To help increase your productivity, Microsoft Office add-ins offer custom commands and new features in Office programs. Not to be outdone, we’ve got one for, of course.
Foxit, the Microsoft Office add-in, gives you additional control over the PDF files you produce. While the settings are different for each of the Microsoft Office applications, in general, the add-in lets you add security, insert bookmarks and hyperlinks, customize pages sizes, and compress images, to name a few of its capabilities.
If you don’t already have it, there’s an easy way to install the Foxit PDF Creator add-in to Microsoft Office applications such as Excel.
Use the following instruction to install the Foxit PDF Creator add-in.
- Look for the Foxit PDF Creator Add-in.
- Go to Insert > Add-ins > Get Add-ins.
- You may also want to click the Allow Pop Up alert when creating PDF: Check this option to show a message when converting PDFs in Microsoft Office by the Foxit PDF add-in.
- Click Add.
To modify the Office add-in settings:
- In the Office program, on the Foxit PDF Creator tab, in the Program Settings and General Settings groups, click and select the settings to use.
- Optionally, in the General Settings group, click Advanced and choose from additional settings.
To view any of the other add-ins you have installed:
- Click File > Options > Add-Ins.
