Acrobat X not retaining Quicktools

Mac 10.6.8, Acrobat X 10.1.2


Why doesn't AcroX retain any Quick Tools that I've added to the menubar whenever I restart?

Beyond annoying.

    Good day,


    Sorry for the trouble you're having.


    Sounds like your Acrobat preference file isn't being written over properly.


    Try the following:

    1. Move the com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro.plist ( or .Standard.plist)file from Users\<username\Library\Preferences to your desktop
    2. Launch Acrobat X
    3. Configure your Quick Tools again
    4. Close Acrobat X
    5. Relaunch Acrobat X


    If your preferences now stick, it was your old prefs file and you can trash it.


    Let us know how it goes!


    Kind regards,

    David, I typed com.adobe.Standar.plist into my search box and nothing came up. I also cannot find it in my Library. Any ideas?
