I could be wrong, but I do not think others allow select text to copy it and have a snapshot tool !??Embarassed

@ Jeanjean: Actually, most of them do. PDF X-change Viewer, for example, has a whole array of tools. It's a great prog.

I just read up on this. It looks good. I am thinking I might get it.

Which one did you get?  I would like to be able to print and edit docs etc.

@ Ebony: I just have the basic free version of PDF-XChange Viewer. But it still has an impressive array of tools. The link is http://www.docu-track.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer

I much prefer it to Foxit (others will disagree I'm sure, but it comes down to personal preference). I scored a licence for Nitro Pro version 6 some time back when they were being given away. And while it's a really good prog, I ended up going back to PDF-XChange Viewer.

@ phoenix_rising

You're right (of course) about the tools of PDF Viewer (I have it also on my PC).
I don't use very much such a program and the toolbar was disapeared probably during an update.
Following your reply and a little research I could it made reappear by pressing F11.

Thanks.

@ Jeanjean: That's great! I'll have to keep that in mind in case the toolbar ever vanishes on mine.

I passed on the GOTD, but I got this one (with no problemsSurprisedSurprised)and set it as default.

You are right it does have array of features. I tinkered with it a bit. I like the typewriter feature.

We are now 3 for 3. Still tapping toe on Lavasoft. Confused Hmmm free??  I am thinking yes.LaughLaugh

Thanks for asking this question a couple of years ago, and all the answers folks!

 

I've just acquired a relic: an HP / Compaq TC1000 Tablet PC  ;)  I've had the use of one for an international trip one time, and liked the compactness, and it's kinda cool to use something so behind the times yet ground-breaking – makes me feel all tech-y.

 

Back to the topic:  it runs WinXP TabletPC Edition, and is small on resources: less than 500MB RAM and the ol' Transmeta Crusoe processor running at about 1GHz  SOOOOOOO…… what would now be a small, light, effective PDF reader?

 

And additionally are there any eBook readers (a-la Kindle) suitable for said beastie?

 

Thanks all!

Definitely SumatraPDF. It has come a loong way in the recent years and I would dub it as one of the best in terms of being lightweight – which is what you need in this case. It doesn't have all the bells and features as the others out there, but if all you need is a reader, this is it (it also installs a browser plugin). From my experiences, the rendering quality is hardly discernible, if not better, than the other bloated commercial readers.

@ jevvv

Sumatra would certainly be one which would be light on resources…

 Adobe has their official app for WP7. Not sure what's taking them so long on their WP8 update.

My biggest complaint with WP8 is how many WP7 are still not update for 8. Even Microsoft's own Photosynth is updated.

I too am a big fan of Sumatra. I've used it for years. Its very light on resources, opens quickly, and integrates with your browser. It also lacks nag screens and the like, and does allow for updating from within itself. Can't go wrong with Sumatra.
