recommend a pdf program for mac? for quick lookup?

MacOS X will index your PDF files for you, so you can search for them using Spotlight (either the general spotlight icon in the top right or in a specific directory from a finder window). You can tag your pdfs using the Spotlight comments on the file, these too will be indexed by MacOS X (press Command-I to get the info on the file, then just below the filename, you’ll find the comments section). In regards to the bookmarkability, both Preview and Acrobat (Reader) use a very similar way of doing things, and I don’t like it that much either, but it seems to be all there is. If there had been a fantastic PDF reader that could rival Preview or Acrobat, I bet you would have heard from it already :slight_smile:

Best regards
