Reply to: Menu Bar Disappeared

I have the same exact issue as user gclem, above. Word for word, exactly. I don't know if I am using “SDL”, but we do use a custom-developed toolbar with commands for interacting with our in-house publishing database. I am using XMetaL Author Essential 9.0, so I think the known issue from version 8 still exists in version 9.

To get the menu bar back, I reset the workspace by holding Ctrl when starting XMetaL (solution found here: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php/topic,19.0.html). I've decided simply not to customize the toolbars from now on. Mostly, I'll just hide them and use the menu and keyboard shortcuts instead.
