The first thing to do is to restart your computer. Then uninstall and re-install PerfectIt. This solves over 90% of all issues with PerfectIt. If you need to contact support, it's the first thing we'll ask you to do.
If you've tried restarting and re-installing, then check to see if PerfectIt is in the menu bar or toolbar (it should have its own menu and its own toolbar). If it is not in either one, please add PerfectIt manually. To do that, right-click on the toolbar and click on 'Customize' from the menu that appears. A dialog box will appear. This is shown below.
As pictured above, click the 'Commands' tab, then the 'Tools' label, then drag the label for COM add-ins to the toolbar. An icon for COM add-ins will be created in the toolbar. Click on that icon and see if PerfectIt is in the box called 'Add-ins available'. If it is there, make sure it is ticked.
If PerfectIt still does not appear, security settings may be set to disable it. Click on the 'Help' menu in MS Word. Click on 'About Microsoft Office Word'. In the lower right-hand corner, click on the 'Disabled items' button. If PerfectIt is in the list, then click on it and then click on 'Enable'.
