Have a question about PDFView? Need an alternative?

PDFView is a lightweight Mac OS X application to display PDF files.

What does it offers more than Preview?

  • By default, the main window will open up maximized, and the zoom level will be automatically the highest possible to fit the document into your screen - so that documents will become finally readable. Especially valuable if you are using a small size screen.
  • PDFView supports a powerful full screen mode, and a innovative "presentation" mode, in which nothing is displayed but your document, not even scroll bars. This mode is designed with Beamer user in mind, but not restricted to them.

What's New

Version 0.14.3:
  • Fixed a crash, that occurred randomly when the document was updated.
  • Restored search.
  • Slightly updated German translation.
  • Warning: the outline status is unpredictable, after an update: it may work, it may not work, it may crash, it may be out-of-date. I'm gonna work on it for the next release.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later
