    The PDF viewer of windows 8


    Why does it always, when I turn the page , zoom out of the zooming in I've just done? It makes it impossible to read a PDF

    Is there any way to stop it doing this? Just to leave the zoom the sane for the whole document ?

    I have been using Foxit PDF Reader for a few years and never had a problem. It's Free.

    Don't download Foxit. There were reports of a virus it carries.

    I used Foxit for many years but I have scrapped it and use Sumatra now.


    Download Sumatra PDF 2.4 - FileHippo.com

    It is apparently with the downloads or updates. I cannot find the thread any more but it sounded serious. Here is a thread from the Foxit forum that discusses it.

    Does Foxit Reader free 6.1.4.0217 have malware? - Foxit Corporation Forums

    Just the fact that it is such a big discussion item makes me suspicious.

    Thank's for the link.
    Very discouraging reading. Even though I have not found anything on my machine they mentioned, I will be removing it.

    Another vote for PDF-Xchange here. Been using it for a year or more and it's the best, hands-down.
