I have 2 urgent texts to get in for tomorrow, and have managed to lose my Word toolbars, crucial for editing, as I know and use very few keyboard commands.

It happened becuase I lost an EOS tag in a footnote. Trados was opening my footnotes in a separate document, and when editing I lost a tag. I therefore could not close the TW4Win text, which sort of transfers all toolbars from the main Word text to this supplementary page. So I saved it to desktop, closed the main text, and closed down hoping the problem would go away.

No go, I have even closed the memory but now all documents I open in Word are tollbar-less so I can't do a thing with ANY text. I have tried right-clicking to reselect the toolbars but to no avail.

I need a quick solution, at this stage the memory is not a priority. I just need my toolbars back, and urgently!

Shut the computer down Apr 4, 2004

have a cup of coffee and then restart! Whatever you have done will probalby correct itself by shutting down the pc - and the coffee might just help you too! I find that when the technology is going crazy sometimes you just have to give in, switch off and do something else so that your own brain calms down.
