    Custom toolbar: Can't create button (2003)

    The tech guys just completed a big maintenance job on my computer (points, plugs, lube/oil/filter), and I've lost my macros and a custom toolbar. I've created the macro and reconstructed the custom toolbar, but I can't seem to recreate the button to replace the macro name. The macro is for Edit > Paste Special > Paste Unformatted, and the text name appears on the toolbar. Of course, I want to replace that string of text with a little icon like I had before. When I right-click on the macro name, shouldn't I get a pop-up menu where I can tell Word to display a button instead of the text? All I get is the list of toolbars.

    Try Tools > Customize, then right click on the toolbar button.

    So that's it! I have to have the Customize dialog box open first; then I can right-click the text on the custom toolbar and put an icon in place of the text. Whew! Thanks for the help!
