PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.322.4 Updated

  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 May 2017
  • Suggested by Myles

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 can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

Sadly, V 2.5.317 seems to be the last version of this Viewer: "The PDF-XChange Viewer has been discontinued and replaced by the PDF-XChange Editor which is now available including all the features of the Viewer and much, much more. . ."

FYI, additional languages OCR downloads are available from http://www.tracker-software.com/pdf-xchange-viewer-ocr ...

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

I tried Snipaste for awhile and gave it an honest chance but 4me it doesn't compare to zScreen (I use older version) which I have used for a very long time. I'm really open to finding and using a new or different screen capture pgm. I just haven't found it yet. Not to take anything away from Snipaste cuz in fact it is a good app and easy to use.

This app was worth installing just for the ability to disable the minimum width restriction on vertical taskbars. Now it's nice and narrow.

Right-click the tray icon and select 'Advanced Options', then set the 'no_width_limit' value to '1'.

Thank you, Midas. I will start to see the forum more closely. I only read the feeds here using QuietRSS and I never see the forum. I'll do it from now on. As always, you are an excellent indication for new applications and utilities.

This thing seems to always get released with old versions of pepperflash, making it a security risk.

Website appears to be down. I can't even find a legit download link to the portable x64 package.

Tried again, and the site is now online.
