PDF-XChange Viewer lets you view PDF files on your computer or online just like other PDF readers can, but with "Typewriter Mode", you can type directly on any PDF page! Now you can fill out forms and add text to PDF documents that you would normally have to print out before you could write on them.

    low because obviously, you really can't fix stupid.
    and stupid is what the devs are for avoiding addressing bugs and complaints of the users.

    I like this software. I really really do.

    1. The problem I have with it is that the dev's don't listen at all. Over the past year I've submitted to their site and on here discussing the obviously missing ability to open multiple PDF's at once, especially since it's tabbed! Instead, if you have to open multiple files, you must go through the motions of opening them one at a time.

    2. When going to print a pdf or portions thereof, you can select for example pages 2 - 9. Done and it works. Now when in ANOTHER pdf, and going to print, it actually saves previous instructions (2-9) rather than resetting and defaulting back to "All"

    For anyone that deals with financial records and things of the like, you know what I am talking about, and this makes it hard to WANT to use this program.

    -1 for just plain old ignoring
    -1 for telling me to submit on their site and then not listening
    -1 for the issues that it has and leaving them out in the first place

    In my opinion, this is the best! The Firefox plugin works flawlessly, unlike Adobe's. I haven't had any of the memory problems mentioned in other posts. Very Stable. The Paid version is even better.

    This is the one, plain and simple. Looked at ALL the other alternatives to Adobe and this is by far the winner. Bye bye Adobe, you pissed me off for the last time, most recently for CONSTANTLY wanting to reinstall the pdf viewer browser plugin(nppdf.dll), a security risk in and of itself. Even if I disable it in browser options(Firefox), it reappears later out-of-the-blue as enabled after updating... Updating that now seems to happen monthly for Adobe due to its train wreck of security holes. Forcing a plugin, how dumb is that? WAKE UP Adobe. Sheesh!
