  • Feature Comment Format Keyboard Shortcut customization no longer available in version 11.0


    Can we have the option to create keyboard shortcuts for extra comment formats back in Foxit PDF Reader 11.0? It was available in Foxit Reader 10.0

    At the moment we are not able to create keyboard shortcuts for bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, subscripts and superscripts among other comment formats. However these options are currently able to be added to the Quick Access toolbar.

    Allowing us to customize the comment formats using keyboard shortcuts would save a lot of time when editing instead of having to click onto the command in the ribbon each time to change the format.

    Below I have added snapshots, indicating the missing feature:

    [URGENT] Without this feature, Foxit Reader becomes useless for students for taking notes. Without being able to use basic bold, italics & underline shortcuts, would increase the amount of time to edit comments. This is the most urgent update required in Foxit Reader 11.0. Next college/post-grad is just about to begin.

    [email protected] ,V11 version of Foxit PDF Editor/Reader is a newly redesigned application with a brand-new user interface. It really doesn't yet provide the comment format option under keyboard in Customize tools dialog box for users to customize shortcuts for Comment format related tools.
    Regarding this situation,I have submitted the suggestion "Support to customize shortcuts for comment format related tools" as a new feature to our product management team's reference with suggestion ID#PHANTOM-15691.

    For your current workaround,please uninstall V11 and downgrade to version 10.1.4 by downloading it from the link below:
