Except for printing and magnification!
In features, with acroread, it is possible to print first the even numbered 
pages in reverse order then, after placing the printed sheets text side down 
in the input tray, the odd number pages in true order. Duplex printing from a 
simplex printer.
Can anyone find how to do this with Okular?
Other print capabilities from acroread are scaling to paper size and printing 
two copies of a single page side-by-side on one sheet (ideal for fliers). When 
acroread is zoomed in the text scales perfectly, with okular it and the 
picographic parts become very pixellated.

On the plus side, Okular starts much faster and is perfectly adequate for 
reading documents designed to be viewed at normal magnification.


All the best,
