Hello everyone,

I just noticed that my Pandora's box is absolutely empty. The only thing that happens, when I open it, is that a Word page appears, containing one line, which is: Edit commands as needed. Remove the underscore _ from commands to make them active.

After that the page is empty and there is no second page.

What can I do?

I ahve already re-loaded Wordfast, because I ran into trouble cleaning the document - thank God, that feature works, but now...

Any help is appreciated!

Command button Oct 8, 2007

Don't you have a check box to "enable pb" and a button that says Commands ?

No check box, no tabs Oct 8, 2007

Well, it seems this is part of my problem, I just have this command bar at the left side of the screen. There I find three commands for pandora's box, edit enable and reset to default. But even though, there should be some contents, I think.

Anyway, how do you open the menu to get to pandora's box?

Thank you for you interest!

Which version Oct 8, 2007

Normally you click on the f-icon, select Setup and PB and then you have a command field and a button for adding commands.
Cheers
Heinrich

No f icon Oct 8, 2007

Hi heirich - that's just it, my last button on the tool bar is the TM editor, there is no f icon on the tool bar at all. Instead there are 4 grey buttons, leading me directly to the subject - roughly like the tabs in the menu (which I see in the manuals).

I'm using a very new iMac with Word 2004 and Wordfast 5.52b, if that is any help.

Thank you for responding.
