Foxit Advanced PDF Editor offers you many more functions than that its name may imply. It not only edits existing PDF files, but it can also help you organize them and create new ones. It comes with an extra set of interesting tools to search and replace text across documents, merge PDF files, or identify text that has been scanned into a PDF file (OCR support).
One of the beauties of Foxit Advanced PDF Editor is its text re-flowing capabilities, which guarantees the document’s legibility even when text and images has been added or removed. You are given the possibility of deciding the right reading order of the new page, linking the various text boxes in the way that better fits your needs. The program will re-organize the resulting page without performing substantial changes in the existing layout, thus preserving the original look and feel of the document. But probably the program’s main asset is the plethora of editing functions that it provides. While other PDF editors simply allow you to “add” new stuff to the existing document (such as post-it notes and text boxes), Foxit’s tool allow you to truly edit the source content of the PDF document, using the same font and size. Likewise, you can insert new images into the re-flowable text, add headers and footers, etc.
This powerful PDF editor comes with many other interesting features, such as the possibility of searching and replacing content in batches. This allows you to replace, say, the old name of the company with a new one in all the PDF files in a folder without performing the same search/replace operation on each of them. The program’s searching capabilities are simply amazing, allowing you to find the requested content even by font, color, size. Watermarking, intelligent bookmark creation, and stamping are just some other features worth trying.
Foxit offers you a 30-day trial for you to check all of the program’s functionality before parting with the 99 dollars that the application costs.
