    <p>Awesome product! I had been using a competitor's product (Nitro PDF) but was tired of the software crashing multiple times during a project. This freeware has a more-intuitive interface and has not yet crashed after being up all day. Thank you!</p>

    <p>Excellent all-around viewer; 2 features which I especially appreciate:<br /> <br /> 1. Gamma adjustment for rendering - love it, why does nobody else have this?<br /> <br /> 2. If you use 64-bit Windows there is no native support for pdf thumbnails in explorer--even with Adobe Reader or Acrobat! Easiest way to get them is to install 64-bit PDF-Xchange.</p>

    <p>Just out of interest, I use the Viewer a lot. Really a lot.<br /> There is nothing out there that is better.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Further, I teach about 2 million students on National Radio here in South Africa, and provide I.T. Services to the Ministry of Education.<br /> They were &quot;wowed&quot; when I showed them the Viewer.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> I have also appeared on National TV for Technology.<br /> IN 2007, as a part of a 2 member team, we wrote a programme for mobile, and won the International Microsoft Innovative Teacher Awards held in Finland. We beat 75 other countries.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> This year, I want to enter again. This will be part of a bigger application which we have completed. This Microsoft competition is non-profit, but provides international recognition across newspapers, TV, radio, Websites, etc.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> If you are curios how we use the XChange Viewer for teaching, I can send you details.<br /> I am not joking when I say that the XChange Viewer is going to help our country a lot!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> This year, it is all about IT in South African education. I intend to introduce everyone here to Tracker Software Products, in particular the PDF XChange Viewer. It is awesome.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> In addition to being a high school Principal, I am heavily involved in technology. In South Africa, we are lagging behind a lot. Most people here use Adobe viewer. I have introduced many people to PDF XChange Viewer!<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Best Regards for the New Year<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Please keep up the excellent work.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Vanesh</p>

    Never knew I needed this until I tried. Now I never use anything else.<br /> It's fast just as a viewer and compared to other products with same abilities it's lightning fast..<br /> I love I can make changes without getting stamped with "made with ..." Thank you for that Tracker.<br /> In fact I loved it so much I bought the pro version with a 3 year update plan.

    This is the best PDF viewer and editor. I have tried almost all available other free PDF products from other company, and found PDF-XC miles away better.<br /> <br /> Now to make the best better, I'll discuss briefly its pros & cons:<br /> pros:<br /> <br /> - fully customize-able interface, so if on a wide screen u r able to place all toolbars & menu bar vertically on the sides to utilize available space.<br /> - Fast, seriously fast and smooth navigation through docs with the lowest cpu usage between the competition. ( that's actually in one of its best features )<br /> - a lot of other features. I wont talk about cause well covered in other reviews.<br /> <br /> cons:<br /> - The only thing I don't like is the program trim its memory usage when it's minimized, so it loses some of its smoothness when resuming work. memory is the cheapest thing u can buy for a computer, and most computer purchased in the last 4 years have at least 2 GB RAM. So to save some megabytes of RAM usage and sacrifice some performance for this is not a good thing. <br /> You can at least put a check box in performance preferences to "reduce memory usage when minimized" and leave it to the user decide what's best in his case.<br /> <br /> Thanks for your awesome software,,

    <p>Plain awesome. Highly customizable and fast. Provides a very useful highlighter tool.<br /> What's really good is that it allows me to hide its UI completely so I can focus on reading. I altered Hand hotkey for H, Highlighter for Ctrl + H and Notes panel for Shift + Ctrl + H, so I can reach all functions I need from a PDF viewer with 3 hotkeys.</p>

    Amazing product. Loads lightning fast. Allows annotating pdf's for note taking. Has nice tabbed interface. Best pdf viewer.

    I run Linux and found that there was a complete lack of good PDF editors... until I was pointed to PDF XChange Viewer. Wow, this program kicks major butt and runs great with Linux (using Wine). I bought the upgrade since I like to crop and do other advanced editing, and I find it simply fantastic. If it had split-screen ability, then it would be pretty much perfect.

    <p>I concur with other comments. Adobe Reader is the pits and you get no support from these people on what has shown to be a continuing problem wtih Adove Reader 9.4. error message says &quot;Adobe Reader has encountered a problem and needs to close down. Removed and re-installed 3 times with same results. Could not even locate an older version to try.<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p><br /> So - install PDF-XChange Viewer and all is solved !</p>

    Highly recommended for students who read many pdf documents on a computer. Its rich features make pdf editing so easy!

    <p>The final straw with Adobe Acrobat was looking, at length as usual due to their complicated user interface and unhelpful help site, for a way to resize font in text boxes and callouts. Finally, I searched the Internet, only to find . . . Adobe Acrobat does not even provide this capability! <br /> <br /> That was it. A V-8 moment occurred, without the head-slapping: Why the heck did I abandon PDF XChange 4 Pro for this bloated, pretentious piece of junk from Adobe?<br /> <br /> I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat (saving myself 4GB of hard drive space in the bargain) and reinstalled PDF XChange 4 Pro. The first thing I noticed were the text box and callout tools and, lo and behold, the drop down menus for selecting text fonts and sizes. No hunting, no perplexity, no frustration.<br /> <br /> This and so many other things are more convenient, better presented and documented, and just plain easier to do in PDF XChange 4 Pro. V-8 moment! This time, including head-slap. Ouch!</p>

    In the first 5 minutes of using this software, I knew it was sooooo much better than all the other PDF editors I'd tried, free and paid for.<br /> <br /> FAN.TAS.TIC!!!<br /> <br /> Thanks so much Tracker, you've made me a happy girl today! :)<br /> <br /> Carolina

    <p>I just wanted to markup pdf files which Adobe reader just somehow doesn't allow. This program did it even in the free mode. My other frequent use is the search function over directories/multiple files which this program performs so much faster in searching and opening files than the 'other' reader. And its so affordable. I'm buying this program.</p>

    I'm in nursing school and I can't take notes any other way now. I love this program. It is so helpful and easy to use.

    I love this software!! It is perfect for taking notes in class on pdf's instead of printing them out and taking notes the old fashioned way!

    <p>This product is fantastic, it's exactly what I have been looking for. It is so easy to add comments, annotate and highlight pdf's.<br /> <br /> Excellent!</p>

    <p>Lo m&aacute;s usado no es siempre lo mejor, he realizado el cambio de visor de PDF y ahora no paro de recomendar este programa, f&aacute;cil, sencillo, r&aacute;pido, ligero y en espa&ntilde;ol.<br /> Despu&eacute;s de usarlo te preguntar&aacute;s por qu&eacute; usabas Adobe Reader. Lo &uacute;nico pega que le veo es la interfaz y sus iconos, que dan apariencia de sobrecargado, pero eso se arregla desactivando las barras de herramientas que no vayamos a usar y listo.</p>

    Ich habe das Produkt seit einiger Zeit im Einsatz und finde es klasse, auch andere Benutzer schätzen die Bearbeitungsfunktionen des Programms. <br /> <br /> Es startet schneller als der Adobe Reader, nervt nicht mit ständigen "Telefonaten nach Hause" und hat sogar schon beschädigte PDF Dateien öffnen können, bei denen auch der aktuelle Adobe Reader versagte.<br /> <br /> Ich kann das Programm nur empfehlen und setze es in den von mir betreuten Netzwerken ein.<br /> <br /> Christian-Michael Kleinau<br /> IT-Leiter
