3. Add necessary notes to the PDF.
4. Extract/Add pages.

We were using Adobe before but they changed the Licensing mode to a subscription basis. This involves more money and more budget to preview for this.
More, Adobe updates are breaking the installations and the product should be repaired to get it back on track.
Foxit is more complicated and not suitable for day to day users.
Kofax support lacks on providing solutions.
Tech support is not very responsible and you can wait on a reply for days.
In the same order the only solution provided was to format the machine.
We agreed that Kofax will provide us an upgrade license and that worked for us.
In summary, the support still has to improve.
