FOXIT Reader

A while ago I had change my default PDF reader from Adobe Acrobat Reader to Foxit Reader, well it work well for few months. I like Foxit because it's fast to load and use less memory and space. It support PDF Form and Javascript (so no problem for those corporate forms) unfortunately found following functions which cause me to switch back to Acrobar Reader.

  • Text selection are not as good as Acrobat Reader, selecting a block of text are difficult.
  • When you print to a PDF File like CutePDF Write the PDF file created became image. You can't select the text and search for text no longor working. Why I want to print a PDF file to another PDF file are separate issue and will not discuss here. :evil:
