File one: (local)
All formatting bar [On] in script enables the Aa button if the toolbar is showing. If it is not showing the text formatting bar appears.
It disappears when I execute All formatting bar [Off]
File two: (FMS hosted, fwiw)
This does not work. Both windows have the Standard menu set enabled, and I am in both with Full Access.
The View/Format Menu Item works but this script step has no effect (but it works in file one):
What am I missing?
Try hosting the file which is currently local, and see if the hosting is the real issue. I suspect there are additional differences to the files' setups, views, layouts, etc., but testing the now-local file via the same host should reveal whether it's hosting differences or file differences.
