  1. Immediately open your Investigate Settings by clicking the Investigate Settings Dialog Launcher
  2. Click the Recovery button in the upper left-hand corner of the userform (you should then see your previous settings appear)

Does Your "Tickmark Tab" Keep Disappearing?

Due to a security update released by Microsoft in July 2016, add-in files you download from the internet are "blocked" by default. To unblock the file or create a "safe" folder location for your add-ins, please read my article to keep your add-ins showing in your PowerPoint Ribbon (it's a pain, but is fast and easy to do!).
