Nitro PDF Reader is a reader and PDF document editor that adds a set of interesting functions, which make this program a good alternative to Acrobat Reader. It is lighter than Acrobat, and although it is not as much as the Foxit Reader, it has more functions than the latter (and does not add advertising or insert watermarks).
This reader presents an attractive interface, with an aesthetic similar to Microsoft Word, with menus whose options are clear and intuitive.
The documents can be read as comfortably as possible, allowing select from various types of views : Default (sample to a page), continuously (without division of pages), opposite (of 2 pages, simulating An open book) and full screen. Nitro Reader allows you to rotate pages and zoom in on them. It is possible to open several documents at once, and even split the screen to display two different documents in the same window.
Nitro Reader lets you include notes or comments in documents (which you can hide or show as you see fit) and highlight, cross out or underline text , which are very useful for students when you want to highlight or remember important details. Added comments can be edited or deleted later. You can choose the color and transparency level of the notes and comments.
Besides working as a reader, this application allows you to create PDF documents, having various formats and various configuration options, such as: fonts, page size, orientation, quality, etc., with the possibility of adding metadata, protection with Password, and other items. It also allows you to convert documents created or edited with other programs, to the PDF format, from the print option (selecting "Nitro PDF Creator" from the list of available printers).
It allows to add signatures (the image obtained when scanning the same) to any document through the tool QuickSign, and thus to go from a manuscript rubric to an electronic signature.
Nitro integrates with Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers, through plug-ins that allow you to read open documents from the web directly in the browser.
