  • Screen positioning problems with Linux Foxit Reader 2.4.1

    I am using Foxit Reader 2.4.1 on Linux Slackware64 14.2 and KDE4. I have Foxit Reader set as the default application for .PDF files. When I click on a PDF file to open it, Foxit Reader invariable opens behind all other windows necessitating me to close or shrink obfuscating windows in order to get to the Foxit Reader window. Also, it usually opens with the menu bar off the top of the screen necessitating me to use ALT-mouse to drag to down so the menu is visible. No other programs behave this way including the default/shipped Okular PDF reader.

    Dear OHPRS,

    I apologize for any difficulty using Foxit Software.For this situation you mentioned,we need your help to provide with us the following information for further investigation:
    1: Do you use duplex display monitors? If so,we need to know which display mode did you choose for your multiple monitors "Duplicate" "extend" "Disable first monitor" or any other mode?
    2:How about if you double click on Foxit Reader icon to open Foxit Reader application directly without opening any PDF file on your part? Will it be opened behind all other windows too?
    3:Did this situation happen to all PDF files or just some specific PDF files when you tried to open them? Please send us one PDF file that you tried to open.
    4:Send us a screenshot to show us the situation"it usually opens with the menu bar off the top of the screen".
    5:It is better if could help to record a video to show us all of the two issues you mentioned at your convenience.
    If it is inconvenience to upload the files here, you may email it to (Attn:Lisa). And indicate this thread link. Thank you.

    Look forward to your reply.
