Add auto-refresh (option) for externally modified PDF files
When you work on presentation or anything else in another application (e.g. Keynote or PowerPoint) you can browse the final result of slides in PDF format by using Acrobat Reader. In this cases every time you export updated version of the PDF file you have to close the older version, and reopen the file. It's really annoying and takes a lot of time.
I personally experience it while working with LaTeX that doesn't have a viewer. So, you quite often "export" to PDF and view via Acrobat. I have already seen other people that look for this feature and gave exactly the same scenario.
I can understand that having it enabled by default could be risky. For example when user edit some forms and this could destroy his work. This is why I think it should be an option - disabled by default. Or simple detect forms and disable auto-refresh only for these files.
Thank you :-)
I support this. Acrobat is pretty much unusable for working with LaTeX for the reasons given so although it has features I like I am switching back to Prefiew and xpdf until thre is this features. Apple Preview automatically detetcs that the PDF has changed and reloads, and I've used another viewer with a refresh button. Either would be fine.
