Elements 14: Toolbars Obscured by Expanded Window

  • Updated 2 years ago
As you can see in the attached image, my toolbar and above panel (for Quick, Guided, and Expert options) are improperly sized, resulting in my being unable to access several tools. I've rebooted my computer, restarted the program, tried resizing and editing with the View and Window tools, but nothing seems to be working. Any ideas would be helpful!

Hi Conner, 

Pro's only use Expert mode.   Let's reset your system.   You can reset in any of the modes.   Here's how.   Find the question mark on the lower-right but do not click on it.   Instead, on the right of that, is a set of note-lines.    If that's not there, select any tool to make it appear there.   Then hover over it and right-click.   In the short-cut menu that appears, select Reset.    That's it!    You're reset.   Sometimes your tools will retract upward, and downward without notice.   It just happens.   We live with it.    Resetting the program might help.   But, the tools work when reset.   

Happy computing!

Hi Steve,
Unfortunately that didn't seem to do anything. I got the options "Reset tool" and "Reset all tools," and I chose to reset all, to no avail.

Hi,
I've fixed the problem by going Window > Reset panels. Thanks for your help.
