Before I discovered how to change the background color through the command line method I was always looking for alternative software to use just because of the awful yellow background color.
Report a bug Request a feature. I appreciate the desire to keep bloat out of the product, but that yellow is truly vile.
Change it to white, then if people want to change it back to yellow why would anyone want yellow? You’re entitled to your opinion on that subject but I don’t share it. You talk about the software meant to be without “bells and whistles” but I hardly think nifo asking for a different background color besides yellow is a bell or a whistle.
Concerning the hashes, well, I guess that having some couldn’t hurt. Thus, may that voice be heard. I really cant see any legitim reasons for a serious software to perform this optout imho: With opt-out checks, many more users will know about available updates than with opt-in checks, making opt-in checks just plain irresponsible on our part.
Thanks for the tip to turn it off. Select type of offense: It should be white. This should also be addressed like having a dedicated page at the official site containing md5 sums of all sumatra builds which should be easy to locate or something like that so the clients can on their own verify if they have a real sumatra release or a bogus one.
It has all the basics you need and none of the fluff that you don’t. Also keep in mind that the sumatra source code have previously been stolen and used by most likely spyware related hosts to create modified versions which bring us that there can be clients out there not using a real sumatra pdf reader downloaded softward http: That way there will be no questions regarding the shady activity of suddently phoning home.

It opens such a document in a few seconds. Report a bug Request a feature. Krzysztof Kowalczyk on December 29, I’m afraid I have to agree with this request, if the bg colour isn’t set to white by default. At most once a day and not at every start SumatraPDF downloads the file http: Adding MD5 hashes doesn’t add any kowalczyj.
Stop complaining about users who are complaining about the yellow background color. There should not be any option to change the bg color. CommonCents on March 10, Kowalfzyk, people, you don’t need the command-line to use the bgcolor switch, add ” -bg-color 0xffffff” without the quote to the end of the “Target” field in the shortcut property box.

Optin is always a better option than optout, having such “phone home” feature enabled by default will always raise questions and its just bad that the sumatra head developer is questioning people who have second thoughts regarding sumatras recent change in activity network activity that is: A good way to make use of this by sumatraa trojan is to alter the hosts file of the client so once sumatra tries to “autoupdate” by default it will download and install a bogus version instead.
Reviews Current version All versions. Pros It is very fast. The developer seems to think “after you make it your default PDF viewer” then you won’t see the yellow. If it got hacked, the hacker would have changed MD5 hash.
