What happened to the Mini toolbar?
The Mini toolbar disappears if you
do not use it. These steps used the
Font Size box arrow on the Home
tab instead of the Font Size box
arrow on the Mini toolbar. If a
command exists both on the currently
displayed tab and the Mini toolbar,
this topic uses the command on the
tab. When the command is not on
the currently displayed tab, the Mini
toolbar is used.
