I have just updated wordfast this morning 08/12.

I no longer get a fixed wordfast menu but just a scrolldown vertical menu that keeps disappearing.

This question came up 2 months ago and the answer was to untick a box in the set-up view menu called "automatically shrink the wordfast toolbar".

However in the version I have just downloaded there is no such box in the set-up view menu

I would be very grateful for a rapid solution

Similar problem Dec 10, 2010

I had/have similar problem, and I also have Word 2007.

Did you try combination Ctrl + Alt + W ? That should restore the menu, I think.

No this doesn't work Dec 10, 2010

The combination Ctrl + Alt + W just displays the WF setup box.
I want to see all the commands like "open next segment" etc. These just keep disappearing and I don't get them in a fixed horizontal bar

No fixed horizontal Wordfast menu in word 2007 Dec 10, 2010

I installed Office 2010 and the WF toolbar is NOT displayed automatically.
I must go to Add-ins and that way is displayed but VERTICALLY on the left side.... I don't like this, so in my main PC I am still working with Word 2003 that keeps things as they have always been.
