    I hate adobe reader

      Yes, you reading the title correct. This program as document viewer in the industry has become such a pain to use/upgrade that is time that everyone switch to something liter, something fast, something that doesn't need reboot every two weeks. When I download some software I don't expect to see everywhere your icon advertised and program that I didn't choose. (e.g. air ; adobe.com).

       

      What is the deal with page # in thumbnails vs. matching in the document. Can you fix your product once for all and make better not just bigger  or you need a help with that...

       

      Cheers,

            Then why use it. Download one of the many other PDF readers and be done with it.

              I spoke with many users and they all agreed that  thumbnail's numbering don't always match the document # on the right hand side.

              I know this is a feature , but would make more sense if numbers were pulled from the footer of actual page rather then represent total count.

                I wish that is so easy. On personal level yes, there are better and smaller programs, but we talking corporate machines and minimal changes for end- users its confusing and costly.

                 

                143 Mb for a reader  = ?!?!

                 

                also loading in startup programs automaticly .

                 

                asking for reboots.... what a crap.

                 

                every couple of weeks updates ( can users choose to see what is new...)

                 

                 

                you're right sugesting switching but I still hate Adobe Reader, and since no one else saying anything I open this post.

                 

                Cheers,

                  dexie64, you are my hero!  I was that close to buying the ihateadobe.com domain name just now.  I am an application packager and Adobe products just make me cringe every time I have to automate the deployment of one.  It is close to becoming a phobia!
