Hello,

When I had Illustrator open, I moved my Mac's view to the widgets desktop. When I went back to the desktop that had Illustrator, the tools panel and other panels were missing. I went back to the widgets desktop and the panels were there!

I could not figure out how to get them back over to the correct desktop, so I closed them. Now, back in Illustrator, I can't figure out how to open them up again.

I'd like to go back to the default setting. Please help!

Thanks and God bless,

Scott Miller

That was the correct answer in 2012!

If you go digging up old threads, please get informed about how things were working in 2012.
