    Need a new normal.dotm for Word 2016

    I ported over my 2010 normal.dotm, but it makes everything in Word 2016 work in Compatible Mode. I tried registry editing ( http://www.askvg.com/fix-microsoft-w...t-in-titlebar/ ) but that didn't work either. So it seems that I need to "rebuild" my default template.

    That's OK...not the end of the world...as long as I can recover my macros.

    How do I do that? Save off the macros from the 2010 template and then bring them into a new 2016 template?
    ------
    Update:

    I went back to the 2010 template and exported the macros. Then I restarted 2016 with the default template, thinking that now I would import the macros into "Normal."

    But I don't seem to be getting it right.

    Are there (of course there are) specific steps that I am not quite getting right?

    is there some list or guide for the process?



    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Hi Chuck,
    Perhaps I'm missing something but doesn't this tip solve your issue?

    Skip, yes, a combination of that link and google did get me where I needed to get to -- except for the digital signature. I cannot find the tool. Does Office 365 not have the tool to create a digital signature? If it does, where, and if it does not, then how does one create a signature to sign things like macros (VB)?

    I found selfcert.exe...as expected it was/is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\SELFCERT.EXE. MS this time just didn't supply the menu link for Office 365.

    No biggie, all is now well.
