It works better if you use the “Change reading options setting in the Edit menu, and choose “Raw print stream.

I’ve always found it usable, but clunky as hell.

Apart from the fact that a large document say with 20 or 30 pages or even more takes a while to load I have no problems with ACrobat Readder being sluggish, once the document has loaded I can navigate it withut problems.

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?

 

Thanks!
