Quick Access Toolbar Customization

Recommended Posts


I keep customizing the Quick Access Toolbar in Nitro Pro (as I do in all my office apps).  HOWEVER, Nitro seems to reset back to the default buttons on the toolbar upon reboot.  WHY?

Hello @-mosjef-,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

Please note we're investigating this issue internally with our product team and we'll provide an update once it is available.

As a work-around, kindly reconfigure your QAT shortcuts and below information will help you with re-importing them when the problem happens in the future.

1. Open Registry through Run > regedit.
2. Make sure to save a backup before making any change by referring to this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/322756/how-to-back-up-and-restore-the-registry-in-windows

3. The location were QAT shortcuts are saved in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Nitro\Pro\X.0\Settings\QAT where X is the version of your Nitro Pro. You'll see all the buttons you've added to the Quick Access Toolbar there.
4. To export this, right-click on the QAT folder, and choose Export. Give it a name, make sure that Selected Branch is selected, and save it to your Desktop for ease of access.
5. If the QAT shortcuts reverted to default, double-click on the registry backup on your Desktop, and choose Yes. It will replace whatever is there with the values from the file. Make sure Nitro is closed when you do this.
6. Re-open Nitro Pro to test your QAT shortcuts.

Thanks for choosing Nitro Pro and I hope this helps!
