Tried the RNO PDF today, works pretty nice thx for this.
Only downside is when i set it to the default PDF viewer trough def icons in OS3.9 and then clicking a PDF file the program starts but doesn't open the PDF file.

Hmm.. yea.. I don't remember how OS3.9 def icons do work, I never used them because I already was Magellan2 user at the time when 3.9 came out. But maybe it would require that the program would take a file as an argument as it is, but as Hollywood is a multiplatform program it wants "-" in front of all arguments to be consistent everywhere, and maybe it fails because of that. RNOPDF would need the file given as an argument like this: -file=yourfile.pdf, but I don't know now can you configure deficons that way? But if you're using Magellan2, MorphOS, or other more modern solution, then you can easily configure filetype settings to work with this.

Actually I found a way to get the file argument in Hollywood, there was a separate function for that outside the normal option arguments. Argh, should have noticed that earlier... well, I'll make an update in next days and then it will work as a default tool on project icons etc. Thanks for asking
