Just asking to see if anyone would care to chime in on which stand-alone apps you may be using for PDF viewing and printing. I’m fine with just using browsers for ad-hoc viewing of PDFs that are posted online. Sometimes though I just want a full-fledged app for viewing larger documents and especially where printing is concerned.

Adobe Reader is a no-go for me for personal reasons. I’ve used Foxit reader and it worked just fine. Its UI experience was becoming a bit too bloated for my tastes though. I’ve also tried the open source Sumatra PDF reader. It’s a wee bit rough around the edges but it seemed to be OK. I’m just wondering if there are any other options I’m not aware of.

Evince on Linux worked well for me. It's almost as good as MacOS Preview, which I use now. Looks like there is a Windows build. No guarantees, I haven't tried it.

As a full-fledged PDF editor to replace Acrobat, I liked Master PDF Editor over Qoppa.

P.S. Foxit might be better, but it doesn't run on Linux, so I didn't try it.
