    "So much faster - love it!"

    March 28, 2010  |   By pooky4


    SOOOO much faster than Adobe's Reader, and doesn't have the instability problems that Adobe's does. Even better - when saving a PDF from an email, it actually remembers your previous save location instead of defaulting to the TEMP folder!


    I tend to be more keyboard-oriented than mouse-oriented, so when I want to print a PDF, I use CTR + P. I should then be able to hit enter to select "OK" and send it to the printer, but for some reason, I can only CLICK on OK. Frustrating!


    Even with the print issue in my cons, I really prefer this program. It's among the first programs I put onto a new PC. Since I have Adobe Acrobat Pro, I use it when I need that type of functionality (i.e. creating PDF's and combining PDF's), but for general viewing and printing, this program is my default.
