    'Invisible' Controls (2003)

    When I create controls - eg Command Button - using the Control toolbox, the control is "invisible". When I release the mouse button, I just see four white handles around where the edge of the object would be. If I move away from the object, it disappears altogether. This problem also occurs when I open spreadsheets (created by other people) which contain Command Buttons. I cannot see the Command Buttons, although other people can. Command Buttons created using the Forms toolbar display correctly. Can anybody please explain to me why this is happening and how I can solve the problem? Thanks very much for your help.

    What is your view setting for Objects? (Tools, options, view tab)?

    If show all, maybe emptying all your temp files is needed. Do a system-wide search for files with this extension: .EXD. Delete them all. Make sure to search in hidden folders.
