I had a very large Word file (ca. 500 pages) with operations involving footnotes - at some point, the Trados and Multiterm toolbars disappeared, never to return again. I think it happened when I came back from a footnote (in fact, all of the toolbars in Word temporarily disappeared).

I was able to continue my work because the Trados menu item at the very top (in the line with "File", "Edit" etc.) and the "Flagman" button were still there.

I deleted all instances of the file and then reinstalled a fresh version, I deleted etc. - there are still no
Trados toolbars to be found anywhere in Word where I could install them.

I have Word 2003 (German version), SDL Trados Freelance 2006 and Windows XP.

Any fresh ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I had exactly the same problem with yours. Finally I solved it. I googled "trados toolbar missing" or something like that and was directed to this forum.
The proper solution is to run a vbscript in Word. This will enable the toolbar. good luck!

Trados KB article 762 May 3, 2006

Hi Michael,
This has indeed been discussed in this forum on several occasions.

Have a look at Article 762 from the Trados KB. (Be careful when making changes to the Registry!)

A description of how to handle footnotes is in the Trados File Formats Reference Guide. Alternatively, you may want to use TagEditor.

HTH, Ralf
