Can hide and print without background laters

Many pdfs these days have background layers which obscure the text.

This can hide and print un-selected layers, which is useful. It can't make an exception if the source pfg groups some mportant images with the background layers.

This, however, does not work with some scrolling tools, and translates attempts to scroll into zooming. I don't have the coordination to use Mac scrollbars, and rely on page up and page down in this app.

Just downloaded and was able to add text and save

This is what I;ve been looking for. A simple to use PDF annotator/editor for filling out form-like PDF docs. The only thing it's missing is the abilty to insert an image (jpg or gif) so I can paste in my scanned signature.

Can't even print

I just wanted to use the so-called advanced printing feature to print specific pages (which the default print on the Mac doesn't offer). But the print dialog says no printer is defined.
