What works

Everything I have wanted to use.

What does not

  • Text fails to rerender properly if you scroll.  Just use the page up and page down keys instead, or the arrow keys (slowly).
  • Text annotations are not saved.  I fixed this problem by copying arial*.ttf from my Windows partition into the folder ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts.
  • The application does not work using the 64 bit version of wine.  However, I had no trouble on my 64 bit OS once I installed the 32 bit wine packages


What was not tested

Most features other than the comment and markup tools. Recently I bought a licence key and was able to unlock the extra features, but have not yet had any call to use them.

Additional Comments

As far as I am aware, running PDF-Xchange Viewer under wine is the only way that a Linux user can annotate pdf files.
