    Macros in 2007 spontaneously disabled (2007)

    I have a user that will be working along, dum de dum de dah... and suddenly all the functions in the .dotm template that placed buttons on the ribbon will be disabled -- no error messages, no status bar messages nothing. A little digging shows that all macros are disabled.

    The .dotm file is in the User Templates folder, and the only add-ins are EndNote and the Outllook name smart tag.

    Has anyone seen this happen? Is there a cure? It's only one user at one company, it's got to be a setting or an environmental thing.

    Does this user have add-ins installed that other users don't have? If so, try disabling the add-ins to see if the problem disappears.

    Only Acrobat and EndNote -- both of which work fine for other users at the same company -- although now a second user has seen this behavior.

    Thanks for the reply,
