Hi,
I use Foxit Reader to open my pdf's but am having a very annoying problem with it.

The problem always occurs when using the "marquee" tool to copy a section of a pdf to clipboard Whenever I drag the mousepointer over the area at normal speed, or if I make a sudden movement with it the Foxit program freezes up and also freezes my pc as well. The only way to get out of this pc freeze up then is to power off. I would like to use the marquee feature without having this issue.

Does anyone know of a fix for this problem please?

redx.

Thanks sherlock,

It was actually the latest version of foxit that was causing the crashes. I solved the problem by reverting back to an earlier version, so all is ok now.

Cheers,
redx
