  • Using a tablet with pen functionality

    I have a Microsoft Surface tablet with a pen and I was wondering if it is possible to be able to draw with the pen and navigate the PDF with my fingers without having to change tools.

    Currently if I have the hand tool selected I can navigate the PDF with my fingers but the pen will also navigate the PDF instead of drawing. If I switch to the pencil tool I can draw with the pen but then if I use my fingers, they will draw lines instead of navigating the PDF.

    I am using Foxit v11.1.

    Normally, with the pencil tool selected, you are able to navigate the file to next page with fingers by clicking the buttons in the Status Bar(see attachment), so may I have more detailed descriptions of how you navigated the PDF?

      The majority of PDFs that I am viewing are technical drawings and diagrams which are high resolution and have fine details. When navigating I do a lot of zooming in and out as well as panning around on a single page. I do see the buttons that you are referring to for navigating to another page but for my usage this does not help.
