The buttons/icons for create new styles are gone. I can still use the drop down menu for these actions but I'm still wondering how I can make them appear again. Thanks for any info.
to clarify, I'm talking about the pop-out Paragraph Styles and Character Styles panels on the right-hand side of InDesign.
