    Hi guys,

    There's only ribbon toolbar since version 7.3.You may refer to this article for why Foxit changed from the classic UI to the ribbon UI:
    https://www.foxitsoftware.com/blog/b...sts-of-change/

    If you need a version prior to version 7.3 that supports the Classic Toolbar Mode, please email to [email protected] to get the download link of the version that supports the Classic Toolbar Mode. Thank you

    Market research? Haha.

    I'll keep using v7.2.8.1124 until it stops working.

    Any news in these two years? Have you already solved your UI problem?

    Alright, Foxit, Microsoft has finally admitted that the ribbon was a mistake and is returning to normal toolbars... I mean their new totally-not-a-toolbar 'simplified ribbon' that looks and acts exactly like a toolbar. Can we expect Foxit to follow suit and abandon this embarrassment of UI design?

    Sorry to say that classic toolbar is no longer available in version 7.3 and above, and we don't have the plan to bring it back. Sorry again for the inconvenience.

    i registered just to bump this.

    (and telling people to use a version years out of date is not a valid solution, that opens up all sorts of potential security issues. it's far easier to just find something else. goodbye, sadly it's back to adobe for now until i find an alternative as good as this used to be)

    I also signed up for the sole purpose of asking for this back. I first used FoxIt because it was lightweight, had no automated updates, had infrequent updates and had the classic menu. There is no longer value for me as none of these features exist for FoxIT.

    Ribbon is a failed experiment - universally agreed as programming for the lowest common denominator, slowing down users and in general being a frustration. If you made the decision to go 1 menu rather than 2, wouldn't "evidence based decisions" dictate that you at least ask your user base which they would prefer? I've had enough of features I don't use, frequest updates, updates I don't want, and this Ribbon, which although is being phased out of most apps appears to now be the only option in FoxIT. For goodness sake - read the 16 pages of feedback. We don't want Ribbon, we never have and we never will.

    Ribbon is not a mistake. It's a joke.

    I also signed up specifically to comment on this. I've had my updates turned off for 2 years since a co-worker installed Foxit at my suggestion and I discovered there was no longer any way to display a classic toolbar instead of the horrid, horrid ribbon. (BTW thanks to the person who mentioned LibreOffice, I'm definitely checking that out.) I hope Foxit will reconsider this decision!

    Two whole years, and Foxit still refuses to fix its huge, glaring bug and give users a minimum of basic functionality? Fuck them, I'm switching to Sumatra or xChange.

    Any news on making Foxit more user friendly? Or are we still to expect growing (seldom used) bloating and screen clutter (Ribbon)? Really a shame as Foxit was so useful.
