Vorteile:

I needed a free solution to edit a PDF and did not want to pay full price for adobe. This product did everything that I needed and was able to fully edit a PDF and save it again in the same format.

Nachteile:

I don't like that there's an update that refuses to install and my IT team can't figure how to fix it.

Tolle Alternative zu Adobe und Co

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

Super Funktionsumfang und dabei kostenlos.

Nachteile:

Ich habe nichts zu kritisieren. Natürlich hat Foxit nicht alle neue Funktionen die zb Adobe hat, aber die waren für mich/uns auch nie notwendig. Die Grundfunktionen klappen und genau darauf kommt es an

Viele Funktionen, teils kostenpflichtig

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Seiten umsortieren war für mich nicht möglich oder es ist in anderer Software einfacher gelöst. Ich habe den Eindruck, dass es viele Möglichkeiten gibt, habe jedoch bei der Funktion PDF komprimieren lediglich eine leere Seite erhalten. Keine Fehlermeldung, keine Reaktion. Spätestens da schaute ich mich nach einer anderen Software um.

Vorteile:

Es gibt viele Funktionen, die es tzu erforschen gilt.

Nachteile:

Funktionen, die zu „kostenlosen“ Account führen, aber im Endeffekt ein kostenpflichtiges Abo brauchen, so meine Rechercheergebnisse. Ich habe diesen kostenlosen Account nicht ausprobiert, weil ich über die Website des Herstellers das nachgelagert kostenpflichtige Abo fand. Vielleicht liege ich auch falsch, aber solange ich mir über ggf entstehende Kosten nicht sicher bin, lasse ich es, um nicht ein brachliegendes Konto mit meinen Daten zu haben. Hier fände ich es besser, z.B. im Menüpunkt eSign/Signatur Anfordern gleich einen Hinweis über entstehende Kosten oder die wirklich kostenfreie Möglichkeiten zu finden. Von daher lasse ich es ein Konto anzumelden und weiterzutesten.

Absolutely fantastic PDF reader and manager!

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I've been using Foxit PDF Reader for a while now and it has become my favorite tool for day-to-day PDF-related tasks. I'm an extensive reader and note-taker, and it has all the necessary features included that make everything more manageable.

Vorteile:

I use Foxit as my go-to PDF reader for numerous reasons - 1. Cross Platform - It works like a charm on my machine. I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and it's a little old operating system, but it works without any issues. I've tried a lot of PDF readers, but none of them were as good as Foxit.2. Color Schemes - It comes with various inbuilt color schemes, and all of them fit perfectly with the PDFs which really improves the whole reading experience.3. Page Style - Takes one click to change page style from "single page" to "continuous" to "facing" and more.4. Annotation tools - Foxit is packed with a good number of annotation tools that can be used to take diverse varieties of notes. It comes in handy when I'm deep diving into topics that require extensive note-taking.5. Last, but not least, it's remarkably fast. It takes no time to load and is ready to work. So far, I haven't encountered any lags in the software.

Nachteile:

A couple of things -1. Once you annotate a specific part in the PDF, you cannot copy-paste it directly. Clicking on it opens a pop-up for taking notes, which means you can't select the text without removing the annotation.2. Foxit has a "Start" panel that displays the recent documents, and if you accidentally close it, there's no way to open it again unless you restart the application.

A good PDF Reader

4,0 letzte Woche Neu

Kommentare: I start using Foxit Reader some years ago, when it was a quite small program; now it has more features and obviously it is not so small (but usually we have better PCs and a lot of space); I use mainly as PDF reader and it works really well, fast to open without slowing down. It is easy to find support and documentation on internet. If you don't want to use you browser as PDF reader and/or you need more features I recommend this product.

Vorteile:

Foxit PDF Reader has free features that other programs don't offer, so if you are an individual and don't need the full licensed product it is a valid choice (if you run a company, choose the license plan instead). Free plugins are available (OCR, Docusign...) Plus it runs much better than another widely used product, with no errors and random hanging. You can install Foxit on Windows, Mac and Android; it supports the digital signing.

