Editors' Review


Foxit PhantomPDF Standard provides you with a full suite of PDF viewing, sharing, and editing features, designed to make working with PDFs as convenient as possible. With plenty of options and an intuitive interface, this program offers just about everything you want in a PDF editing program.


Lots of help: There are plenty of Video Tutorials that show you how to access various features. You can also make use of an Online Tutorial and User Manual to get a sense of how this program works. And there is Command Line Help available within the app as well.

Convenient interface: This app features a nice tabbed interface that provides access to the various tools you'll need as you create or edit PDFs. Even without tutorials, you can find most items quickly, and they're easy to access again whenever you need them.

Creation and conversion: In addition to editing PDFs, you can also create them through this program. That means you can make a completely new one from scratch, from multiple files, from a scanned document, or from the clipboard. And you can convert documents saved in other formats into PDF as well.


Trial registration: In order to use all of the features of the paid program during the trial period, you have to register with your full name, email address, company name, and phone number. Otherwise, you'll only be able to access the program's free features, which makes it hard to determine if you'd like to spend the money to purchase the full version.

Bottom Line

Foxit PhantomPDF is a capable and convenient PDF creation and editing program that includes just about all of the features you'd hope to find. As long as you don't mind registering, you can try it out for free for 30 days, and the full purchase price is $106.80. It's a good choice for both experienced users and newcomers to this type of program.

"Excellent Alternative to Adobe Standard"

 |  Version: Foxit PhantomPDF Standard


Excellent value for the price - which is why I considered it in the first place. I used the trial extensively, daily, to make sure I could substitute it for Acrobat Standard. While my needs are mostly limited to document assembly (adding, deleting pages), dynamic stamps, and signatures; I must say that it exceeded my expectations. Must faster overall than Adobe Standard 9, especially at navigating large documents such as architectural drawings, and so forth. Has the "flatten" document command right there in the ribbon! You have to hunt or even download 3rd party tools to do that in Acrobat. Great UI with the latest version.


If you have existing dynamic stamps in Acrobat, be prepared to re-create them in Foxit. Not quite as straight-forward at working with java script in dynamic stamps as Adobe, so if you are not comfortable in that arena don't expect a cake-walk - but I got them working beautifully and perfectly. No shortcut for the last used stamp if you use the same one over and over - but their support folks at least said they would take that in consideration (it is "k" in Acrobat). I wish it had all the document view and navigate commands all together in the ribbon instead of a combination at the "home" and "view" tabs on the ribbon or on the navigation area under the documents (my biggest gripe actually).


Not perfect, but a great value and does everything I've ever needed Adobe Standard to do, and then some. Excellent speed at viewing docs and creating them with the included PDF printer.

"Pretty good, nice to use package; not yet 100% though"

All functionality you may want
Clear GUI
Works smoothly
Good support


Sign & Certify process is not quite as it should be. Wrong certificates are shown and you may unintentionally ruin your document if you abort the signing process. Foxit knows it and hopefully will fix it.


Good software for most users. Beware if you want it for using qualified signatures.
