What about WarmReader?

As an aside, it seems to me that devices like SpotLight (but I am still 
with Panther) and Google mail presuppose that you know specifically what 
you are looking for so they will find it for you … once you have 
specified it. But sometimes I just want to look at what is there, if 
only to muse and perhaps get an idea. In the latter case, nothing beats 
having the stuff in some folder.

I am because Intaglio remembers the way Save A Copy As … saved and, if 
you set it that way, will save the file as cropped pdf.

By the way, Dave "Novalis" Turner, GPL Compliance Engineer, wrote to me 
that "PDF is NOT considered to be suitable for revising the document 
straightforwardly" but that "[he thought] the Intaglio files would be 
Transparent copies".
