You probably need to reset your preferences files. 

Simply delete or rename the 'autodessys' folder after closing FormZ.

On Windows it's located at C:/Users/(Username)/AppData/Roaming   (you will have to show hidden items and folders)

On Mac it's located at HOME: Library: Preferences

On relaunch FormZ will rebuild your preferences and reset everything to defaults.  As a word of advice, after you get your Workspace set the way you want it, and close FormZ.  The next time you open FormZ, make sure you disable 'Save Between Sessions' under the Workspaces Manager.  Doing this will help make sure you don't mess up your workspace again if FormZ crashes.

Great Thanks, ill try that.

One more thing though, at home i have created new tool palletes. how can i export them and import them into my workstation at the office ?

Would they be exported with the export/import workspace tool?

Yes, use the Manage Workspaces to export your saved custom workspaces and then use the saved file to import it on your other workstation.

Note that if you are using a different resolution screen on the two computers, your new custom bars and palettes will likely not fit correctly and you'll want to customize them again on the other workstation.
