    Header/Footer Toolbar

    What causes the AutoText entries in the drop-down to change and how can I get the default entries back?

    Re: Header/Footer Toolbar

    Assuming this is Word 2000, try this:

    -View | Header and Footer
    -right click Insert AutoText
    -click Customize
    -on the toolbar tab, select the Header and Footer checkbox (don't uncheck it)
    -click Reset
    Reset changes made for 'Header and Footer' toolbar for: Normal.dot?
    -click OK

    Hope this helps!

    Re: Header/Footer Toolbar

    Hi Cheri,

    The AutoText entries that appear in the Header/Footer toolbar are associated with a specific style. If you want a better understanding of how this works, see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/TblsFldsFms/AutoTextListContent.htm>http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/TblsFldsFms/...ListContent.htm</A>

    Two things come to mind that would make them disappear:

    1) You copy/pasted text in the Header or Footer that had a different style such as Normal. Take a look at the Style list on the Toolbar to verify this.

    If this is the case, just apply the Header or Footer Style to the text or go to Insert/AutoCorrect/ Header/Footer to select the entry that you want.

    2) You saved a document as Normal.dot and all of the built-in AutoText entries are missing, not just those you see on the Header/Footer toolbar.

    To verify this, close the Header/Footer and go to Insert/AutoText and see if the built-in entries are listed.

    If this is the case then rename your current Normal.dot to OldNormal.dot and allow Word to create a new one.

    You can copy any customization you have in OldNormal.dot via the Organizer. (Tools/Templates and Add-Ins)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Cheers!
