I have just updated to Version 5.92m and now find that whenever I try to look at the new PB list of available commands, instead of retaining existing active commands (my own personalised ones that have always worked before), it erases them and when I right-click again they have still all disappeared!

This is extremely annoying and time-wasting! Has anybody found a way of keeping their PB commands in the same version of Wf Classic?

I am using Word 2007 in Windows XP.

a right click in WfC 5.92m Apr 21, 2011

I never used the said right click to hide/unhide commands, and tried it very now after reading your post. This command is not really necessary to be used for normal work and its usage and results are a bit awkward or unsteady. No need to use it, set it on unhidden.

It is better to see all the ones disabled with " _ " in between the strings, and all enabled ones, without the underscore.

If you take a good look into the readme file that now comes with WfC, you'll notice that for important modifications of setup, after its saving, an exit and re-enter into Word is indispensable. This applies for Word 2007 and further versions. So, please do not omit this operation. I do forget it as well, sometimes.

Do inform.

Thanks Dragomir Apr 21, 2011

Shutting Word immediately after resetting PB and reopening it has worked. I shall now avoid right-clicking and, as you suggest, leave all PB options visible.
