    That sounds worse than "very annoying." I'm glad I switched to Qoppa - this sounds only slightly less unusable than it was before.

    Hello, I have a different problem with version 11.1 (the format tab now works as it should - thanks!):

    When I add text to a PDF and I want to use paragraphs, I can do so without any problems UNTIL I click on the text again (in case I want to add more text) or if I want to move the text around. In these cases, all paragraphs are immediately deleted, which is very annoying. There is no difference between hard and soft returns, both are deleted.

    Before in version 10.x, you could re-select any text and then the width of the text was aligned to the right of the document as well, but all paragraphs were preserved. This is not possible anymore now...

    Pipps Actually,our produt management team have redesigned the working mechanism of the format tab in the most current release version 11.1 of Foxit PDF Editor.Please help to tive the latest version 11.1 a try by downloading it from our official download center
    In the latest version 11.1,the format tab won't be appear again automatically when you reuse the same kind of tools again once you have already closed the format tab previously until you choose to manually reopen it again. To reopen the format tab again,please refer to this article.
    If you still have any new suggestions or improvements for format panel,please don't hesitate to let us know.

    I will not be paying a penny for Foxit software until this outrageous issue is resolved. It seems rather self-defeating that they do not solve this.

    Frankly, whoever designed this ridiculous "Format Tab" should be fired and whoever is blocking the implementation of its removal should outed.

    Until this and several other basic deficiences are rectified, I will simply continue to use a torrented version of the software and withhold payment.

    It really beggars belief to consider that in 2021 there is still no viable or fit for purpose alternative to the Acrobat bloatware that I refuse to use.

    Updates from engineering team: This is a new adjustment to facilitate the process of the underline tool, so once you select the text and with the underline tool, the highlight section will keep selected then you can directly change the underline color without selecting the underline again. Compare to the previous, it's more flexible.

    Thank you for the update guys, looks great.

    Edit: I found one thing, when I underline something it automatically highlights it like in the picture and makes me chose the color. Now before this update it would get highlighted if I click on the underlined text, and it was not automatically selected after underlining a text.

    This for me is a little annoying since after every underline I would need to click somewhere on the page so that the highlight disappears.

    Jakob Your opinion of Dark mode was forwarded to DEV team for checking by ID#PHANTOM-16298. Thanks for your feedback.

    Everything seems a bit uniform, it would be really nice if there was just a bigger difference. Stronger gray tones, everything just a little bit more contrasty, darker.

    perhaps you could implement a design editor or a menu in which you can set the color and brightness of the buttons and the various areas of the program interface.

    1. Darkmode:

    In my opinion, the darkmode could be darker, with more contrast between Buttons, hover-effekt on buttons and the program interface. Buttons darker, interface also darker, but brighter than buttons. The thing for me is, that, if I work with an bright and low contrast monitor, the program also looks bright. From a design point of view, there could simply be a little more contrast, so that buttons and hover effects stand out a little better from the program interface.

    2. View > Night Mode

    Jakob ,For the format tab suggestion that you mentioned,I have submitted the new feature request “Change the size of the format tab more and the buttons in the format tab would then be automatically rearranged” to our product management team's consideration already with suggestion ID#PHANTOM-16288.
    The version 11.1 version history still hasn't been updated on the German website yet, our marketing team will update the new version information to the German website later this month.

    For the situation "The dark mode is okay, maybe a little light",do you mean that the existing dark mode is too dark and you wish the dark mode could provide a brighter color?
    Concerning the situation "The inversion function of the document view still does not work properly (black text becomes light gray, the document background dark gray, lines remain black and therefore difficult to see, and form fields are dark purple, which is also difficult to see",I am sorry that I am still not clear about which feature you mentioned. Please let me which feature is the inversion function that you mentioned and send us one PDF file sample, take a screenshot of the incorrect display that you referred.

    Look forward to your reply.

    Now version 11.1 is out! However, if the update is not yet offered via the Foxit Updater, a test version must be downloaded from the website.

    Foxit PDF Editor Pro:

    ENGLISH: Download
    German: Download

    Foxit PDF Reader:

    ENGLISH: Download
    German: Download

    If you download the English .exe, you can't change the language to german.

    The dark mode is okay, maybe a little light (it could be better, and it would be better, if the contrast between buttons and the normal program window were stronger) and pop-ups, like the settings-windows or other, are not included (always white). The inversion function of the document view still does not work properly (black text becomes light gray, the document background dark gray, lines remain black and therefore difficult to see, and form fields are dark purple, which is also difficult to see .

    The most important thing, the format-Tab, have now a long button with an little arrow, like on the left page at the page-, bookmark-, comment-, ...-Tab. You can collapse the Tab in and out, and you can resize the tab a little bit. It would be really nice if you could change the size of the format tab more and the buttons in the format tab would then be automatically rearranged - like in a toolbar, e.g. in Photoshop.

    So far, things are running smoothly, maybe Foxit will upload the description of the update to the version history (edit: The new version is already described on the English website of Foxit, on the German website it is still missing.)

    Jakob!

    Jakob and all,

    I believe "a few months later" is a typo. Amanda was meant for a few days. In face, we're preparing for the formal release of version11.1. You guys should see the new version within next week or two if everything goes well.
    In order to get better user experience on a newer version, we spent more time and efforts on development and testing, your feedbacks are important for us, we have collected all and forwarded to our Dev team, of course, the format panel has been given the highest priority in version11.1.
    Again, we sincerely apologize for any hassle and inconvenience the version11.0 has caused. Let's look forward to the newer version, and thanks for your patience.

    Maybe, considering that one user in this thread single-handedly reported almost 50 bugs. (I am in awe of that user's patience - I couldn't deal with the format panel long enough to get the information needed to report the one crash I found.)

    I suspect this is primarily a management issue - I doubt that the developers decide priorities on their own. If management is prioritizing new features over bug fixes and/or not giving the developers enough time for proper testing, the current situation would not be unexpected.
