    fun fact: adobe acrobat dc pro actually has a side tab and Foxit inspired from it. Just wait for the fix or roll back to V10

    Made an account just to say please add my support to this request. I grade papers using split screen on Windows, and this new feature makes my job a lot harder. I think the most ideal way is to at least allow people to position the bar where they like.

    I'm rolling back to version 10 for now. Then I'll be seeking a replacement.
    At least the tab should close itself when the object is unselected / when the edit mode is left / when pressing Esc

    I can fully reproduce this issue as well, so I already submitted it to our QA/Dev team as report id#QCPHANTOM-27908, I will forward an update the moment I have it. Thanks for your report.

    Doris Wang ,

    That doesn't really matter, you just have to resize the Foxit window smaller, which then creates a scroll bar in the Format tab. And if you then scroll with the mouse it works very slowly (Win 10 20H2 19043.1081, 64 bit). The same effect also occurs in the Foxit Reader. My mouse is no problem, in other windows my mouse works fine (and also in the main window of Foxit with the pdf).

    Sincerely, Jakob!
    Right, I was able to reproduce that. The scrolling is ultra slow, like one pixel at a time. Unuseable as it is. I am reporting this in a multi-bug ticket in a hope they see your discovery.

It would be really helpful to offer an option to display the format options either in the ribbon menu or in the Format-Tab, or to be able to minimize these, similar to the side view, bookmark view etc. on the left-hand side, and open them when necessary.

    It would also be very helpful, see

    danmirage, if there should be a format tab in the ribbon menu again, to leave the comment page open and not constantly switch to the Format-Tab. It is really difficult to comment in the flow, you have to constantly click back in the comment tab and on the desired comment function. Otherwise I would have to think about whether to integrate the comment functions into the format tab in the ribbon settings.

    I also noticed that when the functions in the Format-Tab require a scroll list (because of the many setting options), scrolling down with the mouse is extremely slow. I hope that can be fixed as well.

    Jakob May I have a screenshot for the functions in the Format-Tab which require a scroll list?
