Foxit PhantomPDF is a PDF creator, editor and reader that’s got all of the tools, but none of the bloat.
Like Foxit’s other PDF apps, Foxit PhantomPDF is a lovely program to use. It’s light on resources and quick to install. Once it’s up and running, there’s a tutorial and a welcome wizard, as well as lots of help and online resources. Thanks to this ease of use and excellent planning, using Foxit PhantomPDF is a really pleasant experience.
To start creating PDFs from scratch, you’ll need to use the Foxit PhantomPDF Advanced Editor – basically an editing app that allows you to create a PDF as easily as making a Word or other document. You’ll be able to add text, graphics, images and more, all from within a very easy-to-use interface. What’s more, you can create PDFs from common Microsoft Office programs, like Word and PowerPoint, in just one click.
Foxit PhantomPDF also helps you out when it comes to editing PDFs, whether on a document level, like when you want to remove or replace pages, or on a content level, like when you want to add stamps, correct text or add images such as stamps and comments. All these tools are available across Foxit PhantomPDF’s top menu, while right clicking will bring up even more options.
If you want to carry out simpler tasks, like reading a document in PDF format, Foxit PhantomPDF can help you out. There are a selection of viewing modes, bookmarking, excellent full screen navigation, and more.
In all, Foxit PhantomPDF is a fantastic app, with all the functionality you’ll need from a full PDF creation and editing app. It’s smooth, easy to use and, all in all, great investment.
