Worked great for me!

I have to print some reports from a Windows Terminal Server and my only option is to print to XPS to my dropbox folder. I need to markup these reports in PDF. This app solved my problem perfectly. I have used it a few times so far and it has worked flawlessly for me. The conversions are quick and seem to be very good conversions.

Works pretty well, could use some tweaks.

The resulting text is sharp and selectable, but the included image was enlarged, pixelated and incorrectly sized/positioned, resulting in the text overwriting much of it in the PDF output. The previews in the sidebar on the left are also odd, as they appear to shrink the page's content to the upper 1/4 of each page document and include likewise shrunk other pages in the other 3 quarters redundantly, yet the content does display correctly on the larger view pane to the right and in the PDF output. Adding export options to the Customize Toolbar feature would also be appreciated instead of having to dig into the file menu every time with no keyboard shortcut assigned to speed up the process.

It worked

All I needed was the ability to open an oxps file and this fit the bill. Yeah, I paid $4.99 for the privilege but it worked. I doubt that I will need it in the future but like most specialty tools, if you don’t have it there isn’t a lot of substitutes that will work.
