Edit: this is not really a Sage math question. But one of the answers is useful, so let's not delete the question.

Hope someone can help. From one day to the other all my drop down menus in Sage are empty. Not sure what happened there but is there a filter that I have clicked my mistake or is there a way to restore it?

Do you mean menus in the notebook, or in the Mac OS app?

Or do you mean the business software Sage? This is for the mathematics software - see

Sorry, I should have mentioned that yesterday - I am using the business software - Sage Instant Accounts Plus.

Oh, this not a forum for the business software.

@niles: I know it's kind of obvious by looking at the questions, but maybe the about page ( should be completed to make it completely clear what this site is about. The FAQ ( also doesn't mention that this is about the mathematics software sage (

If you are using the Sage notebook and you hit the button at the top of the notebook page labeled "Toggle" the browser will hide the drop down menus, the ones that read "File", "Action", "Data", etc..

I often use this when projecting a Sage notebook session using a lecture room projector because the screen space is greatly reduced on most low-res projectors.
