Nitro Reader and Slow File Open Times



  • For about the last 6-12 months we have been putting Nitro Reader on our new PCs as an alternative to Adobe because I think Nitro is better overall. But I feel like in the last few weeks, we've been prompted to change people back to Adobe Reader. Somehow Nitro is taking longer to open large PDF files. The open time for Adobe Reader seems to be sometimes 5-7 seconds less than it takes Nitro for larger PDF files. I've stood and watched people in other departments try to open large PDF files and seen this happen consistently. We're talking about opening files in a SMB share on a server with 15K SAS drives.

    I personally really like Nitro Reader and have not experienced this issue. But then again, I am not really opening large PDF files as people in HR / AR / AP / Quality might be.

    Has anyone else experienced the issue I mention here?

    Haven't used Nitro in forever. But my overall finding is that anytime that I move people away from Adobe Reader I always end up moving them back eventually.
