  • Bug File menu incomplete in German localization

    Hi, I've been using Foxit Reader for a while now and I remember I switched the UI to German right after installing the software. Today, I wanted to look at the properties of a file and could not find the related menu entry. When I wanted to give up, it occured to me that maybe I should switch the UI to English again, and there it was, right were I was looking for it: File > Properties. In the German UI, in the place were it should say 'Eigenschaften', there is no text. You can click it alright, and the Properties menu appears, but it takes a lot of luck if you don't know it. To be frank, the German localization does need a bit of polishing; often, the translated texts do not fit on buttons or other menu items. I can share a number of screenshots if that helps. Other than that, I am very happy with Foxit Reader. For now, see that attached screenshot with the File menu in German. Thanks - Hendrik
