Usually I have like 30+ pdf files opened in Sumatra Reader at the end of my day. Some of those pdfs are needed once a week, some once a month (because it’s very handy to have all your ref base opened at once with all that pdfs scattered around in so many directories and all).
Wouldn’t it be nice to have Sumatra load only the last VISIBLE pdf file at start? And not trying to load all the other 29+ pdfs at once (unless they are really needed, which is when they became VISIBLE too)? Because thise pdf may be really heavy these days (I saw a 1 Gb toster manual once).
Every time, clicking on Sumatra icon, I have to WAIT. Oh boy, with 30+ pdf opened on last session it takes forever to start! On firing up Task Manager, I can see Sumatra have already eaten up about 2+ Gb of my RAM. Even if all I wanted is just to quick look at some 10 Mb pdf file and quit! No good at all.
Yes, I have “ReloadModifiedDocuments = false” in my SumatraPDF-settings.txt.
Also, when crashed (usually post-sleep/hibernation), Sumatra always lose all its opened tabs, starting very quickly but with no pdfs opened. Which is real PITA with all those 30+ pdf from different directories and all. But may be it’s because of using beta.
Sumatra Reader is the best.
