[Fixed] Foxit Reader Portable does not store created Signature

Beware if you create a signature in Foxit Reader Portable (9.1.0.5096), the signature file will be temporary created and stored in the host computer until the app closes. Signature file path: %AppData%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\InstaSign\UserSign\

The entire %AppData%\Foxit Software folder will disappear after closing Foxit Reader Portable. Signature is not transfer to the location of the PortableApp and will not be available on re-opening the portable app.

Try This

Open up the FoxitReaderPortable.ini file within the FoxitReaderPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher directory. Replace the existing [DirectoriesMove] and [DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty] sections with:

[DirectoriesMove]
SpellCheck=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Foxit PhantomPDF\SpellCheck
UserSign=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\InstaSign\UserSign
-=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Addon
-=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\cacheData
-=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\RMS
-=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\CertFile
-=%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Foxit Software
-=%Public%\Foxit Software

[DirectoriesCleanupIfEmpty]
1=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\InstaSign
2=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader
3=%APPDATA%\Foxit Software

This should preserve it as you move between computers. This may leave some things behind in %APPDATA%\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader as I haven't yet tested it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Signature is saved

Thanks. It works. Signature is saved to D:\PortableApps\FoxitReaderPortable\Data\UserSign

Left behind in the host computer are:
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->cws.connectedpdf.com->Lang
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->cws.connectedpdf.com->UserImage
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->StartPage 9.1.0->advertisement->ad->..bmp and png files..
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->StartPage 9.1.0->advertisement->http
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->StartPage 9.1.0->advertisement->ad.db
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->StartPage 9.1.0->advertisement->ad.zip
%AppData%->Foxit Reader->StartPage 9.1.0->start->en-US->..folders.and.files..

Fixed in 9.2.0.9297

This is fixed in Foxit Reader Portable 9.2.0.9297. A modified version of the above was used to clean up the additional entries left by the newer releases.
