Zettlr tries to wirite in %userprofile%\OneDrive\Documents

Submitted by Der777 on October 6, 2022 - 10:43am

I have enebled the windows feature 'controlled folder access' (In ransomware security) which denies write access to most destinations until I whitelist the app or the folder. When I start zettlr portable, it tries to write something to %userprofile%\OneDrive\Dokumente which is denied by windows and the zettlr app is aborting its own startup.

I believe zettlr portable MUST NOT write anything to my systems documents folder automatically. It should stay on its installation medium

Author of zettlr said, he is not responsible for the portable apps integration:

[Fixed] Fill and Sign not available in Foxit Reader 11.2

Submitted by dsl101 on April 29, 2022 - 6:06am

It seems that Foxit merged Ink Signing and their eSign service. I can understand why eSign would not be available in the PA, as it requires a local service to run. But without the UI for it, it doesn't seem possible to switch to Ink Sign.

The full app appears to use the following Reg entry to control which version of signing is active:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Foxit Software\Foxit PDF Reader 11.0\plugins\FoxitSign]

Could you recommend a good note taking app (like Obsidian)?

Submitted by gaveitatry on March 6, 2022 - 4:18pm

Today, a friend from Denmark told me about Obsidian. But because I wanted a portable app, I first tried something called Joplin. I didn't know Joplin supported HTML like , and I was frustrated that I couldn't make additional line breaks, so I switched back to Obsidian. I learned Obsidian allows HTML. Then I spent a few hours trying to make Obsidian portable. I made it portable using a .bat launch file that someone had created. But I couldn't really pin the .bat launch file to the taskbar. I mean, I could.

[Fixed] QOwnNotes will not install

Submitted by Swwright on January 10, 2022 - 7:41pm

Updater says an update for QOwnNotes is available. Updater says new version is 22.1.2.

Updater downloaded a 27,484kB file, then downloaded (another?) file of the same size, then issued this alert: "The downloaded copy of QOwnNotes is not valid and can not be installed. This could be due to an incomplete download or other network issue. Please try running the updater again when complete."

Identical results on two different PCs in two different locations.

Will PDF-XChange Editor still be portable after registration?

Submitted by WirlyWirly on November 21, 2021 - 9:02pm


Like the title says, I'm looking at purchasing a license for PDF-XChange Editor, but I'm curious if registering it will do something to no longer make it fully portable. I'm assuming not, but just wanted to double check to make sure.

Thanks in advance!
