Foxit PhantomPDF Standard Editor's Review

When it comes to dealing with PDF documents, the default app for most users is Adobe’s Acrobat. Acrobat is a powerhouse app and the latest iteration offers myriads of capabilities. However, not every user needs such a feature rich, resource consuming and steeply priced PDF tool for usage. If you want an inexpensive PDF editor that offers you nearly everything Adobe’s versatile PDF tool offers, opt for Foxit Software's PhantomPDF. The app will be suited for most users except the very demanding ones. It lets you create, edit and tweak PDF feels with ease.

FoxitPhantomPDF runs on Microsoft Windows XP and later versions and offers support for both 32 and 64 bit versions. To create PDF documents you will need Office 2003 and later versions as well. To leverage all features of the app you will need a powerful PC but that is also the case with similar PDF tools. It is available in languages like Spanish and German apart from English. The installation does not take much time and is quite straightforward.

The app interface is intuitive and a new user can get hang of things quickly. Since the app gets installed as a printer driver, making PDF from documents is really simple. To make PDF from files, you can print from specific app interfaces and select Foxit Phantom PDF Suite as printer. Of course, you can also create PDFs using the app itself. Similar to Acrobat, you also get a PDF viewer with the app which works nicely.

Editing text and objects in PDF files is simple and the app lets you edit lines of text and alter attributes as you do in word processors. Inserting media elements like video in PDF files is also simple. You can customize pages to an extent with watermark, headers and footers etc. Foxit Phantom PDF Suite comes with a set of shape drawing tools too. When it comes to exporting and batch conversion of files to PDF, the app performs well. You can export documents to MS Office formats, HTML and XML formats using this app. For working with precision and multiple objects on a page, you can use its zoom, guides and rulers.

As it is, FoxitPhantomPDF does not perform differently from its pricier Adobe rival as far as basic operations are concerned. However, when you move to advanced features and tasks, the differences become evident. For example, the app deals well with standard specific PDF documents like PDF/A,PDF/E and PDF/X but cannot generate them. There is an automatic conversion method but in case you do not feel okay with the output there is no other alternative. Its printer driver supports PDF/A1-b but you cannot work with CMYK colors. The Advanced Editing mode in the app is not always effective. It cannot convert the RGB objects to CMYK either.

The PhantomPDF printer driver may offend seasoned Acrobat users for its less than perfect functioning. Line spacing may not be accurate at all times, which can be disappointing for users dealing with text based documents.
One area where you will be content with the app is its processing speed. Unless your PC is really old you will find the app converting multiple PDF files with noticeable speed. This is also true about image and media rich complex PDF documents. It also combines several documents into PDF really fast.

Positive Points:
 -  Much more economical than Acrobat, needs less resources.
 -  Well designed interface, lower learning curve.
 -  Speedy processing of PDF files, even for complex documents.
 -  Wide OS and language support.

Negative Points:
 -  Advanced features do not work as expected sometimes.
 -  No support for CMYK printing.

Conclusion
Noticeably, FoxitPhantomPDF performs decently for basic needs and its processing speed is commendable. It does offer lots of features for its price. The app does not consume oodles of disk space or resources compared to industry rivals. With suitable hardware configuration and required software, you will be able to create, edit and convert PDF files with ease. However, its advanced features still need some tweaking and lack of CMYK support will come across as a dampener for demanding users.

Rating:4/5
