This is my go-to PDF editor

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 Acrobat Reader. Nevertheless, after comparing it with Foxit, I have observed that Foxit offers a greater number of functionality and features. It became my standard tool for everything and proved to be a useful complement to more difficult tasks. The software allows me to split documents, add pages, merge files, scan paper documents into PDFs, and take advantage of its cloud features. Foxit also integrates with external multimedia files, which I find extremely useful. A major advantage of this PDF management software is the ability to embed large multimedia files, such as video, into your documents. This feature is not available in many other programs. Security and sharing features provided by this software are certainly reassuring and I am grateful for them.

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

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.

Reasons for Switching to Foxit PhantomPDF

Because I had a weak PC then and Adobe Acrobat was glitching. At first I tried out Foxit reader after that my love grew stronger

Same features, less money than the big name competitor

Rolling out Foxit Phantom PDF was pretty simple, I was able to import our users from Adobe to Foxit and it sent out an invite to all our users right away. Install was quick and painless. Most of our users have adapted to it real well, you will always have those few stubborn users that dont like change, but its not the programs fault. So far, great product for a fraction of the cost of the main competitor.

Pros

Easy deployment Does everything Adobe PDF products do at a lower price Interface is pretty user friendly Sales techs for the product are amazing

Cons

Adobe users take some time to get used to the layout The Tech Support has been a little questionable at times with some issues we have had, by that I just mean they have taken way too long to respond to us, but when they do resolutions are made quickly.

A less expensive alternative with equal or better functionality

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.

Reasons for Choosing Foxit PhantomPDF

Overall easier to use, does not require downloading multiple applications just to use one, easy to find and choose the buy-outright option instead of pushing the scam of a subscription.

Review for Foxit PhantomPDF

What i has experience with this software is quite eventful, as i can have the PDF reader and editor on the same software, and not needing other additional software to editing my PDF document.

Pros

It is one stop center that all i need for editing and changing my PDF document. It has a good text editing tools that will not messing the original layout, unlike other PDF editing software. Other than that, it also can convert the PDF files into other format, like .jpeg and or .html

Cons

Picture editing and placement is not the best with this software, as it has its own grid, and the picture can only be placed on the grid. It is making the picture placement not too flexible and will messing with the document layout that i intended to do.

Absolutely love this program!

Pros

I use this software everyday to scan all of our paperwork in (invoices, Liens, statements, receipts, etc.) and save them as pdf files in our system for future viewing. We started using this to eliminate paper files. You can scan in multiple pages at a time and then organize and separate them into individual files and this is so simply done. I also use it frequently to covert files like Word files into pdf files and this can be done with one click of a button. You can easily add comment to any file and the DocuSign is one of my favorite features. You can sign any document electronically and email it back to someone. I use this every week when I send out Liens that need to signed. Absolutely love this program!

Cons

I can't really find anything bad to say about Foxit Phantom PDF, I love it and it is the most simplest program to use. If I had too, I guess I would just say that I wish you didn't have to pay to use it!

Fox it PDF

Pros

The software is a definite value, features of software compare to Adobe and the cost is less than half per license.

Cons

As with any PDF editing software there are just some documents that can not be edited. I would like to see a way to just highlight a specific areas on photos that were changed to a PDF from a photo.

Foxit PhantomPDF Review

All my files I use this program to modify them. Great program with great features.

Pros

It contains many tools to modify the file, such as modifying the text, adding an image, deleting a page, adding a signature and many more features, I advise you to use it And the most beautiful, you can save the file in a variety of formats (power point, .txt, excel or html).

Cons

From my experience, I think there are no CONS except for the types of fonts.
