How many times have you found yourself in need of a quick update to a PDF, but you’re away from your office desk? If this happens to you, you’re in luck. Foxit PDF reader Mobile brings the power of Foxit’s cutting-edge PDF technologies to your fingertips.

Open Your PDF

First, open Foxit PDF Reader Mobile and use the file browser to locate the document you want to modify. The file can be found on your smartphone, tablet, or Chromebook device, or the file can be located on cloud storage services such as Google Drive, iCloud, SharePoint, Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, and OneDrive Business.

Change the Content

To edit the content of your PDF, go to the “Edit” tab. Here you will find different options for editing:

  • You can edit text, objects, add voice, video, or link to the content.
  • You can link to content with a web link or to a page within the document.

Start editing text by clicking over the “Edit Text” tab, then tap over the text box you want to modify the text, next select “Edit,” and then start updating text.  When you finish, tap over the “Done” button.

Alter Layout

After editing text, you may need to make layout changes, or you want to improve the readability of your PDF. Foxit PDF Reader Mobile will allow you to move the “text boxes” to enhance the PDF’s layout. Just tap on the “text box” and hold-down to move the “text box” to a better location in the document.

Modify Appearance

You may need to make certain text bold or red in color to emphasize its importance. Select the paragraph you would like to modify by taping over it, click on “Select All,” and either change font style, font size, paragraph alignment (to the left, center, or right), or text color.

Change Images

Need to do a quick image update when you’re on the go? Maybe with a picture you just took on your smartphone. While you’re still on the “Edit” tab, tap over the image and select “Remove.” Then, click over the “Add Image” icon and choose the image you want to insert. Adjust the size and place it anywhere in the document. Sometimes the picture you insert from the gallery is upside-down; however, you can rotate it to the right or left by tapping over the image and selecting the “Rotate” function.

Making document modifications while you’re not near your office or WFH desktop is now quick and easy. Find Foxit PDF Reader Mobile on either your App Store or Google Play store.
