Killer feature for me: highlighting text capabilities.

about Okular · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

This is the only PDF (PDF only!) reader that satisfies me fully in all 3 dimensions: open source, functionality and speed. All the other readers that I tried have a shortfall in at least one of the 3 - Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, Sumatra, DPF.js, STDU, Icecream ebook reader. I won't describe it in full, you'd better try it and see for yourself. I'll just mention my favourite functional features - cursor pointing to the active chapter in the contents tab, Trim margins option, filter field for all tabs - Contents, Thumbnails, Reviews, Bookmarks and a convenient hand tool switch (it's called Browse).
But keep in mind - it's good only for PDFs and only for reading. It's bad for reading epubs for example and can't edit files. Also its installation on Windows is hidden somewhy, but all you need to do is install KDE via KDE on Windows from Sourceforge. This installer incapsulates the programs including Okular.

Customizable and can be made to be either lightweight or a performer, depending on your computer's power. I especially like the highlighting and comments ability. Very useful when reading textbooks.

Works great on Linux

Happy with it so far. Great as a default viewer, but sometimes is slow to launch.

Comments & Annotations on Linux

about Okular and Evince, Foxit Reader · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Today I tried 3 apps on linux in attempt to test comments in the PDFs... finally Okular has support for Comments , great !
I commented Foxit & Evince they they do not support Comments & Annotation under Linux, while they are in the category pdf-annotation ... Strangely Okular is not in this category ? I just tried to update this app information by adding it to pdf-annotation group. (I guess someone will approve this change?)
