Any ideas would be much appreciated.  Or is there a previewer that might work
better in windows for PDFs?

while i don't have experience with pdf-previewing on windows (i use linux),
i would certainly recommend looking for an alternative. google gives quite
a few options.

one problem with acrobat reader, IMHO a fatal flaw, is that it doesn't seem
to offer any way of rereading a pdf file. you have to close the file and
reopen it. then, however, you're at page 1 again. very annoying if you're
trying to get some subtle layout issues right on page so-and-so-much. a
decent pdf viewer allows you to reread the file while staying on the same

mmm. sumatra pdf viewer is open source, and has a reread function. that
would be the first thing i'd try...

With GSView (which requires Ghostscript) you don't even need that. It
will display automatically the latest version of the document.
