The PDF-XChange Viewer is a free alternative to Adobe Reader & Co. With the PDF-XChange Viewer you can quickly and easily open, read and print every type of PDF documents. You can quickly flick through multi-paginated documents with a mini preview and you can start multiple files at the same time with the help of tabs.
So far, so good. But what distinguishes the PDF-XChange Viewer from similar programs, is the opportunity to take care of comments, notes and marks directly at the PC. Elsewhere, this feature would cost quite some money. The screenshot feature enables you to copy parts of a document to other apps. The export feature even lets you convert the whole PDF into an arbitrary graphic format.
There's also a paid for Pro version of version 2.5 of the PDF-XChange Viewer with even more features than in the free edition.
Verdict: The PDF-XChange Viewer is our number 1 under the PDF viewers. At a similar speed to Foxit Reader the free tool offers even more useful tools. And with this competition Adobe Reader is left with nothing.
Perfect for students: Scripts are often just handed out as PDFs. Thanks to PDF-XChange Viewer you can edit the learning materials as if they were on paper. Divide important from unimportant section and strike through, underline and highlight text components. Even little drawings are no problem.
