I am running Office 2011 on 10.8.5.

A few weeks ago, when Word was open, I could right click on the dock, and it showed the "recent documents" field right there, so I could open recent documents from the dock (if Word was open -- not if it was closed).

Now, this "recent documents" is not available when I right click it. I don't think I have changed any settings, so I don't know how it disappeared and how to recover it.
