Editors' Review

Foxit Reader creates, converts, and edits PDFs (including secure documents), accepts plug-ins, and makes it easy to collaborate and share documents by email and social media.

Pros

Layout: Foxit Reader's layout takes design cues from Office, like the ribbon-style main toolbar, though the software has its own touches, like the Quick Access Toolbar. Nearly everything can be customized.

Protect: Foxit Reader's security features include DocuSign options on the Protect tab.

Read out loud: The View tab's Read feature can read documents out loud through headphones or your PC's loudspeakers. Sliders adjust speech rate and volume.

Support: Hundreds of millions of users have helped Foxit's developers work the bugs out of Reader and add the features and extras that work best. Help is available in abundance, including manuals, error reports, and Command Line Help.

Cons

Complicated: Despite a well-designed interface, Foxit Reader can seem busy and complicated. You can customize things to suit your needs, but that's another complication. Since cost isn't an issue, more basic one-function PDF utilities sometimes offer faster solutions.

Bottom Line

Foxit Reader isn't the only excellent freeware PDF solution out there, but it's certainly one of the top few. Business-oriented upgrades are available for a price, but the freeware has more than enough for most users.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 9.0.0.29935
  • Use single key accelerators to access commands or perform some actions, improving the application accessibility to make the reading and working with PDF files more accessible.
  • Reflow a PDF file to temporarily present it as a single column that is the width of the document pane, which makes the document easier to read when magnified on a standard monitor, without scrolling horizontally to read the text.
  • Find a command by typing the command name and bring features to your fingertips with ease.
  • Provide a Help Center to help users search and find online help conveniently.

Advanced protection – available in Foxit Reader (MSI package) only:

  • Protect your enterprise data using Windows Information Protection (WIP) to guard against the potential data leakage without otherwise interfering with the employee experience.
  • Protect PDF files using the Microsoft PDF V2 IRM Specification.
  • Enhance Foxit RMS protection to make the RMS-protected files compliant with PDF 2.0.

Support bleed mark and overprint simulation:

  • Place a bleed mark at each corner of the bleed box to indicate the PDF bleed box boundaries during printing.
  • Simulate overprinting effects for composite output.

Digital signatures:

  • Support to export digital IDs to .fdf files.
  • Allow users to specify the font and font size and include the Foxit application version number while designing the appearance of a digital signature.
