PDF Review

About PDF Review

Foxit Reader supports two kinds of PDF review: shared review and email review. With Foxit Reader (V4.0 or later), you can easily join a PDF view, share the comments, and track reviews. In a shared review, you can make comments, share and track reviews via a server. While in an email review, you can make comments and send the reviewed PDF back to the initiator as an email attachment.

Join a Shared Review

Join an Email Review

The recipients can download the document sent from the initiator and open it with Foxit Reader, add their comments and click Send Comments button in the message bar to send their comments back to the initiator.

Likewise, you can manage your reviews by using the Tracker. See also Review Tracker.

Review Tracker

Foxit Reader provides a tracker to help you track reviews easily. Choose Share > Tracker, and then you can view the file name, deadline, number of comments, and the list of reviewers for the shared reviews or email reviews you have joined.
