Re: PDF Tools - is it 4 or 5?

The 5.x version number is the version number of PDF-XChange 5 (which still contains PDF-Tools 4 from the PDF-XChange 4 series in the Pro version).

Re: Can't move cursor Focus from PDF-XChange back to browser

Actually, in Opera (11.62) and IE 9, for me, it suffices to simply press the "Alt" key to switch the focus from the PDF-XChange browser plugin (2.5.201) back to the browser. But this is only one way - if I press the "Alt" key, while Opera or IE have the focus, the browser menu will open.
