Please don't remove Viewer from website

Post by leishirsute » Wed Jun 08, 2016 1:30 pm

I installed the Editor and found the Viewer to be a better interface for me.
I understand it is discontinued, but please keep the last version on the website to be able to be downloaded.
I also like the way the Viewer allows for more text editing without DEMO watermarks.

Hello leishirsute,

It is not removed - just moved to a separate category along with some other older products:
https://www.tracker-software.com/produc ... scontinued

Can you please explain in a few more details - what editing are you able to do with the free Viewer that is not possible in the free Editor?

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,
Sorry, I just saw this post. I didn't get an email notification of your reply.
I like way the toolbars display and can be managed in the PDF Viewer vs the Editor version. I find the horizontal shrinking and expansion of the toolbars to be confusing.
I also like that the Viewer shows the select stamp in the toolbar.
I am not fond of the Stamp rotation guide feature always enabled. I wish it were a selectable option.

Hope this helps,
Mike

Hi Mike,

You've probably not subscribed to the topic back when you posted your original question.
Certainly - if the Viewer suits your needs more - you can continue using that product, but no new features or fixes will be added to it!

Regards,
Stefan

Silly question: but why is the Viewer still being updated? The latest version is now "2.5.321.0 (Updated on 6 Mar 2017)".

Hi Joxon,

Thanks for the post - Some very few changes are still being made at our discretion, but this is very few. Mostly there are improvements to the installer, or we're simply updating the build number for continuity.

Thanks,
If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards

I'm just chiming in here in support of Viewer. I concur with Mike. Viewer is a much better fit for my needs and sensibilities.
I am thrilled to see that it is still getting attention and that there appears to be intent to keep it available for download for awhile (hope it's a long while).

Brian

Hi Brian,

Yes - there is still no intention to remove the Viewer, but it will eventually start to show it's age - and given that it has not received any development over more than two years now will also have an impact.

Regards,
Stefan
