Word add-ins

Word add-in ribbon

Word add-ins or global templates are stored in Word’s Start-up folder and contain common Word VBA routines that are used in all your Word documents.  An add-in template acts as a library for common code so that each template can use common functionality.   In the ribbon screenshot above, the utilities group has the following options:

    • Toggle logo on/off – logos are hidden so that printed letterheads can be used
    • Page options – a VBA form allows users to easily add custom pages with section breaks
    • Outlook Contacts – contacts can be selected so recipient address details can be used in your Word templates without retyping
    • Calculator – runs the Windows calculator
    • Toggle fields – shows fields used in a document
  •
