Flexible Reader for PDF file editing

PDF X-change Viewer—Flexible Reader for PDF file editing

As I have introduce before, that Adobe PDF reader and Foxit reader are the most popular Viewers for PDF reading. And these days a survey on AnyBizSoft Facebook shows that, in addition to the readers I mentioned above, PDF X-change viewer attracts the attentions of some users. And actually, I am one of them. I nearly cannot help me to love the reader because it just like PDF editor at my first glance. Here is my experience on the third great PDF reader.

PDF-XChange Viewer is another excellent alternative to Adobe Reader except Foxit Reader. It free and fast, just as Foxit Reader. Its interface looks remarkably like Adobe Reader, but with more command icons on the top. Besides viewing PDF files, this PDF Reader also have some additional functions:

* Add Comments and Annotations to any PDF file (subject to security settings)
* Markup pages with text and objects
* Type directly on any PDF page, not just Adobe enabled forms documents - in Typewriter mode.
* Export PDF pages or entire files to any one of the supported Image formats including BMP, JPEG, TIFF, PNG and many more
* Extract text from a PDF page/File
* Make your navigation of large or complex PDF files both simple and enjoyable switch the extended functionality of our 'Loupe' and the 'Pan' Window tools
* Fill and Save Adobe Forms to disk, email or 'post'
* Full JavaScript Engine included
* Updated JPEG2000 Compression support - improving speed
* And many more features such as Rotate and 'Save', Email files etc.

If you are carefully enough and if you have used Foxit Reader before, you may find many functions are the same in these two PDF readers. And actually, either of them can meet our ordinary needs to read, comment and simply edit PDF files. The mainly differences i guess are mainly because different using habits that divides the users into different groups. Generally speaking, they are both excellent alternatives to the bloated Adobe Reader. If you are not used to use Foxit Reader, or if Foxit Reader sometimes doesn't work properly, you can give PDF-XChange Viewer a try without hesitate. On the opposite case, you can choose Foxit Reader as the best alternative.
