    Yeah, I think you're right.

    Foxit on Kubuntu

    WPS Office Free lately, it has literally zero functionality, so almost zero exploitability. If I ever need to work with PDF, I can always use a portable PDF reader.

    Is there a reason you prefer Foxit over Okular?

    Basic editing and can easily import signature image. In short, bit more to it than Okular.

    Thanks, Iangh.
    Okular offers several annotation options, including Typewriter, but I suppose you mean Foxit has some more advanced editing option. I couldn't find the information about what the Foxit Reader options in Linux were, exactly.
    And I don't know about importing signature image. Nice to know that Foxit offers such option.
    It's been a very long time since I used Foxit in Windows, since then I've been using PDF-XChange Viewer and later Editor. In Kubuntu, I plan to use Okular, but it's good to know of Foxit options. Thanks again.

    I still have Okular installed just in case there is a problem with Foxit. The one thing I really like, and forgot to say, about Foxit is tabbed pdfs - so much easier to view an open pdf by clicking a tab.

    Tabbed view can be very handy.

    I gave up and switched to using a browser. Adobe just has too many security issues.
