The new release WPViewPDF 2.28 optimizes page selection. There are new commands to check if a page was selected and also to save/restore a selection. Most important the SHIFT key can be used to select a range of pages.

This new release implements a new algorithm to render rotated pages. This avoids problems with such PDFs which were seen in former builds.
