Re: Stamps Toolbar Icon

As mentioned in my previous post, the individual Add Go To Link icon does not work if I drag it by itself to a toolbar form the Commands in Customize Toolbars. I think that might be a different issue as that is just a plain icon with no drop down menu. If I use Reset Toolbar it removes all customiza...

Re: v7 UI is so BIG there is no work area

Here is where I have a 3rd row of icons become visible using an F7 shortcut key. At that point I have a lot of the features covered. Definitely anything I need to do no matter how infrequent. There is no 4th row.

Re: Replace Pages

The option I used allows the page to be replaced and for the link and bookmark to stay linked to it. This is what I wanted to have happen. The option you suggested does not seem to do that, not matter the settings below it. The settings below it refer to the source document I believe.
