    Format Sidebar Shall Go
    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Actually you can click on the arrow as the attached screenshot to hide the Format Panel, but it works in the version 11.1 or later version, please check which version you have.
    You can download the latest version11 and version10 from our website.

    The latest version of Foxit Reader is 11.1, the reason why we released Foxit PDF Editor 11.2 was that it embedded Foxit Sign module, while Foxit Sign is paid module that not available in free version, so Foxit Reader is not updated.

    The Foxit Editor I can find as Version 11.2 from here: https://www.foxit.com/pdf-editor/version-history.html

    But for the Foxit Reader, which I actually use, I can only find the old version 11.1 here: https://www.foxit.com/pdf-reader/version-history.html

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks... the problem mentioned by dsadas <https://forums.foxitsoftware.com/forum/portable-document-format-pdf-tools/foxit-phantompdf/183007-how-do-i-disable-foxit-11-s-new-format-tab?p=185386#post185386> should also be resolved... it interferes a lot with the organization of the comments.

    Hello, I have a different problem with version 11.1 (the format tab now works as it should - thanks!):

    When I add text to a PDF and I want to use paragraphs, I can do so without any problems UNTIL I click on the text again (in case I want to add more text) or if I want to move the text around. In these cases, all paragraphs are immediately deleted, which is very annoying. There is no difference between hard and soft returns, both are deleted.

    Before in version 10.x, you could re-select any text and then the width of the text was aligned to the right of the document as well, but all paragraphs were preserved. This is not possible anymore now...

    This is also happening to me. Please fix this.

    Sorry for the trouble. Would you please help make a screenshot to show the issue that the buttons for minimizing and maximizing are the same color as the background by default?

    Thanks,

    I downloaded version 11.1 and have a major problem: I can't open documents by double-clicking on them or right clicking. I can ONLY open documents by going through control-o and clicking through menus or from the recently used list on the start menu. I checked and my default app for PDF files is set to Foxit.

    Also, when the reader window is active, the buttons for minimizing and maximizing are the same color as the background by default.

    ETA later: Reinstalled and restarted computer and problem was solved. Leaving this message here in case anyone else has the same glitch. But the buttons still default to the background color.

    I hope to clarify the mentioned issue by the following screenshots.

    I write a text including a paragraph using the typewriter tool:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	1.PNG
Views:	640
Size:	20.2 KB
ID:	185387

    I then click Save to leave the editing mode. When I now move the text around, this happens:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	2.PNG
Views:	592
Size:	20.8 KB
ID:	185388

    The paragraph is simply deleted, no matter if a used a soft or hard return.

    The same problem occurs when I click on the text box again after leaving the edit mode. Again, I write a text with paragraphs:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	3.PNG
Views:	587
Size:	24.3 KB
ID:	185389

    Then I leave the edit mode by clicking on Save, for example. Now when I want to add more text into this text field by clicking on it, the following happens:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	4.PNG
Views:	585
Size:	21.3 KB
ID:	185390


    Regarding the ticket: I'm sorry, but I generally refuse to create an account for a website where I'm unnecessarily asked to provide my real name, my company name, and even my phone number. I do like the Foxit software, but not so much that I would be willing to give away my data. I know I could just fake the data, but that wouldn't be the point.

    Thank you for your help.
