    Better then build in os x viewer, if only there was a night reading theme Needs one more thing that build in viewer is missing! The ability to change the background color of the paper to any RGB color one want's

    I on ask for one more FEATURE: Please add the option to HIGHLIGHT the text with several COLORS! Instead of having that one sign only, every user should be able to add different colors of markers - like in realy life ;) This would make my life so much easier and totally unnecessary to print documents anymore! Thanks in advance! Your making a great job!

    I now am using Emacs with Skim viewer for TeX editing. As I said before, there is an annoying bug or lack of function in Skim viewer; "forward search" with emacs is not good. I always have a fixed window size for Skim viewer, and use "Zoom in" option in Skim, because there is much vaccum space in usual PDF file after texifying, so that, I need an appropriate font size and often try to fit manuscript to my fixed window size. But, whenever I use "forward search" with emacs, this keeping position in Skim is broken - I think that this is a lack of function in Skim. In contrast, for Xdvik, there is indeed such a function; the hotkey is "k" in Xdvik which stands for "Keep position". I strongly hope to add this function to Skim, too.

    Skim is an excellent application, but it has a bug: every time I open a pdf, I get an empty window. Once I click in the window, or change the zoom (by clicking "+") the pdf itself appears.
