I managed to hide both the tool bar and the menu bar in my print composer (Mac version 1.8.0). To get the tool bar back I saw you need to click on the menu bar. What then when you also miss the menu bar?

enter image description here

Here what I see. I right-clicked everywhere. I can't get the the check-box has described here.

Right click on an empty part of the Print Composer menu bar. A small window should appear allowing you to check the boxes next to the items you want displayed.

Doesn't work. What do you mean by "empty part of the Print Composer menu bar". Is it where the print composer used to be? – Francesco Sep 10 '13 at 1:25
