I have a laptop + 21" monitor arrangement. Adobe Reader constantly crops all PDFs to be the size of the laptop monitor in spite of using Reader on the 21". Other reader's I've tried solve this problem, but do not offer useful cut/paste functionality to get text from the PDF. Is there a PDF reader that does both well?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

which OS are you working on? –  madmaze Dec 1 '10 at 19:21
What version of Adobe Reader? Perhaps it's the larger difference between monitors that you have, but on my system Adobe Reader 8 does just fine on either monitor. –  Michael Kohne Dec 1 '10 at 19:32

I'm using Foxit Reader on my laptop with external monitor, with no problems - it works correctly no matter which one I open documents on.