Nachteile:

The tiny "ads" about the fact you are using a free version. First it was a very small program, now the installer is quite large

The easiest way to complete my documentation works.

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: For the last several years, I am using several different pdf readers. I find Foxit readers is the easiest way to operate than others. It takes less time than other relevant software. I don't have to wait to open a file. What I need to finish my work, I can do that with Foxit reader. Break a PDF file, edit it, and then merge it with my other files is more comfortable with this software because it's quick and easy for me to understand what I need to do. I forget to mention that it's a lite and low ram consuming software than other similar software, which means I can use it on my low-end pc also.

Vorteile:

The interface is too easy for me to operate. The main reason for choosing this software is its take no time (so less, I mean) to open any pdf files than others; I don't have to wait for this. I am using text editor tools with ease. It also has a great feature of exporting pdf; when I need a specific page as pdf from a big pdf file, I can easily do that quickly and edit it with ease.

Nachteile:

While I was using windows 7, after some heavy use, sometimes it crashes. It's a bit annoying for me sometimes I get some ads when I am working.

Foxit PDF Reader Review

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Vorteile:

We implemented Foxit PDF Reader Review to use as our default app to open PDF files. We were having issues with our other provider. I have found Foxit PDF Reader Review to be efficient. The files open quickly. The lay out is good. I have utilised the e-signature and text edit settings so far and these do seem to work really well. I have not encountered any issues so far with Foxit PDF Reader Review and I plan to continue to use this.

Nachteile:

The only issue I have had is some files will not open - but rare.

Foxit is a great alternative to the "Larger" PDF companies

Kommentare: Great piece of software especially if in a bind and just need a good PDF program.

Vorteile:

I love that it is easy to find, download, and install. It's a great piece of software that enables our users to manage PDFs without pay-for subscriptions.

Nachteile:

As Foxit has freeware versions it can lead to shadow IT. Businesses need to decide if they will allow this software or not as it is fairly easy to access and use.

Kommentare: A pleasant experience 3+ years in! I was using Nuance Power and it was super confusing.

Vorteile:

I currently have Foxit Phantom PDF, however, I had originally started using the free version years and years ago! It has been such a life changer! I work within this PDF editor daily, I honestly don't know what I'd do without it. I remember a time when I didn't have this in my life and I just don't know how I was able to go about my daily activities without it. Anyone who works in the Legal Industry or just office industry in general can benefit from this software! The price for this is paid back within no time. It has helped to maintain my efficiency!

Nachteile:

Nothing that I can think of! I really enjoy using Foxit and it has been everything I could have asked for and more.

Decent PDF Reader

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It is very useful and simple to read PDF files and has very good tools to analyze the text and leave comments.

Vorteile:

At first I didn't like to have Foxit Reader installed in my computer. I was used to Acrobat Reader. However, Foxit Reader have surprised me. The feature that I like the most (and maybe because I use the most) is the comments tools. I like how it is very easy and simply to leave a comment or highlight a text - there is even more than one highlighter color that I can choose and the software is very friendly. Regarding comments, I can use different forms to leave a comment which is very useful if you have to leave different types of comments.

Nachteile:

Recently I have updated my Foxit Reader and somehow I cannot access the recent files from the start window. Sometimes I open several files and they also do not show up on the recent files list, which is annoying that I have to go all the way to the folder and open it from there. If it is a bug from the recent version it could be fixed.

small file size, simple to install, and even easier to use

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Foxit has drastically improved our document creation, handling and research collation processes. By introducing direct features that simplify otherwise lengthy processes of conversion and reconversion between different file formats, it has in many ways improved our efficiency. Finally, the ability to quickly redact PIIs from project reports before sharing with unauthorized personnel helps us easily maintain data protection protocols.

Vorteile:

My most favorite feature of Foxit Reader is the Page Panel, that allows me to reorganize the flow of any pdf document by simply dragging and dropping them in the order that suits me. Before discovering this feature, I used to have to first convert them into word format, and then copy paste the contents unto a fresh document in the order I desired. Imagine the amount of time being saved me by introducing this powerful feature.

