WordPerfect menus and the Property Bar (all recent versions)
This post was prompted by a search someone performed a couple of days ago that used the terms “restoring WordPerfect menus.”
You might not realize that WordPerfect comes with a variety of different menu sets — so that people can use menus from an older version of WordPerfect or from a recent version of Word — and that it is possible to change which menus are displayed merely by right-clicking somewhere within the menu bar. In fact, people sometimes manage to switch menus by accident, which can be rather disorienting.
To restore the menus you’re accustomed to seeing, right-click within the menu bar and click to select the one you normally use.
On a related note, clients sometimes ask (and we sometimes see posts on WordPerfect Universe asking) why the context-sensitive toolbar known as the Property Bar is no longer visible. As mentioned in a previous post, to display the Property Bar — and any of the myriad other toolbars that come with WordPerfect — click the View menu, Toolbars… and click to check the box next to the bars you want to show, then OK out of the dialog.
Remember to scroll all the way down to see the range of toolbars that are available to you. You might discover something that will be useful to you on a daily basis!
