The new features include content translation – up to 2,000 characters can be translated with each prompt, with a limit of 50 free prompts per day. The same 50-prompt restriction applies to the Document Q&A feature, where users can "have a conversation with and answer user questions based on PDF content.
There’s also a Content Explanation feature for selected text, plus spelling and grammar correction tools powered by ChatGPT technology. Users also gain the ability to specify a writing tone such as professional or formal when rewriting content.
Note, AI-powered features require a free Foxit cloud account to function.
