    Top header bar will have the account name for the company she needs to work on but she can not get to any of the accounts or records or reports.

    After entering my password on the Quickbooks login screen, my company name and Quickbooks 2005 shows at the top but is sort of grayed out and absolutely nothing can be accessed. I am not even able to minimize or exit. The only way to close it is through my windows task manager which says the program is running and that it is waiting for a response from me.

    Same as eljae...HELP!

    It appears fine until I click to open something and everything becomes "grey". Then when I try to click out and the only way is through ctrl.alt.delete, the message box says that it cannot close because it is waiting for a response from me. This happened all of a was fine the day prior.

    I have same problem described by 5 others in FixYa. QB2005 Pro loads up and i'm prompted for usn/pw but once entered i get a blank grey screen below the displayed pulldown menu bar and icon bar and any click produces a bell and the only way to close the QB app is to cntl-alt-del and end task.

    I've tried rebooting; that didn't work. Am looking hard for help to avoid trying a uninstall/reinstall.

    toggle on the
    toolbar is by checking the Show Command Buttons in the Configure
    [Company] Toolbar command (on the File menu).

    please make sure the user is logged on inside of quickbooks and not just to the computer. please let me know if this is not the problem.

Manual for Printmaster 2012 Platinum

You can access the manual within PrintMaster 2012. Once you open PrintMaster click "HELP" on the toolbar and select "User Guide". Provided you have Adobe loaded on your computer this should bring up a pdf version of the manual. Once it has opened you can choose to save the file to another location such as your desktop so it will be easier to find when you need it.

Hi there.
First off, ensure the developer tab is showing by going to the file (round pearl menu button in the top left corner) and selecting the button on the bottom of the menu called "Word Options". This will bring you up a screen as below >>>>>>>>


Now, ensure the developer toolbar is enabled with a tick as in the picture.
Go to the document and find the text that you can't modify
Ensure the developer toolbar is displayed and click in the document where the text is and then press the Group button in the toolbar and press the Ungroup option as below >>>>>


That is it - you should now be able to modify the text without any problems.

Thanks for using FixYa!!
