Hello,
I created a custom toolbar in Word 2003 that conatins a number of buttons whioch when clicked inserts a piece of auto-text (e.g. Its a footer toolbar containing all the different branches).
It still works in Word 2010 (it puts iithe toolbar in the Add-ins section) but I don't want to have to use an old PC running Word 2003 when I need to add to the toolbar.

Does anyone know a better way to maybe recreate this in Word 2010? - need to be able to create some kind of custom buttons that are associated with auto-text (Quikparts)

You can easily add items to the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar).

Click the dropdown arrow at the right end of the buttons at the left of the title bar. Choose the 'More Commands...'  item and select 'Macros' from  the left-hand dropdown. Select the macro from the left-hand list and click the 'Add>>' button to append it to the right hand list.

If you want to change the icon, select the item in the right-hand list and click on the 'Modify...' button

Thanks,

Problem with this is I would have to save the setup in the  Word.Office UI file and share this with all my users - overwriting of course any current shortcuts they have already setup.

Perhaps you could create a template with the macro and the QAT setting and distribute it to the users' Word startup folders
