IDE Properties/Description Missing

P: n/a
I've done something to lose the "Description" area for the Properties
window. There used to be a little section at the very bottom of the
Properties Window that would give a description of whatever attribute was
selected in the Properties Window. For example if you were looking at the
properties for the form and clicked in the StartPosition attribute it might
say something like "Determines where the form appears on screen at first
startup" in that little area. I don't know how it got turned off nor how to
turn it back on. I've looked through every menu and the Help file but can't
find anything.

I figured out that the bottom pane had grown so small you couldn't see it.
But it wouldn't let me resize it with the splitter either. It would turn to
the splitter cursor but immediately switch to the regular arrow/resize
cursor and only change the size of the whole window. Luckily I have Goback
(a great rollback utility I've used for years and wouldn't be without) to
rollback to when I lost it. But of course I lost a lot of other stuff during
the rollback. Does anyone know how to handle this when it won't let you use
the splitter bar because it's too close to the window's edge?
