Sumatra PDF is a slim, free PDF, XPS, DjVu, PDF, ePub, MOBI, CHM, CBZ, and CBR reader for Windows with a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features.
This reader is small and starts up very fast. Options are a little thin on the ground but Sumatra PDF provides a very comfortable environment for reading PDFs. And you can print documents without much hassle. Furthermore, you can take this over Adobe Acrobat any day for looking at eBooks. Also, Sumatra PDF is designed for portable use. It’s just one file with no external dependencies so you can easily run it from an external USB drive. And it takes up little disk space.
Portable Edition is the lightweight app, so you can view PDF files on the go. You can place it on your USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive, or a CD. Also, you can use it on any computer, without leaving any personal information behind.
Sumatra PDF can do for you:
- open PDF files via the menu
- open PDF files via drag and drop
- set different zoom levels via the menu
Sumatra PDF does not lock the PDF file. Without closing the PDF file a user can recompile the text document and generate a new PDF file and then press the R key to refresh the PDF document. Printing is achieved in Sumatra by transforming each PDF page into a bitmap image. This results in very large spool files and potentially slow printing on printers with little memory. Hyperlinks that are embedded in PDF documents are not active in Sumatra.
This reader is multilingual, with 20 community-contributed translations. Supports SyncTeX, a bidirectional method for synchronizing TeX source and PDF output produced by pdfTeX or XeTeX.
