Hello everyone,

I have a bit of a mystery here so I hope someone out there can help me solve it.

I have Trados 2009 and I am currently working on a relatively plain xls file. The text contains a lot of {0} and {1} (in text, not in tags) and I need them in the target xls like that as well. Therefore, I decided to put them on QuickInsert buttons. I typed them in under QuickInsert > Microsoft Excel 2000-2003 and checked the box "display in toolbar". Unfortunately however my QuickInsert toolbar does longer contain any customized buttons.
All the regular ones (b, i, tm, etc.) are there and I also checked View>Toolbar>QuickInsert. There is also the button for the "Insert Tag dialog box". When I open it, there is the list including {0} and {1} and I can insert them. This is however rather cumbersome. Therefore my question, does anyone have an idea how I can get back my 10 customized buttons? Plus, is there any way to put them on shortcuts?

I really appreciate your help!
Thanks a lot
