    Modified Shortcut Menus not appearing (2000)

    Hi. My problem is this:
    I've modified the shorcut menus in a template. When I open the template, or a document based on it, I don't see the changes at first. Only after I go to View>Toolbars>Customize do the new additions show up on the shortcut menus. I don't have to do anything in Customization, just open and close the screen, and the new options appear. Is there any simple way to have the modified shortcut menus available when the doc is opened?
    Thanks.

    The changes should be visible immediately. Perhaps there is startup code or an add-in that prevents this. See Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post>.

    I don't think I've ever tried to modify the shortcut (right-click) menus except in Normal.dot. Perhaps there is something you can add to the ThisDocument module to jog Word into completing the process of reconciling all the command bars... but off the top of my head, I can't think of how I would do it.

    Thanks for pointing me to that post. It seems to have been the Adobe pdf add-ins that were fouling it up.

    Glad you found it. The Adobe add-in is notorious for messing things up.
