Foxit PDF SDK

I prefer another program for a few reasons. One is that I am more familiar with another program, and two is that I feel that the other application has more capabilities for what I am trying to do. However, that is not saying that Foxit PDF SDK is not a powerful and useful tool. Many other engineers and estimators in our department love using Foxit PDF SDK because of its ease of use. It is much more user-friendly, and there are not as many options available, which can be intimidating to some. For those that want full capabilities and customization, I would say another program might be better suited for them. However, if you want a step up from something like adobe, with more options and that is more user-friendly, I would say Foxit PDF SDK is an excellent choice.

PDF Xchange is easy to learn and use. It's well-suited when documents have lots of visual information and require headings and comment boxes throughout the page. We mainly use PDF Xchange for PDF editing and making up notes. It would be useful to use it to edit text documents, but I find it better suited for marking up documents with lots of visual information.

I rated the Foxit PDF Software Development Kit high for its usability in my work. Daily I need to send many documents to my clients over email. So to keep their originality on every system I convert them into PDF and then I send to my clients and colleagues. It is also very much useful to encrypt my confidential documents.

It's easy to use, making it very efficient for us as we do not have to train additional people on how to use this software. It opens up documents quickly and saves quickly as well. Overall the usability is not an issue for us at all. It is also extremely easy to integrate it with other PDF programs.

I rated this software very high on performance because it is really very quick on my Windows system. It can create any type of PDF files in seconds. It also gives good upload speed when I try to modify my documents for inserting digital signature space. It also gives very good encryption speed to secure my documents.

Performance wise, PDF Xchange Viewer and Editor is flawless. It runs fast, and I haven't experienced any immediately crashing. The reports save quickly, and the document size is never an issue. It saves into a regular PDF, and we're able to open it on any other program or computer. All text boxes, features, and headers show up flawlessly on other programs.

I would give it this rating because I personally have never had to contact support regarding Foxit PDF SDK or anything I am trying to do within the program. As I mentioned before, it is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. I think the program in itself lends support to the user because it is so user-friendly and has an easy to use interface.

Foxit is number 1, not only for the quality of the product but the pricing is 60% less expensive. It is a great product. Thank you, Foxit.

A license and an Adobe Account are needed for Adobe Acrobat DC. PDF Xchange is easy to get it up and running without any of the login information. It saves the hassle of having to be bogged down by Cloud features and other features. PDF Xchange is simple, free of promotional distracts, and easy to use.
