Text Form Fields in MS Office
« on: July 02, 2009, 09:33:27 AM »
hello

here http://office.micros.../HP051899431033.aspx
it says to use the Forms toolbar to insert fields in a form

I wonder, since all commands are supposedly included in menus, which menu does this function?

thanks

Some commands are in menus, some in context (right click) menus, some in toolbars, many in a combination, some in none (but can be added). 

It's easy to change menu entries and toolbar buttons in Word 2003, so if you want a menu to include commands that are by default in a toolbar button, that is easy (check Help).

thanks
but is there a menu command about this function? (even if it's not by default visible and must be added)

If we are speaking about MS Word 2003:

  • Right-click on any toolbar
  • Select Customize
  • Select Commands tab
  • In Categories select Forms
  • Drag any item from Commands to any toolbar or menu

which of the commands specifically? regardless, you will be able to find them by following yksyks' instructions.

Also, when you are in the "customize" mode (after selecting Customize in yksyks' list), you can drag a button from a toolbar onto a menu or different toolbar , or a menu selection to a tool bar or other menu location.  Hold down the Control key when you do this if you want to copy the command instead of move it.

So if you want any of the commands that are on the forms toolbar to be someplace else, you can just move/copy them in "customize" mode.
