    Adobe does what i need it to, so I don't bother farting around with other stuff.

    Hi;

    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?)
    3: Both Adobe and Foxit allow for deactivating javascript. I don't know how Sumatra handles js.

    Sumatra doesn't support any dynamic content, such as JavaScript.

    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 ...?
