This may sound strange, but I've some how lost the bottom half of my properties panel. This is annoying because i use the W H X Y boxes all the time. I can still see the top half of the panel and i can for example set the colours of a rectangle i just drew but i cant postiion it becaause the W H X Y boxes are missing. I've made the panel higher and there is just an empty space where the boxes should be. See http://www.puseyuk.co.uk/temp/flash.JPG

How do i get it back?

Hi there. This happens sometimes to me too.
Best way to get it back, right click to close it and open the panel again, that usually does the trick.

Click the black arrow in the bottom right corner of the Property Panel.

Have you tried dragging the toolbar from its "docked" position (drag using the top-left bit of the panel)
... or patching Flash to 7.2?

when all else fails, reboot.

i suspect its not a flash problem but rather something related to ram issues.

ps. it happened to be this morning - and i just closed it and reopened it - was cool.

sorry then
