    Ok as I went through my app folder I found that I magically had Adobe Reader 7 installed. I don't know how it got there but none the less I need all the space I can get. Do I need it? I thought Preview was perfect for PDF files. Anyways, maybe it does something that Preview doesn't and I am just missing something. Thanks.

    I don't have it because I find it slow, bloated and ugly. I've been able to read all PDFs fine for the past two years. :)

    I don't find Preview to be all that good but Adobe (Acrobat) Reader is a bit heavy duty. The one thing that it can do that Preview can't is that it will display 3D images.

    ...and if the PDF is created in Acrobat Pro 7 and the creator has flicked the right switches, you can edit the PDF within Reader. I think you can also submit PDF forms without running it from within a web-browser...
