    • The accessibility of the commands is great, the most important features are free. I haven't felt the need to change to a third pdf viewer. Plus, you can print to PDF when many other software started eliminating this option. Guest • Jul 2019 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The UI is kludgy and looks like it belongs in the 1990's. Also, basic functionality now included in Adobe isn't (or at least not easily) found in Foxit.
