most cases, and it is free.

    But it does not extract the text from the original PDF. What it does is to add a "text layer" to the original document, so the output file is bigger than the original. Depending on the options selected, it can be much bigger. Besides, the output is also a not editable PDF.

    Yes. OCR feature has that purpose exactly. E.g. if user has a scanned PDF file and he wants to copy text from it (to Notepad/Word, etc.). Instead to have a PDF image a user has a PDF document! Useful when working with scanned PDF files.

    Their object isn't file size/edit PDF files.
