Problem report

FlexiPDF can check for two types of errors in your edited PDFs:

A.Overset text: If there is too much text in a text box (Text overflow) and the overflowing text is no longer displayed.
B.Auto-fit Size Change: If automatic text fitting has been applied to a text box (Text fitting automatically) and the text has been resized by more than 10%.

FlexiPDF always checks for problem A when you save the PDF. Otherwise, you can use the ribbon command Document | group Extras | Problem report icon_problem_report at any time to perform checks.

Solving problems that were identified in the problem report

To resolve problems, double-click on the relevant item (or click on View) and then do the following:

1.Resize the relevant text box to create more space for the text.
2.Edit the text to change its length.
3.Click on Auto Fix to automatically fit the text. This slightly adjusts its size to fit it in the text box. If this function is not available, it means that the automatic fitting has already been performed. In this case, click on Text fitting.
4.The Text fitting button enables you to change the automatic Text fitting settings so that they match the text better.
