Foxit PDF Editor lets you edit, review, manage, share, protect, and create PDFs quickly and easily. And all the features you need at hand are right there in the Foxit PDF Editor ribbon, at the top of your screen. That’s because Foxit PDF Editor’s Ribbon Mode groups commands by task, eliminating the need for many different icon-based toolbars while ensuring the commands you use most frequently are close at hand.
Regarding PDF creation, organization, and collaboration, here’s the gist of the main features on the ribbon.
Edit PDF text in a paragraph without worrying about layout – text will automatically reflow as you edit. Even directly edit the content in tables. After editing, spell-check the document.
Advanced PDF editing capabilities for PDF documents with a more complex layout. Link, join, or split text blocks to connect or set text to flow throughout the document for more powerful PDF editing. Move and resize text blocks to change to a more compelling layout.
Using the Advanced Object Editing features, you can also edit PDF images, objects, and object shading. Change text to shape. Change page layout properties, add shading to things, convert text to path, merge/split text, and edit .ai files.
Foxit PDF Editor lets you directly organize PDF pages by inserting/deleting pages, moving/extracting pages, splitting documents, merging/interleaving pages, re-arranging pages, resizing pages, and composing page outlines. To organize pages, choose the desired command from the Organize tab or the page thumbnails’ context menu in the Pages panel in the navigation pane. Also, you can drag and drop page thumbnails in the Pages panel to assemble pages in one document or different documents. You can even remove the page thumbnails to the blank areas to extract the selected page(s) as a new PDF file.
You may add watermarks, headers, footers, and other page marks to one or more PDFs from the Organize tab.
With Foxit PDF Editor, you can add annotations or draw shapes to PDF files as you do to a paper document using the commenting, markup, and drawing commands. You can add a stamp and a calculator tape to a PDF as you did on a paper document. When you are done, all comments will be organized automatically and can then be exported for convenient review.
With the Hand command , the Select Annotation command , or the corresponding command selected, right-click a comment, and you can choose to set properties, set statuses, reply to comments, and more. You can export and import comment data and summarize comments. Moreover, suppose you make comments in a PDF file created from a Microsoft Word document. In that case, you can easily export the comments to revise the original Word document by choosing Comment > Export > Export to Word.