Nachteile:

Even though there are ways around it, I wish the Foxit Sign function wasn't featured as a separate service. This is my only complain about Foxit Reader.

One of the Best Softwares for PDF reading and Editing

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Till date, the experience has been good. The software is fast, easy to use, occupies lower storage space, and consumes lower RAM, which is a blessing in disguise.

Vorteile:

Size, As compared to Competition, Foxit is comparatively Lighter in size. Other softwares were larger in size, which lead to occupying larger RAM space and disk space, making it difficult to run on systems with lower configuration. Me as an IT head, i can't advise the management to go for a mass hardware upgrade abruptly, otherwise i would be out of Job. Hence, using Foxit has been easier as it runs easily and smoothly on systems with lower configuration as well.

Nachteile:

Sometimes, when using forms where we have to apply digital signatures, the software has glitches. Otherwise, i am very happy with the software

Great general PDF reader, ability to markup, comment, "Type" and "Sign" PDF forms is amazing

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: My first introduction to Foxit came more 13 years ago (or so, around 2007) when looking for a solution that did not hog so much of my cheap "student" laptop's meager resources. As the software feature set has grown, I find that I use Foxit nearly every day. Unfortunately, I have poor penmanship. With the increased use of smart phones, portable computers and tables, writing has become even more less frequent in my life. To make my "filled out" documents, like medical history forms or applications easier to deal with I use Foxit Reader's commenting features. I love the signature option for signing secure PDFs that won't let you e-sign. Keep up the great work Foxit!

Vorteile:

Great feature set, ability to fill PDF forms and "Type" onto non-pdf forms. The ability to markup forms with text boxes, arrows and shapes. Ability to apply signatures to documents.

Nachteile:

There is a bug with the save feature which causes the mouse to shoot to the bottom of the screen. The "default" saving location is "Foxit Cloud".

Foxit reader for everything

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: If you have a low-end PC and struggling with other high-end PDF readers, just take a look at Foxit reader. It is lightweight and completely free to full fill all your basic PDF requirements.

Vorteile:

I'm a kind of PRO pdf user and I have experience with almost every famous PDF reader, I can say Foxit is the best PDF reader. comparatively, it is small software with better ram management. It takes less time for the initial run & we can do all kinds of commenting works such as drawing, signing, and highlighting within the free version. It suites me very well for both my personal and professional works and its mobile version also looks impressive.

Nachteile:

I didn't see any downside of this cool app until now. The measuring function is missing on Foxit and if it introduces in the future, it will be a great update. And mobile version needs some UI improvement for long-term survival.

Flexible and efficient PDF Reader

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: My overall experience with Foxit is just fine. I remember Foxit as a good old chap that I use since my time in college. Back then it helped me with lecture studies, now it helps me in business life with my academic paper publication releases and documents.

Vorteile:

I like the flexibility Foxit provides when I study a PDF document. Ability to take notes, highlight, draw, etc. Not to mention it's free to use which makes it perfect for students. I used Foxit back then to study my lecture notes, now I use it to read brand-new academic paper publications and take notes. It marks where you left at the document and when you re-open the document, it automatically starts from there. Its simplicity is its beauty. Not to mention that it is a very efficient software which does not leech the system.

Nachteile:

There's nothing I disliked during my readings, however if I have to name one, it could have a nicer UI perhaps with a cozier theme to simulate the cozy reading experience.

A good choice of pdf reader

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: It does the job. I think it uses fewer resources than Adobe, it certainly seems to load faster, but then the decision point was some years ago and that may by now be different. As I said I literally use it as a pdf reader so if you were going to use something to design or edit pdfs then some other research would be required. But for a reader its' great

Vorteile:

I really only use this software for reading pdfs (I edit oin other software) and it soldiers away opening anything I throw at it without complaint!

Nachteile:

Splash screens sometimes get in the way of what you're doing
