    Hey Everyone,

    I'm having and issue with Adobe Reader. Whenever I load up a PDF into adobe reader, the scrolling tends to be very choppy and slow but when I open the same PDF in Preview, everything runs smoothly and nice.

    I've tried to Google search a solution but unfortunately I have yet to find anything useful. Can anyone provide a fix or some input?

    Thanks for your time.

    Adobe isn't as optimised for os x as preview is unfortunately. Lazy programmers. It probably has something to do with Open CL not being supported by Adobe Reader

    I am also getting the same problem. So how do I open a PDF doc sent as an email in preview.

    Thanks

    Right click attachment -> Open With… -> Preview

    Setting Preview or another app as the default for PDFs:
    - select a PDF in Finder
    - press Command-I to Get Info…
    - go to the "Open With…" subpanel of the Get Info window
    - select the application to open with
    - click the "Apply for All…" button that's right below the application selector you just used.

    Rest assured, Adobe isn't optimized for anything.

    Scrolling is smoother, but the text rendering of my daily newspaper subscription looks like crap with that option turned off.
