That did it.

Didn't even need that ...

Yep - that's probably what I did - thanks.

No unfortunately I couldn't - about the only keyboard shortcut that worked 
reliably was ctrl-M to open the Message Box - which was enough.

Ctrl-M worked. In theory, you could do Alt-F - Alt-N to open a new 
mainstack, then use the tools palette (which was visible) to make the 
button. Unfortunately, for me at least, the keyboard shortcuts are very 
unreliable in 2.2.1 (I assume that's covered by bug 932, so didn't BZ it 

Thanks for all the suggestions ...
