Though originally devised as a closed file for printing houses, PDF files are now not only ubiquitous but also the most popular format for exchanging information in a secure yet flexible way. As one of the most popular free PDF tools, Foxit Reader is all you’ll need to view, read, and annotate any PDF document securely and effectively, and sign and share your own PDFs just as safely.
The program is both simple and intuitive, especially if you are already familiar with the ribbon design present in all Office tools. The look and feel of the program’s interface and its ribbon will immediately remind you of the latest versions of Word or Excel, thus reducing the interface’s learning curve to a minimum.
You will find basic viewing options, such as the fit-to-page feature, the “zoom lens”, the rotation tool, and – and this is a feature you won’t come across with very often – a “reflow” option. This feature breaks the PDF’s fixed layout principle and performs a temporary transformation of your document into a text-based file that the program’s viewer can reflow according to your needs. This can make an excellent accessibility tool for those who find it difficult to read PDF files with small-sized fonts and long fixed lines. more
