    Free Word add-in

    I just discovered this one: http://www.wordtoys.com . I've seen work by this guy before, but this beats his previous work. First test on my pc seem to work OK.

    It looks like they now also support Word 2000 (with Windows 2000)

    Looks neat...but I have to wait until it supports Win 98 (or until I upgrade). <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the link, it's a good add-in. Have you used the professional edition? I've been using the personal edition for about a couple of weeks and am considering upgrading to the pro version.

    Re: Free Word add-in

    Yes, I upgraded last week. Makes a big difference! I use the Style menu a lot,
    and as far as I can see their privacy protection app does a lot more than
    MS's Hidden Data Remover and the Metadata Assistant.

    Hi Don

    I have now upgraded as well and I think I will be making a lot of use of this add-in.

    Thanks again for posting the link.

    Re: Free Word add-in

    Hi Don,

    I downloaded and it seems a great app. However, I'm having some trouble. You say the new version works with Word 2000 AND Windows 2000, but I couldn't find the last requirement in their site. I'm using Word 2000 and Windows XP, and the problem is Word "refreshes" every second or so. That is, ever second word "flashes" and beyond this annoyance itself, if a submenu list is displaying, it will go away, so I gotta be real quick when going to, say, Tools | Add-Ins.

    I have just submitted this problem in their site and hope to get good news soon, but I was wondering whether this has to do with the OS.

    Thanks.

    Yes. Customer Service people were lightning-fast in replying. New version 1.0.7 has just been released (mine was 1.0.6) and this problem was solved.

    Thanks Don.
