    Toggling Word ShortCuts on/off (2000 2002 2003)

    Is there a way to programmatically enable and disable all of Word's shortcuts?

    Thanks...

    What shortcuts do you mean? Keyboard shortcuts? I would be extremely annoyed if someone disabled all my keyboard shortcuts.

    Yes, keyboard shortcuts. I am embedding a dialog into Word (similar to what Crosseyes does) and, when that dialog has focus, I don't want Word's shortcuts to override the dialog shortcuts. When it loses focus, I want to re-enable Word's shortcuts.

    The way, say, that Ctrl+F4 doesn't close a document if the Find and Replace dialog has focus? I don't use many non-modal VBA dialogs, so I "assumed" this was normal... it's not, eh?

    Well--it sort of is. The problem I've run into is that, if I want to have a Crosseyes type dialog as a child window of the main Word Window, I apparently have eliminate the title bar from the dialog. (If I don't, I can't seem to actually input anything in the dialog). So, then, when I get rid of the title bar, Word seems to think that it is the one which handles all the shortcuts before it gives my dialog a chance. If I could figure out a way to intercept the shortcuts before Word gets them, that would be an even better solution to the problem.
