Perfect, non-annoying pdf reader

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,

it cant be that difficult, i am simply an idiot. Somehow google doesnt provide the answers i want, so i gotta ask the hivemind.

what i am looking for is a simple pdf reader that stands out in two regards.

1) its not annoying. This disqualifies adobe pdf reader, as the massive option bar is always open when i open the program.

2) automatically overwrites the old pdf version once i hit ctrl + s. This also disqualifies adobe, as that always opens the "save as" path. f that.

 

i used the old edge browser because of those two reasons for the longest time. It obviously sucked as a browser, but it worked wonders in just not pissing me off. Sadly, with the update to the chromium based edge everything sucks there as well. cant just hit ctrl + s anymore and also....the fucking table of content is gone...i checked the edge associated forums and...welp...they just forgot to implement it. Not just does the browser no longer have a distinct window on the left to show you the chapters, it also excludes the chapters from the actual text. so there is simply no access to the table of content. needless to say that i require another program that is capable of not pissing me off (a hard task, i am aware)

 

Would love if you could recommend sth for me. The 2) is more important to me than most things as my daily job is going through papers and highlighting them.

Greetings

An angry dude with a reasonable hate towards pdf readers

I tested few and finally I stayed with PDF X-change viewer. Has it that options you asking for? Just check.

i looked into it. could only install the pdf converter for free, not an actual viewer, so sadly no. But thank you for your input:)
