Hi listers,

About two weeks ago I announced the following:

I updated the program and fixed a few annoying limitations: you can now 
jump back and forth between full-screen and windowing mode. The 
help-file was updated, but if you've used the program before, you'll 
have to open the help manually (from the help menu, if that wasn't 

You can find this program on

A direct link to the archive:

- Only uses the main screen for display.
- fancy page transitions are not supported. This may be a blessing ;-)
- Multimedia (quicktime movies, OpenGL, ...) not supported. This would 
require someone to roll their own pdf interpreter. I'm not the one for 
that job.
- Read the help-file for all options. The help is displayed at the first 
start-up and can be reached from the help menu. Please familiarize 
yourself with the program before using is in front of a group...

In the package you'll find some other tools as well: a colorselector and 
a ris2bib. Information is included in the dmg and on the page.

Please report typo's, bugs and solutions to me: sneep at nat.vu.nl

Take care,

Maarten Sneep
