There is another limit to PDFLRF. Because the text is now turned into an image the view will be the same for S/M/L. And while PDFLRF does a good job smoothing fonts there are still times when fonts pixelization are still displayed.

With soPDF the text and layout is preserved. The only thing that is modified(removed really) is the borders, PDFLRF also removes the margin. So now instead of trying to view a PDF (typically 8.5x11") down to a 6" screen you are trying to view (7.5x10") (margin are usually 1") which makes it much easier to view the text. Because the PDF is still text base text reflow still works and the font size can be increase if need be.

With soPDF and PDFCroper I find I rarely if ever use PDFLRF.

Hope this helps,
