There are others... what about using Foxit, Nitro, or Sumatra as alternatives to Adobe?

I kicked Adobe to the curb a couple of years ago. (I never understood why updating the freakin' pdf reader should require a system reboot!) So far, Foxit Reader has been quite suitable as a replacement.

Fair enough. I almost forgot who the OP was.

Yes, I've been a happy Windows user of Evince for some time now. But I have to use an older version. The current one causes a lockup of itself and then freezes the computer resulting in a forced shut down of the computer. It doesn't like my Samsung Smart TV's 300+ page manual for some weird reason. But the old version likes it just fine.

Wish that one could do XDP format. Had to print one of those the other day to get absentee ballot from S.C. Downloaded an older version of Acrobum Reader..then promptly uninstalled it after the deed was done.
