What PDF Reader Works Best On MacBook Pro, M1, Big Sur?

I just switched from PC to MacBook Pro (M1, Big Sur), and would like to download a PDF reader for just viewing PDFs (not revising). Previously, on my PC, I used Adobe Acrobat.

I would like to download the product that works best with MacBook Pro (M1, Big Sur).

    You don’t need any third-party app for that. macOS comes with the very useful app Preview. Among other things, it is a PDF viewer.

    If the PDF is long, like a book, then you can also load it into Books, another app you have built-in. It can be used to view ebooks and PDFs. It has features more geared toward reading and note-taking.

    Just tried Preview and it works great.
    Thanks a lot! Susan

    I have adobe acrobat reader as well loaded on my Mac. The one problem I have with preview is that if I want to have a signature that I can insert into a document, I can’t insert a scan of my signature from a file, and my hand is not as steady trying to write on a screen. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Edward: Use Preview, go to add a signature. Create a new one. One option is to use the camera on your Mac. So you can write your signature on a piece of white paper, hold it up to the camera, and use that.

    Preview is the best but annoying sometimes. 1. It never opens in fullscreen automatically which I want most. 2. Big Sur bug.. Windows switching automatically when two or three pdf windows are opened in fullscreen.
