Some months ago I wrote an article about creating and managing PDF files using a very powerful software, if you missed it clicking on the link below to read it Power Your Business With Foxit Phantom PDF!!!
Today, I’m back to you with this simple review of the new Foxit PhantomPDF™ Business 6.1 .
In this new version you can better manage and create your PDF files but let’s have a look at some shots I took a few minutes ago.
To better follow how review you can download a trial version from http://www.foxitsoftware.com/downloads/#Foxit-PhantomPDF-Business/English
Step 1 – UI selection
After installing the software, you are prompted to start the program and the main UI (User Interface) is now ribbon styled with big a grouped buttons.
If you do not feel comfortable with this ribbon style can easily click on the View menu, scroll till UI Options and choose the Classic Style. See picture below.
Of course you can revert to Ribbon Style UI in any moment without having to restart the software. See Picture above.
Step 2 – Exploring some new features
After testing the classic style UI I reverted to Ribbon Style UI so to get a bit more acquainted with this new style already proposed in many other software.
At glance I saw that this new Foxit PhantomPDF™ Business 6.1 version isn’t just a simple update or a revamped version but it has more functions. Please, have a look at the picture below to see that one important added feature is the Text & Paragraph option set in the Edit Content group. In fact, you can now easily and with more precision than before edit the content. You can select a paragraph and change attributes as well as formatting or Font and so on. These features was missing in previous version or not working properly always.
Step 3 – Completing the PDF file
In the picture below can you see a new UI section labelled “Form”.
I found this section renewed and more practical than before. At glance you can choose among the several parts available to create a new form or customize an existing one.
In this short review I pointed out the easiness of use Foxit PhantomPDF™ Business 6.1 to modify, complete or create a new PDF file. Don’t forget that for a very little price you get a complete solution to create rich content PDF files to include new pictures, video, form, and security too. Only a little cons I found in it that you can easily manage layers positions and order but cannot edit layer or create new one. Anyhow in a range from 0 to 100 points Foxit PhantomPDF™ Business 6.1 I can assign a score of 95 points.
I Invite you to download the 30 days free trial version and give it a test, maybe you can love it too like me. I use Foxit PhantomPDF™ since five years ago first the Standard then the Business edition.
Stay tuned, I have new tips for you soon!
