Favourite PDF reader. If you rename a bookmark, the old name remains in the background while typing. I would like to have the highlighter in the toolbar instead of putting "Review" in the tool bar and then choosing the highlighter

A little slower than MuPDF (which is to be expected), but has tons of awesome customization and view option, which is exactly what I was looking for. Looks like I found my default PDF viewer.

I use to see diagrams in pdf. And the zoom is one the best. Selection is not good. I do not know any better.

Nice software. It would be better if it had the ability to add text. I often get forms to complete in PDF format without the fillable fields. The ability to add text would allow me to complete the forms.

The only linux-native reader I found that would show the annotations that a colleague sent me from horrid adobe software, but this was a pain to set up as this package did not include the necessary dependencies. To open the document I also installed kdelibs5-plugins, kdelibs5-data and oxygen-icon-theme. Thanks to user1529891 on askubuntu for that solution.

Hell of an application. This is essential for everyone who wants to get rid of those greedy adobe! Maybe and editing function to delete or merge pages would be nice but this app already has almost features I need

If it complains about missing plugins, you may need some KDE libs. See the Linux Mint Release Notes: Issues with KDE apps
