    Hello, I am new here and I would like to hear your opinions please

    I tried many pdf readers as I read a lot and my main issues with them
    that I store them on my HDD and pdf readers can't just read the whole file into memory or even pagefile(on ssd)
    this makes reading big pdfs (100mb+) cumbersome and laggy because it reads the file from the hdd as I scroll
    no matter what cache setting I use in the program
    currently I am using Nuance pdf reader but I used adobe, foxit, tracker software, nitro and none of them satisfied me
    I got 8 gigs of ram but for what....

    Maybe a RamDisk will help you by that problem. There quite a bit Free available, just google for it.

    Yes, but then I still have to copy the pdfs to the ramdisk one by one, and i have an ssd its enough fast also, but I can't copy my whole library to it
    common sense dictates that a freakin program should load the pdf into the ram...

    Thank you, I was not aware of this option
    I thought I would have to manually put the files into the ramdisk...

    Well, I tried to do what you said but I got some issues
    I can't just open the pdf with the ramdisk I need to make a macro which copies it to the ramdisk launches a PDF viewer and maybe removes it after closing it...
    I'll try to figure it out...

    Sorry for to tell, I didn't ever used the free version, I use the full Professional Version of MacroToolWorks. In that I could just "Record" a whole sentences of commands and save as an self running Macro , or even .exe. That simplyfies the whole, just need to do the procedure once!

    I just checked and also the free version has an macro recorder! Test it!
