Foxit PDF editor suite expands AI capabilities for 2024

Smart PDF commands and enhanced AI assistant functionality are set to give the desktop and cloud versions of Foxit PDF Editor Suite a big boost for 2024, the company said.

Phil Lee, chief commercial officer at Foxit, said in the related announcement that innovative AI solutions can increase productivity and efficiency – enabling customers to do more with their documents.

“Incorporating these new capabilities into Foxit PDF Editor Suite further cements the company as a pioneer in seamlessly merging AI technology with PDF editing solutions,” Lee said.

The vendor said that its expanded ChatGPT-based AI Assistant functionality included a bigger focus on automated summarisation of documents or sections within those documents.

Foxit’s new PDF editing suite also promised faster information retrieval and prompt-based content search, an AI chat interface for users, and an ability to better define and clarify information presented in documents.

Users could use the software to get instant explanations and definitions for terms or sentences within their documents, it said.

With Smart Commands for PDF, users can more easily streamline document processing workflows with some 80 pre-defined actions, including an ability to create and edit PDFs from images, text or web and from combinations of files, it added.

“Foxit PDF Editor Suite users can easily type in PDF commands to efficiently accomplish tasks like page navigation, document orientation and page extraction,” the vendor said.

That’s on top of familiar gen-AI content creation abilities such as native paraphrasing and text creation, the ability to check spelling or grammar, and translation into different languages.

With PDFs being platform independent and widely used, added AI tooling might prove useful for many organisations looking to speed up and improve document management, the vendor noted in a blog.

“Extracting conclusions can be overwhelming, especially if you’re handling large volumes of PDFs,” it said. “Advancements in AI have laid the groundwork for much greater efficiency.”

AI tools can leverage natural language processing (NLP) to automate data analysis, clarifying meaning and context of processed data, even potentially determining intent in language or assisting sentiment analyses.

Machine learning (ML) algorithms can also extract data such as dates, names, or contact information and categorise it according to training directives or predefined criteria, while optical character recognition ensures data and information such as text embedded in images or PDFs can be converted into text that can be edited and searched, Foxit pointed out.
