Yes please, go back to Windows standards : Case in Menu, keyboard shortcuts including Esc to exit message boxes and such, tab and enter to select and validate dialog-box choices, etc
Yes please, thumbnail preview : an absolute must.
For me, viewing a PDF file or working on it are two very different things. Most of the time it’s for viewing, which means that most of the menus, the single-window mode and such are just in the way. For viewing it should be minimal with all required features to quickly navigate, select and copy. Nothing more.
Important things for viewing:
- Hyper-fast loading
- Minimal menus, tools, side windows, etc. Contents is what matter, just like a printed document.
- One window per document: allows quick side by side view with other document (PDF, Word, Excel, other…) <-- this you have, I known; very good!
- Keyboard shortcuts for navigating quickly.
Just a couple of thoughts inspired by CADGroup’s post.
And please don’t underestimate these features: PDF Architect is not the default PDF reader on my system because of theses things, mainly thumbnail preview actually. And working with PDF documents with PDF Architect is painful because it’s too far away from Windows standards (especially missing or undocumented keyboard shortcuts).
Thanks for listening.
