Issue 165 HotPick Zathura and a suggestion for another...

Postby johnlane » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:17 pm

Good to see Zathura making a hotpick. I've been using it as my main PDF viewer for ages but I do find from time to time that I need to go back to Adobe to read some PDF files. I'm using 0.2.1 with the pdf-poppler 0.2.1 plugin. Mike - do you find the same?

Also, I think Baobab which was briefly mentioned on the last page of the mag is a great tool and worthy of HotPick status. Perhaps Ben could show it to Mike... :)

I'd never heard of Baobab before reading that. But I have peed in the tree!

Hi John,

Zathura has handled everything I've thrown at it so far, although I've had problems with the Poppler engine in the past in other apps... YMMV. And thanks for the Baobab recommendation -- I'll have a good look at it!
