Re: renaming measurements

There is no difference between the free versions or purchased versions of the viewer or editor. Except, the free version will add watermarks to your PDF files if you use any of the Pro features. You will see a warning if you try to do this.

Are there Any Voice Controls?

I looked in preferences, Plugins, but did not see any options for changing the voice volume, speed, or accent.

Am I missing something? Are there any plans to improve this? It's a bit fast and too quiet to be as useful as it might be.

In the Viewer, I can use F3 to find the next word with the Find Toolbar, and Shift F3 to find the previous occurrence.

In the Editor, these commands are not on the Customise dialogue, so I guess that F3 is hard-wired as the Find Next command, but Shift F3 does not find the previous result.
