Is Editor ZIP download portable ?

Post by bawldiggle » Mon Sep 19, 2016 10:13 pm

.
I want to trial Editor without Editor sabotaging my faithful "Viewer"
Q1: is Editor ZIP portable :?:

EDIT: Is the extracted EXE portable, ie, on an USB device ?

Currently using Viewer 2.5.214.0 (Dec-2013) ... ancient I know, but it works without a hitch :)

To move up to Editor hinges on Toolbars and their icon sizes. See my post in Jul-2013 Editor toolbars too big for laptop screen
- my rhetorical question is ... are toolbars/icons in Editor resizable for small screen laptops ?
- and/or escape ribbon space hogs

Obviously we want to test "Editor" on laptops before committing to Editor

Thank you :)

Hello bawldiggle,

Thank you for the post. Actually, the Editor and Viewer can be installed side by side without conflict.

We supply a portable Editor: http://www.tracker-software.com/PDFXEdit_Portable.zip

The Editor UI is very customizable. Please take a look at this KB for more details: http://www.tracker-software.com/knowled ... he-Editor-

I hope this helps!

Thank you Patrick for such a quick response :)

Your suggestion to look at How do I Customize toolbars in the Editor is exactly what I am looking for.
- 10/10 to Tracker Software.

During my hiatus with Editor (waiting for a more appropriate toolbar structure for laptops) I trialed other PDF apps. None get even close to PDF-XChange.
- one offered their program for <$10, the trap was I had to pay extas (multiple times) to get addons to make their program functional.
- others were downright weak

I am so pleased Tracker have followed through on the Toolbar problem on small screens ... very professional, and thank from our small team of five.

Regards from dow-nunder :)
