Removing or allowing permissions

The permissions page should appear first time you try to use the Read&Write for Google Chrome  web and Google Docs toolbars.

If the purple puzzle piece icon to the right of the Chrome Omnibox address bar is not appearing, greyed out or you don’t see the purple puzzle piece tab when you open a Google Doc, it’s likely that the permissions page was canceled, closed, or not accepted.
