Илья Пацев Great software, and I loved it, but they changed the GUI and it is a major change. This made the experience worse for me personally. The way that highlighting worked before (ver 6) was perfect, and it was the most important single feature I use for my schoolwork. With version 7.1.5.425 I just want to roll back to version 6, or find alternative suite.

Md. Sayem Shahriar While there is slow performance reading a document in Adobe Reader, this one I found useful.
