I can't find the Formatting Palette

Cause: The Formatting Palette, which was in the Toolbox in earlier versions, is not available in Microsoft Office for Mac 2011.

Solution:    Find commands on the ribbon.

The ribbon can help you quickly find the commands that you have to have to complete a task. Commands are organized in logical groups that are collected together under tabs.

  • If you do not see the ribbon groups, on the right side of the ribbon, click Expand the ribbon button .
