    the new format tab is really inconvenient, I usually use Foxit together with other software by splitting the screen, with the format tab on the right the reading area is tiny. I suggest that developers enable the option to change this tab to horizontal as it was in the previous version.

    Lisa_lee You should pay attention very quickly to this. It's really, really annoying this new format panel. I use Foxit for a long time and because of this table, I already download other pdf viewer. The new layout, ok, is great! But, please, remove this VERY LARGE format panel or make it invisible when the user hide him for the first time. It's not that frequently that someone wants to change the format.

    mellowyellow ,Sorry for the inconvenience brought to you by the new style of format panel provided in the new version 11.
    There is still not any way to make the format panel horizontal. I have already submitted your feedback to our product management team for their further perusal with report ID#
    PHANTOM-15688.

    Any further questions or concerns,please contact us again.

    The problem is that the Task Bar (Format tab) suddenly obscures 30% of the reading area / "document pane", so you can't read anything there without manually closing the Task Bar. In version 10, that didn't happen. In version 11, we now have *more* work.

    Couldn't we have an option to make that bar Horizontal, like before?

    When you make comments and edit text or other objects, the Format tab appears and it can not be disabled since users need to access to the tools/options to edit it.
    If you don't want to see it, you can click on X to close it, and it will be back when you double click on the comment again.

    started a topic How do I disable Foxit 11's new "Format tab"?

    How do I disable Foxit 11's new "Format tab"?

    How do I disable and/or move Foxit 11's new "Format tab"? Specifically:

    1. Is there a keyboard shortcut? UPDATE: On Windows, Shift + F4 hides the Task Pane it lives in.
    2. How do I disable it on Mac?
    3. How do I disable it on Windows?
    4. On Windows, is there a registry setting?

    NOTE: By "Format tab", I'm referring to the Foxit Editor 11's documentation, page 8, "What's new":
    "Instead, a Format tab appears in the right panel when you make comments and edit text or other objects"

    MAC: On Mac OS 11.2.3, Foxit Editor 11.0.0.0510 does not display any Format Tab, which is the behavior I'd like to see in the Windows version too--at least as an option.
