I like all the editing tools that are available in Iskysoft PDF editor, but its view sizing seems to be clunky. I have to manually resize and/or reposition the document whenever I switch between single page/continuous page/facing page views or fit actual/width/full page sizes. It is also slow at opening files.
I really like the Windows style menu layouts (ribbon). It is quick and easy to find the editing tools that I need.
