Okular is fast, reliable, can edit/annotate documents, and has very customizable toolbars. I've decided that it's my favorite document / pdf viewer.

A well-made, feature-packed app, but it doesn't fit with Linux Mint.

It's the old version. Better download the Flatpak one

In my opinion, far better than the default gnome document viewer.

El mejor visor de pdf, maneja perfectamente archivos de pdf pesados y el buscador es muy bueno.

Better than Atril or the default Document Viewer in Linux Mint 20.1 Ulyssa.

I have been using Okular to read my PDF and ePub formatted books and I am impressed. It does not crash or seize up like qpdfview does. The reading pane holds the zoom from chapter to chapter, unlike qpdfview. I really like this document viewer an will continue to use it.

Okular highlights are not compatible with Gmail (highlights are not visible in Gmail). Using Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon.

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
