A while back Ray created, on the Quick Access Toolbar, a list of styles he commonly used. Later Ray deleted a few of the styles he no longer used. These styles were removed from the template and no longer appear anywhere, except on that list of styles on the Quick Access Toolbar. Ray wonders how he can remove these styles from the Quick Access Toolbar.
There are a couple of ways to remove things from the Quick Access Toolbar, and it doesn't matter if those "things" are styles or any other command you can place there. Perhaps the easiest way to do it is to just right-click on the QAT option and, from the resulting Context menu, choose the Remove from Quick Access Toolbar option. The option should immediately be removed.
