Windows 7: Word 2010 - Text Box

25 Jun 2012   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

They are computer based. You can save them in a template other than the Normal.dotm, for best practice, and copy both the document and template to the other computer. Keep them both in the same folder or place the template into the templates folder.
Modify the macro code like
Set strTemplate = ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate
    strTemplatePath = strTemplate.Path & Application.PathSeparator & strTemplate.Name
    Application.Templates(strTemplatePath). _
        BuildingBlockEntries("MyText").Insert Where:=Selection.Range, _
"MyText" = What your text box is named.

The above code finds the path and filename of the attached template. If the code is left as it was then the template would need to be placed in the same location as it was on your computer.

The main problem is that the Ribbon buttons are not copied to the other computer making the macro just as hard to use as scrolling to the bottom of the text boxes. If you want to leave the macro out you could rename the text box to "1 - MyText" and change the category to "Built-in" then it should show as the 2nd text box under Insert > Text boxes.

To easily move and rename the Text box refer to post #8. Under step 1 click edit properties and that'll take you straight to step 4 where you can change the Name, Category and Template. If changing the template make sure you have a template opened, if you want it based on the Normal.dotm just create a new blank document and save as a template then proceed to move the Text box.

These are the best solutions I could come up with, with the time I have had but I don't think there's much better.

Can't access text effects in Word 2010
I'm "scundered" to only now discover a whole raft of text effects are available within Word 2010 except I can't access them!! That's partly the reason I'm only now realising they exist, as the button's been greyed out and I've continually missed spotting it to investigate until I read about them...
