    Macros in Add-In Templates

    Wd2000 / Win2K / Win2K WAN
    Our office has made personal templates that are kept on a network drive and loaded as add-ins at start-up. OnExit copies and then deletes Autotext and Styles from normal to the add-in (personal.dot). We want our pple to be able to write macros in the personal.dot add-in -- but that option is not available.

    Any ideas?

    First,
    Unless you are doing something unusual, don't bother with copying styles to a global template. They don't have any effect on other documents unless text from the template in that style (including a paragraph mark) is somehow imported into the document.

    See: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm>Template Basics</A> (www.addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm) for more on templates (user and workgroup), global templates and Normal.dot.

    Second, to record macros in an add-in, open the add-in for editing and unload it as an add-in. Record the macro, save and close the add-in, reload it as an add-in.

    Hope this helps,

    Actually, you don't have to unload & reload an add-in template to record or create a macro. Just open it. In the dropdown box of "macros in", you'll see the name of your macro twice...once as a global template & once plain. Select the plain template & you can create, edit or save your macro. You can't do this if you choose the global template.
