    texjgc,

     

    It sounds as if someone has given you a UPTF version (Use Pen Tool First).

     

    Or, you may try the following (you may have tried/done some of them already) and see whether it helps:

     

    1) Close down Illy and open again;

    2) Restart the computer;

    3) Close down Illy and press Ctrl+Alt+Shift/Cmd+Option+Shift during startup (irreversible);

    4) Move the folder with Illy closed (reversible);

    5) Look through and try out the relevant among the Other options;

     

    Even more seriously, you may:

     

    6) Uninstall, run the Cleaner Tool if you have CS3/CS4/CS5/CS6, and reinstall.
