    Filtering building blocks

    Is there a way to filter out the default building blocks and only display the BB's that are stored in the current template? Yes I can and will use the BB Gallery Control. But some parts of the doc are a little too freeform for this. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here

    If I save building blocks to the current template, and then create a new document based on the template, doing Insert > Quick Parts will display a dropdown with only my custom building blocks displayed:

    Same with a Building Blocks Gallery control:

    Only thing I can think of is to double-check that the BBs are stored to the template, and not Building Blocks.dotx.

    Arrrgh! I went straight to the organizer. Which shows everything. I'll check the QP drop-down next.

    I am not getting that behaviour from the QuickParts button (drop-down is not displaying)

    Oh, but by putting them in the Custom QP categories - I can add custom buttons to the QAT, and that does filter the building blocks.
