Since converting our first user, we've never looked back. Our whole organization now utilizes FoxIt, and the experience is far superior to Acrobat. The ability to have tabbed instances, the word recognition, highlighting, etc... just everything is easier. There are so many options, too - so each user gets to do what they want how they want.,Multiple instances. You can choose to have "tabbed" set up like your web browser, OR you can allow multiple windows. It's great that you can choose this. It's fantastic at making common features quick-clicks. For example, you can select multiple PDFs in your explorer window, and right click to get to the FoxIt menu. From there, you can select "Combine" and instantly put several documents in the same place. VERY handy! Text recognition is very solid.

This saves precious minutes on every deal by making simple tasks easy and quick. When comparing to Acrobat, I think we actually saved money on just the licenses, not to mention the feature benefit.

You can do it from within a Word document with the Foxit plugin, or straight from Windows Explorer by right-clicking. You can even select multiple word documents and combine them with a click of a button! Working with multiple PDFs is easy with Foxit. Being able to choose between having different PDFs in tabs or windows, and the ability to drag and drop to rearrange pages is a nice touch. You can even drag and drop pages from one document to the other. The OCR functionality is great. Being able to scan a document and then select text makes my life a lot easier.,Using the form fields can be challenging. While some aspects are intuitive, other aspects - like setting a tab order - can be confusing. The user interface is older looking. Would definitely like to have things easier to use. Clients of ours complain that it isn't "pretty" like Adobe. I've never liked having to change the pointer option (hand vs text selector) to do different things. Always trips me up.,9,Allowing our team members to easily edit PDFs and it is low cost enough to where we can have multiple staff members with licenses where we couldn't afford that before. This boosts productivity. We have been able to recommend this to our clients (we are an IT company) as a cost saving measure on top of the increased productivity. Clients love us for it!

  • Foxit is the best PDFviewer out there, However, an improvement on how to use new features that may be availed later would be very helpful.
FoxitPhantom PDF is suitable for viewing of ebooks, reports, scanned documents and downloaded PDFs either in the office or for personal use. Reports generated from web-based applications are also very well viewed in FoxitPhantom compared to other readers I had used.

Anyone who edits more than one PDF at a time, who does form field editing, or who is regularly viewing multiple PDFs. If you use Acrobat at all, this is a great replacement. Any organizations where users have varying preferences would do well, since each user can change almost every aspect of the program to their liking.

A large number of users that are switching from Adobe is a great scenario because it is much more cost effective.

A scenario where it is less appropriate would be where someone uses a CRM or ERP that requires Adobe integration (this happens).

We also have implemented an scan-and-shred system where every (well almost every) new document that comes in is immediately scanned and then shredded.

  • Converting to PDF and printing to PDF
  • Their PDF editing is not very intuitive and building from a blank PDF is frustrating
  • When it does crash, the crash reporting tool has never worked right.
  • Edit text sometimes has problems grabbing the correct text on a busy page
For smaller companies looking to go paperless it is perfect. It's affordable, easy to use, and has a really good workflow for converting everything. I think it also works well for companies who are looking to convert just their mail to email attachments. This was actually where we started and it worked flawlessly. I think bigger companies would need something more integrated or will already have the same features built into a larger system.

FoxitPhantom PDF Review: "Great Adobe Alternative"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source
We use FoxitPhantom for those users that have a need to create and edit PDF documents. It gives us the ability to modify PDFs quickly and easily.
  • The UI is very similar to the Microsoft Office "Ribbon", so our users have learned it quite quickly.
  • Very good OCR and edit capabilities.
  • While not exactly small in size, it's far smaller and lighter on system resources than Adobe.
  • Subpar support experience. If you have an issue that requires their intervention it requires a lot of handholding and cajoling on my end to get a resolution.
  • In multi-user environments (i.e. Citrix), it constantly tries to update itself leading to multiple update files in my users' profiles. Although it has GPO extensions that should prevent this, they are not particularly effective.
  • They've begun cloud based document software in their apps.
It is a cost-effective, "lighter weight" alternative to Adobe Acrobat. It works great when installed directly on a user's workstation but I'd be hesitant to install it in a terminal server environment.

"Descriptive review of FoxitPhantom PDF"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

FoxitPhantom PDF was used at my previous employer because it was cheaper, easier to use and was much lighter on our systems then Adobe.
  • Cheaper than Adobe which saves money.
  • Much easier for our end users.
  • Much lighter on system resources which increases performance.
  • OCR character reading
  • Handling of complex documents
This PDF software should be very good for everyday users and most business people. You can also convert multiple documents and the toolbars are pretty easy to use. It also handles unfamiliar fonts well, which I like.

I'd like to see the ability to save a pdf to ePub in future versions.
