I'm trying to switch from acroread to evince, bit it has a few serious
usability problems for me:
1) You can't copy/paste text from evince _at_all_. At least it works
right most of the time with acroread. I really like being able
paste example commands or bits of code or a sentance or three from
PDF docs into a shell or editor window. Pasting tables is a bit
more work, but it can at least be done with acroread.
2) You can't print the current view. I find that invaluable for
printing portions of documents (e.g. I want just a section of a C
size schematic printed on letter sized paper, or just one table
table from a manual sized to fill a 8.5x11 page). If it did have
'print view' then lack of a marquee zoom would become another
3) There's no way to collapse-all in the TOC panel. When I open a
1200 page document with 30 sections and several hundred sections
and subsections, I don't want to see all of them all of the time.
Closing them one at a time by hand is pretty tedious.
I find that about 20-30% of the time I start up evince, I end up
closing it and re-opening the document in acroread.
