Evince for Windows is a document viewer for multiple document formats. It currently supports pdf, postscript, djvu, tiff and dvi. The goal of evince is to replace the multiple document viewers that exist on the GNOME Desktop with a single simple application.
The tool offers nothing more than standard options for viewing PDFs, so it is accessible to all types of users, even the ones with no previous experience in such programs.
Evince Document Viewer For Windows Features
- Search: Integrated search displaying the number of results found and highlights the results on the page.
- Page Thumbnails: Thumbnails of pages show quick reference for where you’d like to go in a document.
- Document Indexes: When index information is included in a PDF Evince will display it in a tree format.
- Document Printing: Using the GNOME/GTK printing framework Evince can print any document it can open
- Encrypted Document Viewing: Evince can open PDF documents that have been encrypted
The installation procedure is brief and does not require special input. Once it finishes, you can run the app to view a regular window with a clean and intuitive layout, representing Evince’s interface.
Opening PDF documents can be done using either the file browser or drag-and-drop support. So, you can navigate pages, toggle between continuous and dual display mode, use a search function when dealing with large amounts of data, as well as rotate pages left and right.
It is also possible to jump to a particular page, switch to full screen or presentation mode, zoom in and out, fit the page to width or height, customize the toolbar, as well as save settings as default for future runs of Evince.
