    Acrobat features for Office (Office 2000 SR-1)

    Hi,

    On a past computer, we installed Adobe Acrobat after Office (older versions at that time). During the Acrobat install process, we were asked about putting an Acrobat toolbar onto the Office toolbar area. We accepted this and life was good.

    On a new computer that we are just bringing up, we installed Acrobat first and then Office. No Acrobat toolbar for Office. We searched the Acrobat Help and all the menus to see if there was some process to run to have the Acrobat toolbar/buttons installed for Office. Couldn't find anything.

    Any suggestions on how to get this back? Going back to our old PC is NOT an option. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    TIA

    Fred

    Is the '.dot' in the correct folder?

    Pat,

    Certainly having installed Acrobat before Office this time around, I would think the templates could not be in any folder, let alone the right one. I'll have to check to see if they're in the Acrobat folder or on its CD-ROM just waiting to be put into an Office folder.

    Thks for the lead.

    Sorry - I misread. We have the acrobat icons in Word and PDFMaker.dot in our startup so I was thinking templates and file locations.

    Pat,

    ok - any suggestions on how to get back to that Acrobat-heaven (Acrobat toolbar/icons in Office programs)? Anything short of uninstalling/re-installing Acrobat?

    Thks.

    Search for PDFMAKER.DOT and PDFMAKER.XLA.
    On my system they are in crogram filesadobeacrobat 5.0pdfmaker
    Copy PDFMAKER.DOT to crogram filesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeStartup
    Copy PDFMAKER.XLA to crogram filesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeXLStart.
    This should restore the acrobat toolbars.

    Francois,

    Thanks. I think you've confirmed my fears.

    Even though I had searched yesterday on my D Disk (where all non Windows pgms are installed) for *.dot and *.xla, I went back to do the search today for pdfmaker. The only thing on my hard disk was pdfmaker.pdf, which talks about how to install and use pdfmaker once installed. Likewise this is the only "pdfmaker" on the CD. Looking at this file, it implies that Acrobat needs to be installed AFTER Office to create the templates you mentioned (however they exist on the Acrobat CD) and put into the right Office folders.

    So now the only question is whether to
    - un-install/re-install Acrobat; or
    - just go thru the Acrobat install and hopefully just get the Office functionality created w/o disturbing the existing installation.

    Suggestions?

    Fred

    Acrobat only takes two or three minutes to uninstall and reinstall - I reckon it would be quicker to do that than to ask about it in here <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I think StuartR is right.
    Have a look at this
