Considering the wide use of PDF readers, we know that there are many on the market today with some killer features. In fact, some even come with optical character recognition for PDF.
However, not every PDF reader out there is equipped with such incredible features, and you need to be very careful when it comes to picking a PDF reader.
Surprisingly, most PDF readers are available for free, however you will usually have to buy a license or premium version in order to use some advanced features.
This is a good thing as you can use a software before you decide to purchase it. Still, it can be very time consuming, which is why we have created this article so that you can make the right decision when it comes to choosing a PDF reader.
Without much ado, let’s have a look at some of the unique features that you won’t find in many PDF readers:
You must be thinking what good will a slideshow do to you? A lot, actually.
Now think of a presentation, where there is a nice to change slides every few minutes. The job requires you to walk to your computer, use a remote or have someone do it for you. This can be frustrating, but not with the slideshow mode.
When you have the slideshow option in your PDF reader, you can simply select all the PDF files that you want to display and make the process hassle-free and quick.
You can choose the timer according to your own requirements, and the slides or pages will change accordingly. This will take some of the burden off your shoulder, and allow you to give a kickass presentation.
It addition to this, you may also be able to add some animations, based on the PDF reader you have chosen. Once again, not all readers offer this feature, so make sure to be careful.
Capture On-screen Activities
Another unique feature that you won’t find in many PDF readers but just a few, is the ability to capture on-screen activities.
With this option, you can record whatever happens to a specific file. This is a great feature that makes your files much more secure, and the system fool-proof.
With this feature, if a person shares a files the activity will be recorded, or when someone makes any changes to a file that will be recorded as well.
This is a handy option as it will let you know who accessed your file and what did they do with it.
However, this option is limited to devices only. Meaning, you can only see the activities that happened on the device that had screen recording option activated.
Other than that, you can write memos and record your voice along with it too.
Not many PDF readers have this option. Night mode makes it easy to read documents or books when there are poor light conditions.
Some PDF readers lets you change the background from white to black to enhance readability in low light.
