Re: May need alternative to Adobe Acrobat Reader

Acrobat is always kind of sluggish.

If it’s not a scanned image document and is straightforward in general (iE, an etext or something), you can use qRead. It’s a nice little programme that very quickly opens pdf and epub files. I like it because it’s very fast. However it doesn’t have many of the features Adobe has. It’s generally meant for books or similar context with straightforward, linear text.

Hi listers:


Recently, I have been needing to access some PDF’s.  For some reason, whenever I try to use Acrobat Reader DC, the program seems to be very sluggish, sometimes, even unresponsive.  Is this becoming a problem?  If so, is there another solution that will work better with JFW?
