Sumatra PDF 3.0


The user interface of Sumatra PDF will not attract you with anything and it may even draw you back with its bright yellow background. Hopefully it is only visible at the beginning and once you open a file it goes away. You can drag-and-drop the file which is the subject of a preview or use the "Open a document" link on the home screen. All previously viewed documents are shown with thumbnail icons and each one of them can be quickly opened there. A link-like button in the lower right corner can hide this feature of the program.

If you want to use a different viewer you can select it from the list shown in the File drop-down menu. There you can close, rename, print, send, etc. any document and also take a look at the currently opened document. The Settings menu will allow you to get to the program options, edit the advanced options or change the interface language.

Basic Operations

Sumatra PDF is used just like any similar PDF viewer and has the same viewing functions and features. Users may switch from a single page view to a book view, facing or showing the pages continuously. Any document can be rotated to the left or to the right and even a full screen preview is possible. You can use the Go To menu to reach the next, previous, first, last or any page as well, as the page window located in the toolbar.

Zooming is possible in many various ways and the maximum magnification can be 6400%. It is nice to know that the start-up default layout can be changed among seven different options. Sumatra PDF 3.0 may also become your default PDF reader if you activate this check-box in the Options window.


Whatever we say about Sumatra PDF 3.0 will be true and all will be good. During our test the program didn't show any weaknesses and did not stop responding at any time. It is very useful that users can open multiple instances of the application showing different files at the same time. All these things plus the fact that it is a free-to-download software, it is easy to use and it can operate very quickly with any file sizes makes us recommend it to all users and give it a very high rating.
