Default Custom button to open template

Hi,

I apologize in advance if this is the wrong board.

I'm looking to add a custom toolbar with a button that opens a new document from a specific template for the users of my organization. Ideally it would work like this:

* A custom toolbar with custom graphic on the button, on both Word and PowerPoint.
* A dialogue box should pop up when pressing the button, asking which of the templates the user wants (e.g., standard new document, letter, presentation X, etc)
* Templates are located on a shared network resource.


* The correct template shows up for the user.
* Adding the custom toolbar w/button must be as easy for the user as possible, ideally as a .msi installation or similar.

I've tried doing some creative googling, without finding exactly what I need - can anyone here help me in the right direction?

Best regards,
Magnus

Hi Magnus,

Is there a reason the standard File|New process, with a appropriate set of templates in, say, 'My Templates' isn't sufficient? If not, see:
