    Places Bar - move up/dn grayed out (Office 2003 Standard)

    After I deleted some of the places on my Places Bar the move up or down option was grayed out when I right click on any places button. I then edited the registry so that I have and Index value for each places button (1-9). How do I fix this so the Move Up/Down option works? (I noted the comment on this bug in the last WOW, and I have read the section on this in Woody's "Office 2003 Timesaving Techniques")

    Hi - I haven't had any problem with this and can't find the WOW which documents it. Can u give me any further information. I am a trainer and sing the praises of the my places bar as a great time saver.

    Re: Woody's reply - Places Bar

    I agree that Places Bar Customize is a great tool. Apparently Microsoft tried to incorporate it into Office 2003 (and perhaps Office XP). If you modify a few icons, the right-click method for moving icons up and down in the Places Bar stops working. After I installed Places Bar Customizer the move up and down choices are no longer grayed out, however the Customizer can not remove some of the icon/buttons (My Computer, My Network Places, etc.). I just moved these to the bottom of the list. See WOW 9.11 for more information, or Woody's new book, "Office 2003 Timesaving Techniques for Dummies".

    Thanks for the reply Jim - this is a weird one - do you know of a fix?

    No, and neither does Mike Craven or Woody. Sorry.
