What works

  • Install Foxit via .exe and .zip file
  • Setting FoxIt as default handler for PDFs
  • Opening/Saving PDFs
  • Set Bookmarks
  • Edit PDFs (with the PRO version)

What does not

The find/search field for searching the PDF is not correctly displayed. If comctl32 is installed via winetricks, the search field is displayed correctly but FoxIt sometimes crashes when opening files (switching folders in the opening dialog results after a time into a crash) => Also notice the messed up icons in the open-file dialog. Without comctl32 that is not the case, but then you can not see the search field. => Note that is still possible to search via Strg-F, even if you can not see what you are entering in the "invisible" search field

Search throug Strg+Shift+F works, but you can not access (click) the results. So that really useful searchtool is useless :-(

 ==> Because of the search issues above the rating cannot be better than BRONZE. Sorry, but for such a good program which you can use several times a day, the above issues are really limiting the handling.

When editing a PDF file, you can't see the different styles when changing the style of a drawn line (dotted line, full line, ...). Changing the style is still possible after installing gdiplus via winetricks.


What was not tested

...hmm, hard to say. I use this tool every day (set it as default pdf handler). So I tested nearly everything.
