Foxit PDF Editor

Overall Satisfaction with Foxit PDF Editor (FoxitPhantom)

We use Foxit for all of the scanned and secured documents for our loan applications, with supporting documents. In our attempt to go "paperless" we use thousands of scanned copies that have to be securely sent to closings, banks, and other financial institutions, and it does a very good job of doing so.
  • Reproducing legibly scanned files & images in a workable size.
  • Fast compression when converting to smaller sizes.
  • Easy use of different types of digital signatures.
  • Their support is a little hard to follow online.
  • Like all pdf editors, steep learning curve for various tools and functions.
  • Compression vs. readability takes some time to tweak.
  • Digital signing.
  • Reproduction of originals.
  • Cheaper cost to Adobe.
  • It's a less expensive alternative and for smaller businesses, that's a must, especially when needing multiple copies for employees at times.
  • Their call support will work with you on discounts at times to further minimize the cost.
  • They have at times helped me with transferring licenses of older versions (but still useful) by providing executables when they can't be found locally.
Better value with the same functionality, often exceeding in many ways.

Would you buy Foxit PDF Editor (FoxitPhantom) again?


I think Foxit is a great alternative to Adobe's offering, at a cheaper price when needing a fully functioning editor. I have not seen anything lacking in comparison to the two. Again, their online support could use some work, especially over different versions, but that is not too much of an issue.
