line of similar length. It then removes the line and assumes the text was either
underlines or strike-through depending upon the position of the line relative to the
Occasionally this may yield undesirable results and can be disabled for this reason.
Include cropped text when editing
When editing begins, Foxit Advanced PDF Editor normally grabs all text on a
page and converts it into a form ready for interactive editing. When this option
is enabled, it will grab all text, even that hidden from view by a page crop. 周is is
useful for searching text that would otherwise be missed.
When disabled, you can use a page crop to limit the amount of text on a page
that Foxit Advanced PDF Editor will ‘see’. 周is is useful for narrowing the
eﬀect of a search and replace or for reducing unwanted layout changes at the
start of editing.
For example, doing a search and replace on a document’s page headers is diﬃcult if
the page header uses the same font and size text as the rest of the document. How
do you tell Foxit Advanced PDF Editor to only search in the header and ignore the
rest of the page contents?
周e answer is to disable this feature, place a crop around the header area using the
, then do the search and replace operation.
Foxit Advanced PDF Editor will not only limit the search to text within the crop,
it will also leave all other text completely unaltered. After the search has ﬁnished,
the crop can be removed by choosing
to reveal the
complete page text.

manipulated but no text editing can be performed whilst this option is enabled.
周e option is turned oﬀ each time Foxit Advanced PDF Editor is started.
