  • How to stop the Format Pane from auto showing?

    Dear Foxit,

    When I write comments/notes/highlights, the Format Pane always comes up and disturbs my focus.
    I searched for a setting to prevent that but wasn't able to find any. I don't remember having to deal with that before I updated today. :/
    Is there any way to achieve this?

    I registered here in order to write a post about exactly the same problem. I very much enjoyed using Foxit Reader but the update has made commenting horrendously annoying.

      Sorry for the inconvenience brought to you by the new style of format panel provided in the new version 11. There is still no way to close the format panel permanently, I have already submitted the suggestion "Provide an option to control whether automatically prompt Format panel" to our product management team for their consideration with suggestion ID#PHANTOM-15428.

      Any further questions or concerns, please contact us again.

            Spent 10 minutes registering just to ask this question. Kindly request the Foxit team to fix this. While it's a helpful feature to bring up with one click, the format pane overlaps with the page text, and intrudes twice! Once when the user tries to highlight text, and another time when one tries to add text. The pane also opens while adding a "Note" where formatting is hardly required. There must be an auto-hide feature like with the bookmarks paneClick image for larger version

              Thanks for the suggestion. We will re-design the workflow for the panel in future update.
