  • Bug Customization import/export issues

    Hello again

    I was in the process of migrating my toolbar customizations, when I realized that certain things don't work as expected.

    1) I cannot figure out how to save/restore the Quick Access Toolbar settings. Only the ribbon seems to have a import/export button, which does not include the QAT settings. The toolbar seems to be modeled after the MS Office ribbon where the Export feature saves all toolbar customizations including the QAT, so I was expecting similar functionality with the Foxit toolbar. After all, the QAT is meant to be the the user's own custom-created hotbar with the most frequently used tools, which in a way makes it the most important part of the toolbar (at least for me). I think it is essential for the user to be able to save and restore it just like the ribbon.

    2) When importing ribbon settings, custom groups are restored to the wrong position.

    Here are the steps to recreate the issue:

    2.1) In this example I've created two custom groups under the Home tab on the left side of the toolbar, each group containing a single button.

    2.2) I export the ribbon settings to a xml file

    2.3) I reset the ribbon customizations. The ribbon is back to default state.

    2.4) I press Import and select the xml file created above. (I have not yet pressed the OK button to confirm). The custom toolbar seems to be restored properly in this intermediate step, with the custom groups all the way to the left side.

    2.5) As soon as I press OK to confirm, something strange happens, and my custom groups are moved all the way to the right end of the toolbar.

    We apologize for any difficulty using Foxit Software.
    I'm able to replicate the issue and I have submitted it to our QA/Dev team as report id#QCPHANTOM-31053, I will forward the update when I have it.
