  • Bug Toolbars dont save positions properly

    1) I have a couple of UI bugs to report. For my toolbars, I have a few open. One of the ones that is open is the drawing toolbar. I would like this toolbar to be in the middle of the screen, but every time I try to rearrange the toolbars it gets reset back to the right when I close and reopen the program. The drawing toolbar is the only one that does this. I can change the order of any other toolbar.
    In fact, sometimes when I move a toolbar (not necessarily the drawing toolar), it changes position the next time I open Foxit. Clearly there are problems with saving toolbar positions.

    2) The next bug is with the drawing toolbar. If it the toolbar farthest to the right, then some of its buttons can get hidden. Thats how it should behave. The problem is that when I choose the dropdown to choose one of those hidden buttons, the pencil option is grayed out. It cannot be selected.

    3) Finally, when I use the Firefox plugin, sometimes I cannot use the Save As.. button. I think the pattern is that after I do the first edit (add a textbox, draw with the pencil, etc.) then I cannot save it at that point. This is quite annoying because if I open some notes online, they open in the browser, and I have to save the file and reopen it before I can add to them.

    Foxit is the best alternative to Adobe, but you guys seriously need to fix the UI. The UI is the first thing users see, and there are a LOT of bugs in it. You guys could easily be the best if you just worked out the bugs.
    Let me know if you need any more information about these bugs.

      I am on version Check for Updates doesnt offer a newer version, nor does the download link on your homepage. The download is called FoxitReader543.0920, so im assuming its version 5.4.3. Seems like 5.4.4 is not quite released yet.
