The Start-up solution worked, but I daresay the solution
would work, too. (But now that it's fixed, I don't want to test
everything.) Docking it to another toolbar was a good idea if I wanted
the real estate. But really, I make a PDF file about once every 6
months, so I just don't want to see it.

Thank you all! Now we have something for the Archives.

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, 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

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
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.
