    Custom toolbar glitch (2003)

    I built a custom toolbar that includes the highlighting tool. It works fine, except that the highlighting tool won't let me change the color. I have to reactivate the Formatting toolbar to change the color. What's the problem?

    Does the highlight button on your custom toolbar look the same as the one on the Formatting toolbar, i.e. with a little dropdown arrow on the right hand side? What does the tooltip say if you hover the mouse over the button?

    It looks exactly like the one on the Formatting toolbar. When I hover the mouse pointer over it, the tooltip reads, "Highlight: Pink."

    What happens if you click the little dropdown arrow to the right of the marker pen icon? Does the color palette drop down? If so, is it disabled (grayed out) or enabled? If enabled, what happens if you click on a color?

    That's exactly the problem: Nothing's grayed out, but when I "click the little dropdown arrow to the right of the marker pen icon," nothing happens. The color palette does not open.

    Just now I deleted the highlighting icon from my custom toolbar. Then I moved (not copied) the highlighting icon from the formatting toolbar to my custom toolbar. Guess what: It works now! Hm-m-m.... <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>
