  • foxit reader linux - back button


    Thanks for the new linux version.

    I cannot find the way to return to previous page after clicking on a link.

    Use case is :
    1) I click on a internal link (go to page 200 from page 2)
    2) I want to return to page 2 (I have to remember the page, and go to page 2 -> I would like to be able to ctrl + left arrow or something)

      Please consider again my question

        Did you mean the "Previous View" which exists in Foxit Reader for Windows? Please let us know. Thank you.

            Now there is no the feature "Previous view" in Foxit Reader for Linux, but we have reported your requirement to our team, they will consider it in future version. Report ID:MACLNX-33

            Thank you.

              I would like to second this request - this feature is absolutely essential for me in a pdf reader, I will not use one without it.

                  I am using 2.3 linux version. The feature is still missing.

                  Thanks for your help in releasing this feature in next linux version

                      I wish version 2.5 will be released very soon...

                      If you really use it to read PDF, you must know you need this feature.

                        I have installed 2.4 on Linux and I can report that this feature is now there although it does not seem to listed in "What's New" or manual.
                        To use feature, choose from menu - View - Go to
                        and you will see "Previous View" and "Next View" with shortcuts "Alt+Left" and "Alt+Right" which I use as there are no buttons by other Navigation buttons (previous and next page).
                        You can get these on a tool bar by clicking on "View" button (button with "eye" on it to right of page navigation, not View in menu bar) which will show Previous view if window is wide enough (else you will need to click on the 3 dots on the right), or if you right click on this toolbar and untick "Show all labels" you have smaller icons without labels.
                        Seems to be no way of customising toolbar to just have "Previous view" and "Next View" on same line as page navigation.
