DESCRIPTION
       evince

       Evince is a document viewer capable of displaying multiple  and  single
       page document formats like PDF and Postscript.  For more general infor-
       mation    about    Evince    please    visit     our     website     at
       http://www.gnome.org/projects/evince/


OPTIONS
       -?, -h, --help
              Prints the command line options.

       -p, --page-label=PAGE
              Open  the document on the page with the specified page label (or
              page number).

       -i, --page-index=NUMBER
              Open the document on the page  with  the  specified  page  index
              (this is the exact page number, not a page label).

       -n, --named-dest=DEST
              Open the document on the specified named destination.

       -f, --fullscreen
              Run evince in fullscreen mode.

       -s, --presentation
              Run evince in presentation mode.

       -l, --find=string
              You  can  pass  a word or phrase here. If it exists, evince will
              display the document and the first match.

       filename(s)...
              Specifies the file to open when Evince starts. If  this  is  not
              specified,  Evince  will open a blank window. Multiple files can
              be loaded if they are separated by spaces.  Evince also supports
              handling  of  remote files.  For example, you can pass the loca-
              tion on the  web  or  load  a  file  from  a  FTP  server,  like
              "ftp://adobe.com/sample.pdf".


Print preview options
       These  options  are primarily intended for use with the GTK+ print pre-
       view  function.  For  more  information   about   these   options   see
       http://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/GtkSettings.html#GtkSet-
       tings--gtk-print-preview-command

       -w, --preview
              Run evince as a previewer.

       --unlink-temp-file
              If evince is run in preview mode, this will unlink the temporary
              file created by GTK+.

       --print-settings %s %f
              This sends the full path of the PDF file, f, and the settings of
              the print dialog, s, to evince.
