Document (PostScript, PDF) viewer
  20 reviews

Evince is a simple multi-page document viewer. It can display and print PostScript (PS), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), DjVu, DVI, Portable Document Format (PDF) and XML Paper Specification (XPS) files. When supported by the document, it also allows searching for text, copying text to the clipboard, hypertext navigation, and table-of-contents bookmarks.

Almost as slow (if not slower) than the default pdf viewer that comes with mint (and that is SLOW). I was expecting more.

Best one paired with Recoll. Also lists ALL search results which I find super helpful while searching within an ebook. Okular or Foxit don't handle these things very well.

Middle click for hand tool dude. Control + mousewheel zooms too.

Needs hand tool, a staple of PDF readers since at least the early 2000s.

Quick and clean, but doesn't keep view settings when selecting page from index, that's annoying

After lo these many years of GNOME project neglect, evince is still feature crippled. NO MULTIPLE TAB SUPPORT - wth? Zooming is awkward and sometimes doesn't work. The only decent PDF viewer for Linux I've found is (closed source and free) Foxit Reader.

Thow it's good, it's not that good. I can not see some parts from a PDF single page invoice. I had to use the browser to see it.

Unstable on several builds/distros, and prone to crashing. With a focus on a simple element of displaying media, the program should be patched well before release. Okular is my choice for PDF viewing.

Good but not as good as e.g. 'Okular' where highlighting, underlining, adding, copying some text a.o. is concerned. Students e.o. need to be able to do these basic things. And they have to be able to read the changed pdf's afterwards on different computer systems with different operating systems.
