2. Hover the cursor over any icon and Right Click to expose the context menu.
3. Select the Maximize the Ribbon line.
Method 2: To restore it to always display the icons:
In the upper Right hand corner of BC Framer there will be a set of Icons
The lower left-most icon in that group will be the either a caret or inverted caret symbol ( ^ or v) which toggles the feature on or off.
If the icon shows is an inverted caret (v) then the ribbons will be hidden unless hovered over.
If the Icon shows a normal caret (^) then the Ribbons will display at all times.
Click on the icon to change it from hidden to always visible.
