Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

If you want something to view PDFs with then it's fine, if you want to do any sort of altering or modifying to a PDF then saving it, you get watermarks, editing is payed.

With that being said, the Editor by far the best PDF program I have ever used, the old X-Change Viewer, SumatraPDF, Adobe Reader, they all got nothing on this.

I recommend against updating to the latest version.
The reviewer from here http://www.softerviews.org/PDF-XChange.html, he said "I uninstalled version 7.0 because it changed too many features that I liked." But I'm not sure if he meant the free or paid versions features. His review still reflects that of version 6.0.

You can still download v6.0.322.7 and any other older version from here https://www.tracker-software.com/versio ... nge-editor or just change the current download link of PDFXEdit7_Portable.zip to PDFXEdit6_Portable.zip. Basically 7 to a 6.

Until this last update, I totally agree. It'll probably remain my default PDF viewer, I'll just see if I can track down the earlier version.

Off topic: For a few hours more - 30% off via http://www.bitsdujour.com/software/pdf- ... deals-home
(the Pro version will appear in the next couple of weeks) - they seem to offer this once a year via Bits du Jour.

A really nice window management feature I hope I see elsewhere: move a tab to the side or lower half of a window. Just drag-and-drop a single tab and a 5-box object shows up in the center of your screen:

Point your mouse at one of the quadrants (in this case the lower one) and you get this:

I'm going to use this for ease of reference between multiple docs, but this is especially useful for very large or vertical-style screens.
