Do you know any PDF reader which remembers the last page for each document?

The usage scenario should be something like this:

  • A new PDF file is loaded into the reader
  • The PDF file is opened on page 0
  • Reading, reading, reading ... Reading finished at page 37.
  • Reader closed ...
  • The same PDF file is loaded into the reader
  • The PDF File is opened on page 37

I don't need multiple bookmarks. Just one is enough. Any tips?

  • The page gets saved for a little while only, if i open the book some months later, it forgets the page. Any tips on that?

  • Maybe by increasing the maximum number of documents in the history list?

  • Unfortunately in depends. If evince is compiled without gvfs-support it does not remembers the history or last opened page. Dec 30 '17 at 10:04

PDF-Xchange Viewer does just that (and not only for the last opened document, but all documents). In addition you can create your own bookmarks.

PDF-Xchange Viewer is freeware and a portable version is available.

Sumatra does that to all PDF files by default.

Sumatra PDF is a free PDF, XPS, DjVu, CHM, Comic Book (CBZ and CBR) reader for Windows.

Since no OS is mentioned: Preview on Mac OS X does it by default.
