What is reflow editing mode and its advantages?
Reflow editing mode is a new text editing mode we added in since V9.2 of Foxit PhantomPDF Business.We have rebranded 'Foxit PhantomPDF Business' into 'Foxit PDF Editor Pro' since version 11. The reflow editing feature provides a fluent text editing experience is very similar to editing texts in MS word application. The commands Edit Text and Edit Object can only allow you to edit text in one text block in one page. To edit text in a continuous mode like Word, you can use the Reflow Editing command. When you are in reflow editing mode, text will reflow automatically in pages in the document as you add or edit text content.
