Just a thought: NEW NAME for PDF-XChange Viewer?

Post by ZoNi » Tue Dec 07, 2010 2:03 pm

Although I use PDF-XChange Viewer for a long time (and I suggest people to use it on my blog and many forums), I still have problems to remember exact name of this great program :D

Sometimes I think it is PDF-XChange, sometimes PDFX-Change, sometimes PDF Change etc :) Plus, I think this name is somehow too complicated.

This is why I open this topic - is it good idea to think about new, better name for PDFX?

My ideas were MyPDF*, SeePDF and PlayPDF*

(* = not available :( )

Any thoughts about this?

Hello ZoNi,

And thanks for your suggestions, but I believe this is not likely to happen.
All our products are in the "PDF XChange -" range - and then comes the name: Viewer, Lite, Standard... so the "PDF XChange" - is legacy - it is how Tracker Software Products started - with products for document exchanging - and I don't see it's likely to change.
The new Version of the Viewer might be named PDF XChange Viewer 2011, so referring to it as "Viewer 2011" should still distinguish it from the other Viewing applications you might discuss in your blog/forums, or "PDF Viewer 2011" if you like :) but the full name will most probably continue to cary the XChange part in it.

Please note that all of the above is just my thoughts and it's John (you can see him post here in the forums sometimes), our CEO that makes the decisions about naming the products and all.

Best,
Stefan

Thank you for your comments :) I usually use "PDFX" when I speak about PDF-XChange Viewer.

Btw, I don't like naming after years, but I see that many program authors do that :)

Btw 2: with or without "-"? ;)

Hi,

In the new V3 we will rename the Viewer - PDFX Viewer ...

For now strictly speaking the correct name is : PDF-XChange Viewer - but as with you many already now it as the PDFX Viewer :-)

Looks like someone is already preparing for the name change ... ;)
