WinDjView Review

Sven Sorensen
A viewer for djvu files, an alternative to Adobe PDF documents
A review of WinDjView by Sven Sørensen

The DjVu file format is an alternative to Adobe PDF files and provides a small filesize in general. In order to view DjVu files, you're likely going to have to find a viewer which can open them and that's exactly what WinDjVu is.

Unlike modern PDF files, DjVu files are generally smaller in size though lower in image quality. The WinDjVu application can be compared to many PDF viewers: It has a dual-pane interface, scrolls from page-to-page and supports bookmarks and document search. The side panel includes thumbnails of pages contained within the DjVu document. With the help of the menu bar, navigating documents is simple.

Overall, WinDjVu opens and displays DjVu documents quickly and provides a nice alternative to the monopolistic PDF file format.

WinDjView features and highlights:
  • Tabbed document interface. Alternatively it can open each document in its own window.
  • Continuous or single page layout, with an option to group facing pages
  • User-created bookmarks and annotations
  • Text searching and copying
  • Supports dictionaries that translate words under mouse pointer
  • Thumbnails with adjustable size
  • Contents and hyperlinks
  • Advanced printing
  • Fullscreen mode
  • Magnifying glass and marquee zoom
  • Export pages (or a part of a page) to bmp, png, gif, tif and jpg
  • Rotate pages by 90 degrees
  • Zoom to page, page width, 100% or custom zoom
  • Brightness, contrast and gamma adjustment
  • Display modes: Color, Black & White, Foreground, Background
  • Keyboard shortcuts for scrolling and navigation
  • If requested, associates with DjVu files in Explorer
