After download and installation, when you open the app, you will get a prompt asking if you want to make Foxit PhantomPDF your default PDF file opener. This goes to say that besides just conversion, creation and editing of PDFs you can also make it your go-to PDF file opener.
Once this has been sorted based on your preference, you are exposed to the home page of the Foxit PhantomPDF app. In all ways, the view here is a lot similar to the display of Microsoft Word from the task bar to everything. But you can be sure that it does way more than a Word processor can.
This is the point where you get to meet the PhantomPDF proper. It provides users the option to either continue an existing subscription by signing in, purchasing a new subscription or enjoying a 30-days trial period. The trial period is to give you the assurance that you need to commit your cash here.
At the home page, you can see some tutorial videos that details all that the app can do for you.
From editing PDF files to linking and joining texts, Scan and OCR PDF to annotating, customizing, signing and creating a new PDF document, Foxit Phantom PDF delivers a well-rounded PDF experience that can comfortably compete with your favorite converter.
Using this PDF creation/converting app is just as easy and directional as your regular Word Processing Microsoft Word is. First, you can see from the Home tab of the task bar all the functions that you will need to create, edit, sign, scan or perform OCR. The home page just pretty much displays all that you can do with this app at a glance in this review.
Basically, the Home tab of the taskbar details all that you will need to create your own PDF file without a hassle. So, if you are looking to create a PDF file with the Foxit PhantomPDF being reviewed, you are good to go and covered on this one.
Moving on to the conversion aspect of the app, all you need to do is click the “Convert” option on the task bar. From here, you can choose what location you want to get your PDF file from. The options available includes accessing it from files saved to your system or fetching it from a connected scanner.
At this point, the process is quite straight-forward and does not require any special skills to execute.
The conversion options to Office available on the Foxit PhantomPDF ranges from Word to PowerPoint and Excel, but that is not all. The juicy part is that it also provide you the option of selecting the specific version of Office you want to convert into. This range from Office 97 to 2003. Now, this is what I call a sophisticated app that is as responsive to users need as it is to delivering quality.
The downside to this is that it does not offer options beyond 2003. So if you have Office 2017 installed on your computer and will like the converted file to be in that version, it may not be all that possible.
The “Edit” tab on the taskbar is the go-to place on the Foxit PhantomPDF to edit PDF files. To achieve this, you need to first get the file unto the app via the “Convert” tab. After this is done, you can now work on editing the file as you will like it to be done.
At this point, you can chose to edit texts on your file or to edit objects. In the object aspect, there a whole lot of options available. You can edit the images on the file or you can just work on the shape and the shade of colors too.
Given all that has been reviewed about the Foxit PhantomPDF, you can conveniently make a guided choice at this point about the decision to select which software to opt for. On the overall, Foxit is a good grade PDF application that you can count in to deliver on the job anytime and at any point.
