Is This A Case Of A Corrupt Microsoft WORD App?

by h_blits / April 2, 2007 10:40 AM PDT

The "line style" pull down is missing from my Tables and Borders
Toolbar. I have tried unchecking the tool bar and reopening Word and
then rechecking it from the View, Toolbars drop down list. That did not
help.

By trial and error I found that if I uncheck the Formatting tool bar, a
tool bar appears that does have the line style drop down. But I cannot
figure out what the name of that toolbar is or how I can have the
Formatting toolbar and that toolbar both open at the same time.

Is that just a question of deleting it and then when WORD starts up again, the Normal.dot will be re-initiated automatically?

(NT) Yup. Just delete yours and it will be rebuilt.
