  • crash Foxit crashes when I use Typewriter tool

    As the title suggests, whenever I use the typewriter tool Foxit becomes completely unresponsive and just closes itself down. This happens in version 8312 but I have updated to 975 and the problem still persists. Fresh install and also deleted the regedit and that hasn't resolved it.

    Please advise?

    We apologize for any difficulty using Foxit Software!
    Regarding the situation you encountered, would you mind provide me some more detailed descriptions for investigating?
    1. Specific version details under Help->About Foxit PDF Editor.
    2. Is it for all files or just some particular file?
    3. Please find the log file for me by following steps:
    a. Please unzip the attachment, you will get files 'GetFoxitDump.bat' and 'procdump.exe', please keep them in the same folder.
    b. Try to reproduce the issue, when Foxit getting no response, double click on GetFoxitDump.bat immediately, then you will get dmp file in the same folder, like FoxitPDFReader_190904_173252.dmp.
    c. If there is no dmp file created, please try step2 again until dmp file is created.
    Also for more information, you can submit a support ticket here and put Roy in attention, thanks!

        Hi Roy_Chen

        No matter when or how many times I try, I am unable to receive a log file when the program crashes. Tried uses admin rights but nothing seems to work.

        The problem seemed to go away for a few days but now it has just come back! Currently using FoxitPhantomPDF version 975

          If you were still using version 9.7.5, what I suggest is to upgrade to v10 or v11 to see if it helps, cuz v9 is an early product which had been out of maintenance for now.
          Here is a link for v11:

            This issue only seems to be isolated to a specific user though and will that still work with the 9.7.5 licence?

              Go to "Start"->"Run"-> input regedit -> find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Foxit Software\Foxit PhantomPDF 9.0" and "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit PhantomPDF 9.0" to delete the whole folder of Foxit PhantomPDF 9.0;
              2) Download a newest version of PhantomPDF 9.7.5 from the link below´╝Ü
              and install it.
              If the issue still persists,please help to try out the version 11:
