Full PDF suite

Foxit Phantom PDF Standard is a productivity application that provides its users with a full suite of PDF toolkits. Designed for easy and convenient use, this program comes with a collection of tools that allow you to view, share, and edit your PDF documents. It also comes with document protection capabilities, including password encryption and file signing. With several options presented in an intuitive interface, the app offers just about everything you need in PDF editing software.

Feature-packed PDF toolkit

Foxit Phantom PDF Standard caters to both advanced and novice users. It comes with a clean and easy-to-use Microsoft Office-style ribbon interface that places all tools in a familiar position. With this, you can find all the tools you need quickly. Not only that, but the app also has an extensive list of supported languages, letting you work on your documents regardless of which language you speak.

As noted, the app provides you with a wide selection of editing options so that you can modify every aspect of your PDF files. You can extract, remove, and duplicate contents, as well as crop and rotate them. Additionally, you can add pages from a file or scanned document to your file. The app also allows users to insert images and other multimedia files on any page. More than that, you can also modify the background, header, and footer of your PDF document.

Like other popular paid or free PDF tools, the program also comes with annotations and highlight capabilities. With this, you can mark any part of your file or add any notes and comments. The app also has a bookmark manager and a comprehensive search function, which allows you to locate any element within the PDF file. Furthermore, the app has form design tools, including XFA form filling, allowing you to fill out forms sent digitally.

In addition to editing, the app also allows you to create a PDF document. You can make a completely new one from multiple files, from a scanned document, or your clipboard. You can also use the app to create PDF documents directly from Office applications, such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.

Foxit Phantom PDF Standard extends its capabilities by allowing users to convert PDFs to various formats, including DOC, text, and images. With this, you can easily share content with other software. As with other PDF converters, you can also use this app to convert documents saved in other formats into PDF.

Document protection and collaboration

This program is primarily a PDF editor, but the app is also known for its extensive document protection features. The app has a wide range of powerful document security tools that you can use to protect your files from online snoopers, including password protection. The app also employs certificate encryption and digital signature validation to prevent others from reading confidential or private information that might reside in your documents.

More than robust document protection, Foxit Phantom PDF Standard allows easy file sharing and collaboration. With DocuSign, SharePoint, NetDocuments, and iManage Worksite integration, the app makes it easy for users to share documents with anyone in their organization. It also supports file sharing via cloud storage services, such as Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, and Dropbox. Furthermore, it features commenting tools, shared reviews, and ConnectedPDF support that allows collaboration on documents and file change notifications.

Users must note that the app is not free to use. There is a free trial period of 30 days. However, for you to use all its features, you need to register. Registration asks for personal information, including your name, email address, company name, and phone number. You can skip providing these details. However, you will only be able to access the program's free features, which are not enough to determine if the app is worth buying.

Everything you need in one app

Foxit Phantom PDF Standard is a complete PDF management toolkit that works for both home users and businesses. The app includes just about all the features you may need to create or edit your PDF documents. It even comes with advanced features, such as document security and collaboration tools. As long as you don't mind registering and paying, it is a good choice if you are looking for a convenient and capable PDF creation and editing program. 

Ideal for any size business

Ideal for groups of all sizes, this full featured solution to create, edit, comment, collaborate and share, secure, organize, export, scan and OCR, and sign PDF documents and forms. It also supports ConnectedPDF features, which extend the ISO PDF standard to allow each PDF to carry a unique identifier that leverages the power of the cloud to keep you and your PDFs connected, and enables you to track and share your documents easily.
