Confirming that Pathagoras is installed

   Word sometimes causes Pathagoras (and other add-ins) to stop working for no apparent reason.

   There are two classic indicators that Pathagoras has stopped running.

You don't see the Pathagoras tab. Pathagoras has 'disappeared.'

You see and error message that Pathagoras has failed to load.

Whether Pathagoras has  'disappeared' or is simply 'partially' running (you see the 'Pathagoras' tab, but you get one of the above error messages) it usually is a simple matter of reminding Word that Pathagoras really does exist.

   Here are the reconnect steps.)

1.Click the File tab (in Word2007, click the round button in the upper left corner of the page.

2.Click the Options button in the lower right quadrant of the File screen (its just called "Word Options" in Word 2007). You should see this screen:.
