Which is your favourite PDF reader?
I like Foxit Reader
Sumatra PDF of course.
Other: Google Docs Viewer. Personally, I use this Greasemonkey script, add-on is available for FF & Chrome: http://blog.arpitnext.com/gpdf
Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer (by Google)
Adobe does what i need it to, so I don't bother farting around with other stuff.
PDF Xchange Viewer for me! Have been with Foxit for a long time (after Adobe) but I like PXV more now because of the added features.
Sumatra is a great simple PDF reader. It's my favorite.
But I like Adobe Reader as well. Adobe Reader's code is getting very secure, thanks to all the current scrutiny.
I've tried several, settled on:
Nuance PDF Reader (free)
1: Sumatra doesn't let me change the background colour of the pdf document. Foxit and Adobe allow this.
2: Adobe allows one to drag (or extend a selection of material), copy and paste elsewhere as text. Foxit used to be limited to the present screen. (Maybe that's changed with their view as text option?)
another vote for Adobe Reader
Really nice information at that forum. Appreciate it a lot
Re. 2: Sumatra also does this quite well (ctrl+left click and drag).
So now my only excuse for not using Sumatra is that I can't change the colour of text or the page background, both of which are doable in Adobe & Foxit.
Maybe if I ask nicely @ the Sumatra forum ...?
Adobe Reader, as long as it works im fine with it
Sumatra for its simplicity
Foxit Phantom is a Reader, Creator, Editor etc.
