Foxit PDF Editor is a tool that lets you edit PDF files without requiring additional components installed.

Clean feature lineup

Opening a PDF file in the familiar interface can be done by using the file explorer, or via the drag and drop method. In order to edit text, you must select individual pieces. So, it is not possible to edit the entire content of a page without working on each piece of text.

Editing operations

You can view and edit properties for each selected text, such as value, text mode (fill text, stroke text, fill then stroke text, invisible text), character and word spacing, font style and size, horizontal scale, position, rotation, shear, scale, fill and stroke color, clipping.

The text can be easily modified (content only) by double-clicking it. Furthermore, you can add new text, graphics (e.g. line, rectangle, polyline, curve), images (from file, or create a new one), align objects, change page layout, merge and split text, and more.

Photo editing and other handy features

Image editing options include using a magic wand, eyedropper, dodge and burn, spot healing brush, clone stamp, and others, but you can also apply filters, such as dodge, vivify, softness, sharpen, binarize, convex etc. Additionally, you can import and export PDF files (yes, Foxit PDF Editor is also a PDF joiner and splitter).

Foxit PDF Editor is a great tool to modify the contents of a PDF document, but only experienced users would probably appreciate it. The tool's user guide is not available, and we're afraid beginners would get bored pretty quickly trying to figure out how to use it.

Small flaws

There are some minor inconveniences to be found here. For example, if you want to change the color of the text from text properties, you cannot choose one from a palette - you can only input its RGB values (which is clearly a task for power users).

Bottom line

All in all, Foxit PDF Editor is a great tool for editing PDF files, but it could definitely use some improvements.
