    Hello again.

    My day in history widget has become invisible when I open up the dashboard.. Invisible but not gone because when I click in the icon in the list at the bottom of the page it sort of semi appears on the page but disappears with an effect like ripples in a pond (,which is in it's self a fantastic effect) The cross is still there in the top right corner though.

    Any ideas as to what I have cocked up now?:D

    Thanks

    An example (I don't have that widget):

    /Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/widget-com.apple.widget.calendar.plist

    Find its plist file and drag it to the Desktop.
    Restart? (not sure that's necessary)
    Try the widget. This should make a new default plist file.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried your suggestion but I couldn't get it to work.

    It could be keyboard/cushion interface problems though rather than your suggestion.

    Thanks anyway.

    Rory.
