Free tool to view millimeter coordinate under mouse of a PDF
I am looking for a free tool (Windows/Linux) which can display a PDF and show the coordinates under the mouse pointer in millimeter (or inch/etc just what the settings are) based on the PDF coordinate system. It would be nice if it comes with a zoom function for extra precision.
Background is that I want to check (pdflatex) placement of objects in the PDF output.
I found this StackOverflow thread however the answers are not free tools (Illustrator) or pixel based solutions (GIMP), etc.
Adobe Acrobat does this.....
And Acrobat also has a Loupe Tool....
And you can use both at the same time....
Screen shots from Acrobat Pro X, but I can't imagine they've removed these features from newer versions (I just don't like the newer versions).
Acrobat isn't free.. and I don't know if Reader has these features. But you did tag the question with Acrobat, not Reader.
