Disappearing Formula Workshop

I am a light user of Crystal Reports and recently when I click on the Formula Workshop button, it pop up somewhere but I cannot see it, so where does it go? How do I fix this? Thanks.

    Not sure if this will work with your version or if this will help ( I am on CRXI )

    try any or all of the key combinations listed below, they will toggle the function or feature listed to the right

    Alt + F = "Field Tree"

    Alt + U = "Function"

    Alt + P = "Operator"

    Alt + R = "Find Results"

    Alt + X = "Use Expert"

      You can try this, but no promises. First, reboot the machine, and shutdown as many other things, other than Crystal that you can. Start up CR, and size the program to about a third of the screen. Create a new formula, hopefully you will see the formula workshop pop up, you may need to move the cr window around. By the way, what version of CR is this? And what patch level are you on? When I go to formula workshop, it always pops up, on top, and I must close it to get rid of it.

    Also, CR doesn't work well with dual monitors, make sure you are using the main monitor when using CR, the pop up may be on the other screen which you can't see...
