Pros: After trying different PDF authoring software packages, I found that for Scientific Linux this is by far the best, it is the only that allows you to do fast and effective authoring of PDF files.

Information for non Linux users: Adobe Acrobat has been deprecated for some years now and Foxit is the only one that compares (and exceeds) its functionality being a fast, secure and affordable solution. Local installation (no sudo privileges) is easy because every step is documented in the support centre. I use it to comment and review scientific papers.

Cons: When viewing documents on Foxit, I haven't found a way to directly click on local (stored) PDF href links, I need to look for the local file and open it manually.

Overall: It is extremely useful in Linux. It makes the process of reviewing scientific paper very easy.

Pros: Features are on par with Adobe. The user interface is modern but not crazy like the recent Adobe Acrobat interface redesigns. Generally fast and gets the job done.

Cons: Very few cons. I have had mild intermittent crash problems but nothing that is a consistent problem that hinders use.

Overall: Great product at a good price. Company is solid with support.

Pros: is an application that has been of great help to me, especially since I have to make and send different documents every day, such as admonitions, information, schedules, etc. It allows me to transform the information in pdf and avoid any modification.

Cons: the download is quite fast as well as moving the documents to pdf, so for the people who must send documents via mail this application will be very useful.

Overall: works perfectly from any computer, you do not need to have internet for your use.

Pros: Foxit software allows me to open PDF's on my computer. It has useful tools like highlighting and selecting. There are different versions available to use depending on your needs.

Cons: I do wish there was more capability with the regular version of Foxit. It allows me to do what I need to, but not be creative.

Foxit is such a great program when you work with many files daily!

Pros: The program is easy to use with little to no training needed. You can combine multiple pages into 1 PDF document to make it much easier on customers. I have received a lot of positive feedback that they are grateful I took the time to do that after they initially sent in multiple separate pages.

Cons: When arranging the documents into 1 file, they get out of order very easily so if you do not fix it yourself the first time you will have to go back and do that.

Overall: It has been a great tool I use all day long!

Pros: for my work I must constantly send documents to my students which should not be modified, with foxitReader allows me to move them quietly from Microsoftword to pdf.

Overall: allows me to quickly transfer documents that by their content should not be modified or reused by other people, thus maintaining their originality

Pros: My favorite thing about this product is the various tools available to work with pdfs. I mostly use the security feature and the signature feature. I also like how easy it is to extract, switch and combine pages in pdfs.

Cons: This software tends to crash and not respond a lot.

Overall: This is our go to software for opening, viewing, and editing pdfs.

I really enjoy using Foxit. It sure beats having to pay for Adobe and still has all the functions.

Pros: It does everything that Adobe does. It seems more user friendly and just the overall navigation is better.

Cons: So far, I have not come across anything I did not like yet. I guess my only downfall is that I didn't come across it sooner!

Overall: Having the same functions as Adobe but in a much simpler format.

Pros: I primarily use the editing features. It allows me to find online resources, edit out some of the distractions, and create PDF-files to use for my classes. I also use it to combine PDFs and so forth. It has been very helpful.

Cons: Foxit software has frequent updates that seem to be more about advertising than truly updating the software. That can get tiresome.

Overall: I am able to create my own material for my college classes and edit the material in ways that I could not do before buying Foxit.

Pros: The best feature about this is that it provides wide variety of tools in order to view and modify our docs easily and that to at no cost. It is seemingly more fast that Adobe and once easily understand its GUI and work properly.

Cons: Currently I don't see any cons as when compared to Adobe it is providing the same features at no cost.

One should go ahead with Foxit instead of Adobe.
