    Custom toolbars disappear (2003/sp2)

    Our firm recently upgraded from Office 2000 to 2003. Twice, I have re-created my personal toolbar which included styles, macros, and standard command buttons. A day or so after building the first toolbar, I noticed that the buttons suddenly disappeared -- only a blank toolbar remained. I then created a similar toolbar for a second time and the same thing happened.

    Also, I deleted the first now-blank toolbar, but when I exited and restarted Word, the toolbar re-appeared. This process also repeated itself with the second toolbar. Now I have two blank toolbars that I cannot get rid of. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Do you have the Adobe Acrobat add-in? It wreaks havoc with Word customizations.

    Otherwise, check out Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word,197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word<!/post>.

    Yes, we do have the Adobe add-in installed. Any way to work around this? Would saving the toolbar in another location or template do the trick?

    Thx.

    Hans, I have a problem with toolbars right now. I wonder if you can help. We are on a network, and I have templates on the network drive. For some reason I cannot copy any toolbars to another template anymore. I've done it dozens of times before, but for the last week, it will not let me do it. I can copy autotext, styles, macros, but not the toolbars. I am at a loss.

    Johanna
