Thank you Thomas

Actually I am writing the code for the button in the ShowExpression code (I
mean "inside the cell"). I am using the command
Cell[GraphicsData["PostScript", DisplayString[(any graphic object)]],
"Graphics"], in another notebook to obtain the data of the graphic I want to
be displayed in the button...
The notebook I thought was "corrupted" yesterday, now is OK, after deleting
the data of the graphic I pretended to display (maybe the string was to
long...) ... But I still do not undestand why some of my notebooks,
sometimes inherite the WindowFloating condition...
