What works

Installs and runs ok. Make sure to read the instructions below!

Commenting tools work as well as undo. Settings dialog shows ok, although I didn't change anything. Deleting comments work and file saves keep those changes.

Drag and drop to the opened application as well as drag and drop on the shortcut to open the file both work.

What does not

Right-clicking on pdf file didn't show adobe reader as an option at first. But it came later, perhaps after I opened a pdf file with it for the first time?

Oddly enough, when "Touch Mode" is enabled, all fonts and icon spacings become bigger.

The sticky note tools (in commenting) doesn't work properly. The sticky note pop-up's edit box shows the background pdf. If the comment text is written in the side bar and the pop-up is opened, the comment text is deleted.


What was not tested

Only version for XP SP3 tested.

I didn't test printing.
