Excuse me if this is the wrong place, I am dubious between this  
mailing list and the UI one. Sorry!

I am modifying a product, the heddex.tranquillity theme, trying to  
make the personal tool appear. I am a complete newbie, but I succeeded  
in modifying footers and other parts using TAL via the ZMI, but this  
is really beyond my (little!) knowledge. I have read how to hide  
personal tools, but I didn't find how to show it, if hidden somehow...  
I am surely missing something, I know!

This is the personaltool.pt file in /Plone/portal_view_customizations/ 
zope.interface.interface-personaltools.pt, but I don't know how to  
really read it. (it is unmodified, I didn't touch it, as you can see)

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any help is greatly
