Reading and studying PDF files got easier.

The PDF Equalizer can open up any version of a PDF file without going through a conversion or import process.  It was designed to assist users, especially students, with the growing need for electronic text.

The built-in Notes function lets you take notes and have those notes “synchronized” with the PDF page.  This means that notes you took on page 57 are displayed when you go to page 57.
