Hi guys,

Yet another problem. I use Wordfast Classic and have it installed on Word 2007. Goodness only knows what I've done but now my toolbar Wordfast icon (the thing shaped like a little circle of dots) will not expand into the Wordfast toolbar. I can get the old green toolbar if I go into the add-on tab in Word but I really don't find this as handy as the other version.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Sometimes... Mar 2, 2012

... it also happens with me.

I do Alt + down arrow, wait a few seconds and ... it opens!

Hope this helps!

ALT + down arrow does not expand toolbar Mar 2, 2012

Hi Ligia,

Many thanks for trying to help. Unfortunately, ALT + down arrow does not expand the Wordfast icon in the Word Quick Access Toolbar in my case.

Here are a couple of things you may want to try:

1. Reset your customizations in Word options > Customize
2. Upgrade to version 6.02: version 6.01, which I assume you are using, although you didn't state it explicitely, has some issues with the Quick Access Toolbar in Word 2010, so maybe it has issues in 2007 as well; these issues are fixed in 6.02 (which is a beta version at the time of this writing).

Also note it is perfectly possible to use Wordfast Classic without seeing any toolbar at all, since all functions on the toolbar can be accessed via keyboard shortcuts. Once they have gained some experience, users should know all commonly used functions (Alt+Down, Ctrl+Alt+C, Ctrl+Alt+W etc.) by heart.
