Almost the best

about Evince · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

Evince is my default PDF reader, but still lacks annotations as you can notice by the comments above.
Still, it has great GTK+3.x theme integration, no bloat, and I can read both my big true-pdf files and .cbr comic books flawlessly.
My upvote.

Home row

It is great also that you can use the home row (h, j, k, l), and other useful shortcuts, to move arround

Windows installation is not easily available.
It is a unix program which could be compiled for windows but go figure it yourself.

Printing problems

about Evince and Foxit Reader, PDF-XChange Viewer, Sumatra PDF · · Helpful Not helpful -1 Helpful Report as spam

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.

It's not a reader related problem but a Windows XP problem (compatibility with printing API)
/!\ Windows XP are deprecated now


great project but still not ready for prime time

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
