You can see the properties in the Paragraph Designer. FrameMaker remembers the Paragraph Designer's last position. Perhaps it got moved to a position that is no longer visible on-screen. For example, changing your monitor to a lower resolution could cause the old position to now be in a place that is off-screen and invisible. To fix it, close FrameMaker and open maker.ini for editing. Look under "[DialogLayout]" for a Pformat entry. Change it to something like "Pformat=50, 50" to reposition the Paragraph Designer to a spot you can see. Then, when you reload FrameMaker and your document, you will be able to use Control-m to open and see the Paragraph Designer again, and move it to where you want. Mike Wickham
