Post Quick Parts - Own Custom Toolbar

Hi,

I have spent about 4 hours looking for a way to create my own custom quick part toolbar in MS Word 2010.

When you select front page on the toolbar, or header or footer, you get a selection of Quick Parts to choose from. This is understand and I know that these come from the Quick Parts Organizer.

I also know how to create the custom tab for my own toolbar, and I know how to create an icon on the tab, but I cannot see that anyone has been able to create their own custom toolbar icon with their own Quick Parts items.



Can anyone help with this?

It took me a bit to figure out that you are customizing the Ribbon. I'm not sure if you want a Quick parts button on your custom tab of the Ribbon, or something fancier. To add the Quick Parts button to your custom tab of the Ribbon, in the Customize Ribbon category of Word Options, use the 'Choose Commands From' drop-down and choose 'All Commands'. Then you'll find the Quick parts command. It's sneaky and hard to find unless you go to 'All Commands'. Is this what you are trying to do?

Default Custom Quick Part Galley Itself

Hi Kimberley,

Many thank for your reply. Re-reading my post, I can see that I was not clear enough in my requirement - my apologies!

I can create a Toolbar called 'Nutrastat' and I can create an Icon, INCLUDING using Quick Parts icon, where I have all of the Quick Parts text that we have created. However, there is too much, it is too fussy trying to find things. This is where I want to create...

A toolbar called 'Nutrastat' with several Quick Part Custom icons, for the sake of simply we will call the icons: Report Type 1, Report Type 2, Report Type 3 and Report Type 4. The different reports have different text requirements and by separating the various pieces of text it will make it easier to find under the different report type icons.

I would like to be able to create each icon to ONLY SHOW the text for the particular report type, just like MS Word does for Front Sheet, Header & Footer Quick Parts. It is here where I cannot see how they have done it.

There are 5 Custom 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5 sections in the Organiser, but they do not appear to give me the text that I want just like MS Word does for Front Sheet, Header & Footer Quick Parts.

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Ifyou would like to place the functions on the Quick Parts drop down into your personal toolbar, correct? Like "Building Blocks Organizer?" and "Save Selection to Quick Parts Gallery?"

Go to Word Options > Customize > All Commands, and scroll down. They're all there. Just click Add to place them on your Quick Access toolbar.

I started to respond, thinking that was your question, then read more carefully. It sounds like you have something more specific in mind. If you want icons for specific tasks, you can just record a macro, and assign an icon to your toolbar. Have your macro filter the content you need. Unless I totally misunderstood. I read it again, and wasn't sure...?
