Foxit PDF Creator 3.0 User Manual
Many PostScript-driver based PDF creation tools create PDFs without character
encoding information. Therefore it's impossible to do a search in the resulted
PDFs. Even though you can look at all those characters, you can't search them.
Foxit PDF Creator retains all character encoding information, so you can search
it, extract it, and convert back to pure text document.
Display and process efficiency
Many PDF creation tools break text contents into individual characters, causing
some performance issues for displaying and processing. Foxit PDF Creator
groups texts with similar "display attributes" together, which improving
performance when the PDF gets displayed or processed.
Many PDF creation tools require all or many fonts to be embedded with the PDF
file, resulting in bigger file size for the PDF. Foxit PDF Creator can reduce the file
size for many documents.
Many PDF creation tools adopt a two phase creation procedure: first print to
PostScript language, then convert to PDF, not only it will often lose some
information during the process, but it also takes more time. Foxit PDF Creator
directly creates PDFs from any printable application, fastest among all current
PDF creation tools.
Many PDF creation tools can’t handle complicated Windows drawing features
like transparency, and the generated PDFs are not identical to the original
documents. Foxit PDF Creator processes all Windows drawing functions so your
PDF is always same as your original document.
As developer of popular Foxit Reader, Foxit Software knows PDF standard very
well. This ensures PDFs created by Foxit PDF Creator will have the best result in
any standard PDF reader.
