Addendum re: the View menu in WordPerfect (recent versions)
Someone used a search term earlier today that had to do with the Property Bar disappearing in WordPerfect. In the prior post about the View menu, I didn’t mention that the toolbars — including the Property Bar — are enabled and disabled via the View menu. (View, Toolbars… click the appropriate checkbox to display the Property Bar or, for that matter, any of the other toolbars.) It’s pretty simple, and certainly logical, once you know about it. But not everyone realizes where to look.
If you get a chance, open the View Toolbars dialog and scroll down to see which other toolbars are available to you. There’s some pretty nifty stuff below the standard WP toolbars, including a couple of bars that emulate the ones in Word 97 and Word 2002, a legal-specific toolbar (with icons that help you perform tasks such as generating pleading paper, working with a Table of Contents and/or a Table of Authorities, and inserting automatic numbering), plus toolbars to help you with outlines, graphics, print preview, and tables. There’s even one that allows you easy access to the shipping macros — a few useful macros that come with the program.
It’s definitely worth exploring when you have a few minutes.
