Yikes, the Acrobat update alone weighs in at over 170MB! Hey Adobe, any chance you can un-bloat these apps any time soon??

Oh, Thanks for the update notice though! :)

if you are on a Mac, simply use the free "Preview" application that comes pre-installed and don't bother with Adobe Reader...

If you are on Windows...it is VERY tiny footprint wise...

Do not want to (or are not permitted to) use or install ANY application on that box you are using at work ?

Browser based PDF viewing comes FREE from Google in their email client (gMail) which has a free viewer or use the Google Chrome browser.

The REASON Adobe reader is so LARGE is because it needs to deal with all sorts of complex documents, so, if anything, it will get BIGGER, not smaller.

I'm in a prepress/production environment, so PitStop is a necessity and therefore the Adobe bloat also. (I do use FoxIt at home on the PeeCee though, it's very zippy.) Just wish Adobe would wise-up & make a more streamlined version for Print Production, strip out all the unnecessary "features" that we never use (3D rendering, seriously??) and keep it from constantly crashing. Ahhhhh, I can dream right?

Prepress PitStop people have pounced on PitStop Extreme --> an Adobe-less, stand-alone PDF Perfecting program.

click here --> to Watch the DEMO MOVIE ! <-- click !

and, well, related to 3D rendering, I would suggest that while few people print in 3D, many many many PDF files are distributed by AutoDesk users that contain 3D and many other things that, while may never be printed, are essential to the digital information that is excahnged - DWF files also find themselves needing to become print ready, so thank the fine folks at Adobe that we can represent them in a way that can be printed without much expertise - there are many many verticals that need "things" to be represented in PDF, and I expect the PDF specifcation will continue to evolve (and get BIGGER, not smaller) - and, it would follow that PDF hndleing things need more code to manae and display that, so do not waste your time worring about memory foot prints - just buy more ram and bigger hard drives to accomedate and be glad you have a job !

LOL

Anyway - who knows, maybe Adobe will toss it all and go with the XML version of PDF - Adobe Mars.

《One Piece 遊戲》你想挑戰海軍和海賊強大的人物么?

 《One Piece 遊戲》全能支撐著悟吉塔並且排名第3 就是他本身屬性全能的緣故比如說肉搏氣合炮舞空腳腹擊打轉身樣樣具備機動性氣蛋快速爆藍可以說是電3最全能的角色幾乎什麼都有,要說他唯一的短處就是必殺不夠強力以及聚氣速度很慢了。至於超2悟空和超一星龍誰強,就是要看大家自己的想法了 因為超一星龍還是有一個優點 就是四條血。 這一招比元氣彈還難閃也是防禦不能雖然用下降或者直接橫著按衝刺跑開都有可能躲開這一招, 但是命中率還是非常的高的最好抓住讓對手不敢亂動的時機下使用。《航海王》,全稱為《刀劍神域》,是日本文學史上篇幅最長的通俗小說,被成為江戶文學之冠,至今尚有較深遠的影響。與之前上映的神與神和復活的不同,本次的劇場版原作者鳥叔並沒有更多的參與,無論是故事情節或者故事角色,都是由豐太郎獨自設計創作的。okaygame先說爆藍吧…See More
