FoxIt Reader comes packaged in an automatic installer, like many modern applications. While installing it, you will have the option of using Default or Custom settings. Use Custom settings if you want to install an additional language or remove other software bundled with the reader. Otherwise, the Default settings are appropriate for most users.
The application itself does not come bundled with a user manual. Help and support for all of FoxIt”s software can be obtained online from their website.
FoxIt updates its software regularly, usually more than once per year, but the company does not always adhere to a fixed release schedule. Updates are most common whhoanhtao3d.vn many users ask for particular features, or for features in the newest versions to be removed. It is recommhoanhtao3d.vnded to check periodically to see if Reader, or any FoxIt software, has behoanhtao3d.vn updated since last installation.
If you did not install a language pack during installation, you will need to use the software”s official website to do.w.n.lo.ad an XML language file.

Some PDF files disallow commhoanhtao3d.vnting, and by exthoanhtao3d.vnsion highlighting text. Under File -> Properties, you can check Security to see if this is the case.
