Re: Version 6 availability

Thanks Willy. I had not noticed the separate .msi downloads. Just downloaded and installed the 64 bit version, 72MB. Seems to work, can't see any real changes from v5. Still a big download compared with the Viewer, it is a shame Tracker are not maintaining that for those who just need a viewer.

Re: Version 6 availability

I currently use PDFXchange Editor v5 but was previously very happy with the Viewer. The download for the Viewer, now on the discontinued tab, is 17MB. Why is the editor so huge, v6 is over 100MB? In the old days your product was praised as a bloat free alternative to Adobe, it now seems that distinc...

compact toolbar

Like many I have kept with the viewer because I found, among some other things, that the toolbars in the editor took up far too much space. I have just gone back to look at the editor again and found I could drag the toolbars into the menu bar. When I had taken away most of the ones that I never use...

build 2.5.211

I see you released build 211 yesterday but the version history does not list it and there has been no discussion here. What are the changes?

Re: Page Down scroll

With all the missing features in Editor I feel it will be some time before it can replace Viewer. Let us hope that updates continue to be done to Viewer at least for the moment. It sounds like the modification to the page down scroll would be a fairly minor one so can we request it is implemented in...

Page Down scroll

Using v2.5.210.0 and with both continuous and single page mode I find Page Down and Page Up keys scroll precisely one screen's worth. I find I often have to scroll back one line so as to not lose my place when reading, especially if Page Down puts the boundary half way through the line of text. Hope...

Re: Incorrect font display in PDF XChange Pro 2.5

Just to say that the problems I had with datasheet rendering have been cured now that I have moved to the installed version of Viewer rather than the portable version. Maybe an issue in the portable version not being able to use Windows installed fonts or some other issue that is not apparent. Due t...

Re: Missing features

Thanks Stefan. The files are really too large to forward and in one case is heavily protected for copyright so I cannot really do this. That particular DVD does indeed use javascript, but when I look under javascript under file/properties it shows nothing so I am wondering whether javascript is work...

Missing features

Initial impressions of v301.0 were good and certainly sorted out the rendering problem I had with some pdf's on 2.5. The editor also seems to work well, though it is not clear what parts are only available in the Pro version - I got no watermarks with the checks I did. But things are missing.... As ...

Re: Incorrect font display in PDF XChange Pro 2.5

I have just revisited PDF XChange now that Foxit is becoming very bloated and am using 2.5 v210.0. I am having serious problems with this font display issue and most of my semiconductor datasheets show total garbage. See an example in the attachment. Displays fine in Foxit Reader. Wondering whether ...

Re: How to move "Options" tab and page indicator from the bottom

I would also find this useful. You can put any of the other buttons from the Pages Navigation toolbar on the main toolbar except for the one which shows you what page you are on, and there is no other way apparently of showing that page number. At the moment I have moved the Pages Navigation to the ...
