How do you make the infobox reappear if it doesn't show up?

From Lawrence Wagner (lwagn2@dwp.ci.la.ca.us):


Using the keyboard:

1. Select File, Database Properties.
2. Hold down the ALT key and press the spacebar.
3. If a menu appears, select Move. If not, type the letter "m".
4. Use the arrow keys (i.e., the up arrow) on the keyboard to move the InfoBox back onto the screen. You should eventually see a dotted line in the form of a rectangle. Once you do, press ENTER. The InfoBox will reappear on the screen.


The NOTES.INI variable that is responsible for the position of the InfoBox on the screen is:


If you cannot find the InfoBox, modifying the values in the NOTES.INI to will also make it reappear. The values in this parameter refer to x, y coordinate locations. By changing these to numbers that fit within the pixel resolution (for example, 800x600), the InfoBox will reappear. Examples:

Win32InfoboxPos=441 79

Win32InfoboxPos=333 261
