PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area, and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.
Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.
Note: The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware), and while some "Pro" features (see settings) can still be used, but they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving.
Note2: The download link above will provide the 32-bit version of PDF-XChange Viewer. To get the 64-bit (which is also portable, provided the 'portable.dat' file is present in the program folder) it's necessary to download the corresponding installer package (either EXE or MSI) and extract the executable from it afterwards.
