Part of the problem is that the basic InputPalette has the optoin
Editable->False (but this begs the question of how the WindowSize
option for your palette got changed!).

Here's how to fix it


Evaluate

Notebooks[]

and figure out which one is your basicInputPalette.

Then execute

nb=Notebooks[][[inputpal]]

where inputpal is the location in the list of Notebooks[] where the
palette appears.

Then execute

SetOptions[nb, Editable->True,WindowSize -> {Fit, Fit}]

now execute

SetOptions[nb, Editable->False]


And not execute

Export[CurrentValue[nb,"NotebookFullFileName",nb,"NB"]

And the palette should be fixed (I hope!)On Sep 30, 4:01 am, Helen
