While using MS Word and Trados, I pressed some keys accidentally, and all my Word menus disappeared - File, Edit, Trados, etc. Presumably there is some special command for giving you a clean screen. But how do you reverse it and restore those menus? All I have is the Cut & Paste menu. No option to restore to what it was - not even Help.
I am using Win XP Pro with MS Word 2000. I have tried deleting normal.dot but makes no difference. Any suggestions?

Brilliant! Many thanks, Jerzy. Nov 10, 2004

Problem solved ilnstantly. Now you mention it, I do recall reading about this problem, but I never thought it would happen to me. But now I remember - there was a funny footnote in the document. Again, many thanks, and it's back to the grindstone.
