I finally brought them back. I right clicked in the body of the note and clicked "Style" and they suddenly reappeared. Not sure why they disappeared to begin with, but ok.
You know, the "Bold, Italic, Underline, Font, Size, Bulleted List, Number List, etc." buttons ... They are gone from my client interface? I cannot find a way to bring them back. EVERnooooote. What Have You done? *taps foot and looks at Evernote over his glasses*
