Lorraine Kiewiet reports: <<Every time I start Word, I get the darned
PDFMaker 5.0 toolbar (two buttons). Since real estate is at such a premium
(especially here in southern California) I do not want extra toolbars on my
screen. How can I turn off this feature as the default behavior on document
start-up? When I deselect it in Word's Customize dialog box, the next
document I open gets the PDFMaker toolbar anyway.>>

A few possibilities:

First, if you're opening the same template every time you start Word
(usually Normal.dot), then you'll see the toolbar for as long as it's part
of that template. Delete it from the template and it should be gone forever.

Second, if the toolbar has been added to any template but defined as being
"available in all documents", you'll need to track down where it's stored
(usually in another template) and kill it off in that template.

Third, explore the following possibilities (text copied from Word's online
help): "Add-ins and templates that you load by using the Templates and
Add-Ins command on the Tools menu are unloaded when you close Word. To load
an add-in or template each time you start Word, copy the add-in or template
to the Startup folder, whose location is specified on the File Locations tab
(Tools menu, Options command)." Check these options to see if this is how
the toolbar is being loaded.
