    quick access show bookmarks (2007)

    I want to add a button to the Quick Access bar to show/hide bookmarks. I can show them via Word Options, Advanced, Show document content, Show bookmarks but can't seem to find this in the Customize section. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Well, I got what I wanted with a one line macro:

    Sub ShowHideBookmarks
    ActiveWindow.View.ShowBookmarks = Not ActiveWindow.View.ShowBookmarks
    End Sub

    ...but now I want to edit the QAT button face, and it seems like I'm restricted to the built-in images only - or am I missing something?

    Without using RibbonX I think you are restricted on the QAT to just the built-ins. Certainly this thread on eggheadcafe by Word MVP Graham Mayor notes "... however you cannot add to the list of available QAT button faces"

    However, you may be able to add a custom button if you go through the pain of RibbonX. There are clues on this page http://www.rondebruin.nl/ribbon.htm that show you can use RibbonX in the QAT so I would be surprised if it was not possible. Note that although that links context is Excel, the same principles apply to Word.

    thanks very much Andrew. I am trying to learn about RibbonX but I think, for the moment, I will make do with the standard button faces on offer; life is too short :-) Thanks again, RF
