Not really a question, but I'm hoping some folks will know more about this than I do, and will share their wisdom:
I tried running my old 2003 normal.dot as a global template in 2007 (as I mentioned in an earlier thread ("Building Blocks.dot"))
And I discovered that I can now access many of my old 2003 macros and their customized icons, in Word 2007!
The buttons show up in the Add-Ins tab, or better yet (for my purposes) I found a command that can be added to the QAT called "Custom Toolbars", and now the macros for which I had buttons in custom toolbars in 2003 are available in that 2007 button.
This is the Custom Toolbars command on my QAT, tooltip showing:
By fiddling around with the old 2003 normal.dot toolbars a little (thank goodness we kept one machine with Word 2003 on it), I achieved some control over the appearance of the contents of this QAT button's display. I also put some of the old Menus into a toolbar, so now I have access to the old menus (not every command in them works, of course, esp. in Tools):
I imagine that there's a downside to running the 2003 normal.dot as a global template,* but I'm currently getting a big kick out of it!
*which happens automatically if you put the normal.dot in the 2007 Word startup area -- for me that's C:\Documents and Settings\JudyL\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP
