Normal. dot and Changing Toolbars

Post by Jason Saff » Wed, 22 Dec 2004 17:16:53

Hi all,

I want to have Word show the Outlining toolbar each time I run Word. I know
how to customize it so that the Outlining toolbar shows up when I'm in a
Word screen. But I can't figure out how to save it so that it shows up the
same way (with the outlining toolbar) the next time I run Word (I'm using
Word 2002).

I thought that my adding the toolbar would automatically save the setting in But I must be missing something here.

Can folks help me out with this? Thanks very much.

Hi Jason,

I suspect that Word checks the VIEW its opening in and, if it's not the Outline
view, it hides the toolbar. You may have noticed that Word displays that
toolbar automatically when you enter Outline view, and hides it when you move
to another view. It does this even if you've displayed that toolbar manually
while in another view.

Best I can think of would be a macro that will make sure the toolbar is
displayed. If you name the macro AutoExec, it will execute when you start Word.
For example:

Sub AutoExec()
Commandbars("Outlining").Visible = True
End Sub
