16.1 PDF Manual

PostThu Nov 28, 2019 5:49 pm

Mac/Preview.... Whenever I try to search for a solution in the DR PDF manual. Preview crashes. If I type "Prores", by the time I enter "Pro" in the search field a thousand results are found and Preview crashes. I know this is not Blackmagic's problem but a 3000+ page PDF seems to be too much for the search function. Just an FYI from an user.

Preview doesn't seem to get along with the manual; I ended up switching to the free Acrobat reader and it works fine.

Also works well on an iPad using the Books app. I tried the Files app first but that lacks a full featured implementation of pdf features.
