    Hi all,

    I have Adobe Reader for Mac v9.5.5 installed on my iMac (OS X Yosemite) and whenever I use it, for any sized document, it will lag as I scroll down or up in the document.

    The rest of my computer is fine and works like a dream.

    I want Adobe Reader to scroll in a fluid motion, like in Safari or in Preview.

    I use a Magic Trackpad with multi-touch gestures enabled, and to scroll I use two fingers using the inertia mode.

    Please help, thank you!

    Uninstall reader and just use Preview. Never had a problem with preview, but Acrobat Reader is just pants.

    If Preview will do what you want with PDFs, use that.
    I haven't tested performance on the newer versions of Reader but version 9 is now 3 behind. I'd update.

    Actually, there's now Adobe Reader DC which is newer. (Just released last week or so).
