    Context Sensitive Menus (Word 2003)

    <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15> Is there a way to add items to Word's context sensitive menu? What I would like to do, now that I have my custom dictionaries macro working, is to be able to right-click on a flagged word and have the choices of Add to dictionary (which is already present) and Add to a custom dictionary (which would run my custom dictionaries macro). Thanks.

    Select Tools | Customize...
    Activate the Toolbars tab.
    Tick the check box labeled Shortcut Menus.
    A floating toolbar with three items will appear: Text, Table, Drawing.
    The one you'll want to extend is Text > Spelling.
    Activate the Commands tab of the Customize dialog.
    Select Macros in the list of Categories.
    Select your macro in the list of Commands, and drag it to the desired position in the Text | Spelling menu.
    Right-click the new item to set its caption, style, button image etc.
    The Shortcut Menus toolbar will be closed automatically when you close the Customize dialog.

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> Thank you, Hans. I was completely unaware of this ability, and I considered myself a knowledgable Word user. I appreciate the quick response.
