No worries i know, i was just kidding...I'm not looking for an argument
I'm just looking for usable info
Together, these features let you open a PDF in a tab right in the main Zotero window, clean up metadata for the parent item while viewing the PDF, add highlights and notes, drag individual annotations to a note or create a new note from all of the item's annotations, cite other items right in the note using the familiar citation dialog, and, when you're ready, click a button to insert the entire note into your word processor, where you can continue working on your document with active Zotero citations.
- A PDF reader built directly into Zotero
- A new tabbed interface
- A powerful new note editor
- A new “Add Note” button in the Zotero plugins for Word, LibreOffice, and Google Docs

Adobe Reader is just a ghastly ressource hog. If I have to use Windows, I use Sumatra PDF instead. Opensource, only around 7 MB download and also reads ePub, MOBI and many other stuff as well.Wishful thinking, I wondered whether Wine would run the offline installer for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (2021.005.20060). Not so.

WineHQ - Adobe Reader – latest rating Garbage.
Yep, at the very least the older versions of Acrobat Pro were a little lighter in memory (and actually work with Wine).

When I worked in research we used Adobe Reader/Writer and Prism on Apple computers. There were very rare Windows computers.
Exactly. They pretty much should have stopped there.The invention by adobe of postscript was a great addition of functionality!
Actually, most of the functionality moved behind a paywall to Adobe Creative Cloud, and the bloat on localhost is just the code that Adobe had to come up with to enforce the licenses and protect their revenue stream.Exactly. They pretty much should have stopped there.
... in 1984
Obviously being a little dramatic but can you really say that Acrobat Reader from today has added so much more functionality compared to two decades ago (Acrobat 6?) as to warrant a 1+gig RAM and disk requirement? It is slightly mad in my opinion.
Where my partner works (a publishers), they all still use Acrobat Pro 9 in a Windows XP VM on VMware Fusion because it actually has *more* functionality than today.
Adobe's official Reader is available on Windows, Android and Macs free of charge, and it's up to date. No need for second-party PDF viewers on just those platforms. However, if you want to read a PDF on a different platform - ooh, have we got a problem here, my dear users!<https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=5973> there's Gold for 3.1.1, more recent SumatraPDF-3.3.3-64-install.exe will not run for me.
