Pros
What I love best about Foxit is therefore the unbelievable ease of use and efficiency of the user experience.
My overall experience with Foxit PhantomPDF is excellent and I recommend it to other professionals as well.
It's easy to use it's not very too hard it's a facing type of the size the special characters and stuff like that video is easy format and how you want to use it and how you want to do it.
Cons
Having some trouble editing on the file after using the printer.mobile version for Android feels very limited.converting DOC file to Webpage with images on it is a little bit buggy.
Software updates take some time and require the program to be closed. Can be bothersome during the workday, but those aren't needed often.
Foxit has all the options in a crammed space and makes it difficult to find the right one. It implemented ribbons long time back.

This is my go-to PDF editor

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, It is a decent PDF editor that is supported by a trusted company. Foxit offers an affordable PDF solution with plenty of security and functionality for the average user at a decent price point. Foxit PDF Editor's limitations come to light when it comes to higher-end conversion tasks, but it is capable of handling everyday business viewing, conversion, and editing jobs in a snap, giving it serious competition to the industry-standard Adobe suite.

Pros

I consider Foxit PhantomPDF or Foxit PDF Editor to be one of my favorite applications due to its easy-to-use interface and familiarity with the ribbon menu in Microsoft Office. As a person who has used Microsoft Office for many years, it looks very much like an extension of that platform. As part of a specific agreement with Adobe, every device provided to our organization is equipped with the Adobe...

Cons

A major downside to Foxit PDF Editor is that it cannot convert files into ePubs, although for some users this might not be a big deal. However, it would be handy if we could include this popular format as a default. One of the other cons I noted was the OCR functionality. This particular module is required to enable Optical Character Recognition. However, the majority of image-heavy documents are too complex for it, and the performance of such documents is severely impacted.

A powerful and fast Adobe Acrobat replacement

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall I am happy with Foxit. I know I said the interface is not friendly but i am using it for more than four years so I know now which is what. One specific point I want to mention if you ever lose your ppt/ doc/ xls file don't worry Foxit can convert documents almost accurately. All in all if you ever move to Foxit and get used to its interface it is a lightweight beast (compared to Adobe Acrobat DC) which can tackle your daily challenges without making you sweat.

Pros

Editing, shuffling pages, adding deleting text and merging PDF, these are my regular task in Foxit. And it deliver all those without making my PC go heywire. I think all PDF maker should understand that they should have a lightweight product variant which simply do these. Cause we are not seasoned editor, rather we are business professionals who want to manage simple tasks in a PDF editor. Thanks to Foxit I never have to face any trouble with my office projects as it deliver what I wanted and when I wanted.

Cons

Foxit is very good editor but sometimes I feel like it needs a little graphical overhaul. Some options are repetitive, some are jammed in a single button and sometimes it is difficult o find the right buttons. If they make the interface a little more friendly by dropping rarely used features then it will be a perfect product. One thing they can do is letting us choose which buttons we want to see in our top bar.

Nothing Works!

Reviewed 2 months ago

Not happy at all. I have a deadline to make and I lost 3 days because of this.

Pros

Just like I said... nothing works. It keeps telling to buy the product then tells me I already purchased it when I go to buy it again.

Cons

Nothing. Didn't get use any of it and the cloud editor got as far as only starting a blank pdf.

A less expensive alternative with equal or better functionality

Reviewed 3 years ago

I use Foxit daily to read, edit, and create PDFs that are very interactive and are used for anything from contractual agreements to key media for communication. Overall, after using this software for 3+ years, I have had a very positive experience.

Pros

Foxit offers a comprehensive PDF editing software that is on par with the other major PDF editing software available. The ability to move and delete pages, merge/append files, and sign and protect files is superior to what Adobe offers from my experience. Plus the OCR scan and form field tool make producing very professional and interactive PDFs a breeze. Also, the prices that Foxit offers blow some of the other editing software out of the water and Foxit makes it very easy to find the best option for you, whether it's paying outright one time or paying a subscription for the latest and greatest.

Cons

Foxit is packed with a ton of features including many that I am not even sure of what they do, however commenting and annotations is not one of its strongest capabilities. I end up jumping over to Adobe Reader (free version) to make those sorts of edits. Foxit is also ever-so-slightly bloated and may be a little slow on older computers, particularly as the default PDF reader.

PDF for everyone

Reviewed 2 years ago

excellent pdf editor! the best that I ever used!

Pros

Foxit PDF is very easy to use, even easier in my opinion than the competition. And you can buy a license that will last forever! no need of subscription!

Cons

It takes a few hours to get used to the interface if you are too used to the competition products.
