Under certain circumstances it's possible that XMetaL Menus and Toolbars disappear after a *.dita, *.xml or *.sgm file is loaded into the editor.
If this has occurred, please try the following easy workaround:
- Hold the Ctrl key down and launch XMetaL. Make sure that you are holding down the Ctrl key until you see the following dialog popup asking if you want to reset the workspace state:
- Click 'Yes'. This will restore the UI to its original state.
