...a slow-loading, bloated & ugly PDF reader, imho.

I managed to change this to Preview by looking inside the NWP package > Resources & changing help.pdf to open with Preview.

True, but it is not quite so bloated if you have Reader 7 and I may be quite wrong here (I NEARLY made quite a bad mistake in 1959, aND I definitely made a HUGE one in 1963) but it seems to me that its "find" works very well, which is important in a Help.

I actually launch this and other PDFed Helps independently for easier access.

Cheers, Geoff

I've found Reader 8 quite nimble as well, and much more streamlined in its function. However, sometimes the text looks like poo...whereas Preview displays text beautifully.
