Denis, I mostly use Acrobat Pro, as well. It is very buggy and crashes a
lot. I'm training others to use Acrobat and it's a huge learning curve for
a lot of them. I haven't tried too many other tools for several years,
because I wasn't happy with them back then. I'm playing around in
CommonLook, PAVE, axesPDF so far to see how they do. Just wondering what
else is worth trying. I'd love to have an easy to use alternative for
people whose eyes glaze over with Adobe or for days when Adobe just won't
stop crashing (it does seem to have good days and bad days).

Lisa, I will look into that one, thanks! I think I once tried an older
version of it, but it's worth seeing how they have improved.
