Negative Review by jamesbond2 about Evince Feb 2015

It was awesome, till they went Gnome3 route and converted it into UGLY looking mess.


Since Foxit Reader became too bloated I tried other PDF readers and I found Evince and Sumatra very slim and fast.

BUT both have a problem with printing on my pc with Win XP:

Evince quits and crashes when I click print and Sumatra takes 1 minute to start printing one page!

So I switched to another alternative, PDF-XChange, which works very well and is small enough.


too many issues:
- some pdfs are not displayed at all
- fails to print document approx. 50% of the time
- window position always resets itself between uses
