    I use the format palette all the time. Somehow, it's disappeared now, and every time I use the correct instructions to get it back (view palette, etc) it doesn't come out. I see something flashing across the screen, almost as if it is hiding from me, but I can't get it back. Anyone ever go through this? Thanks.

    If you're talking about Mac Office, delete the Word plist.

    i have a similar problem regarding the formatting palette.

    When i open word:mac 2008 up it hides the "standard" tool bar, so every time i open it up i have to do thi procedure:

    view/toolbars/ check reviwing

    view/toolbars/ uncheck reviewing

    and then the standard tool bar will appear even though it was always checked in the first place...



    >>A Plist is a preference list here check this out:

    I tried the step and it didnt help me for my problem
