word ribbon customisation not showing?? Banging my head against the

Discussion in 'Word Programming' started by Shawn the sheep, Oct 24, 2011.

  1. I have a really weird issue with the ribbon. I am using word 2007 and
    have done ribbon customisation before. This was a while ago, and I do
    remember somthing similar: I just can't get any customisation to show
    up, whatever I try. I have tried using the most basic example, using
    the custom ui editor, but nothing. I have opened the template i have
    done a while ago and it works there. However, even copying the xml
    from the working file into a new file doesn't work, nothing, no error
    message, no customisation. For example, using the xml below I would
    expect a custom group to show up, but nothing. Am I missing something
    that I need to do in the template file I have created?

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <customUI xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2006/01/

    <tab idMso="TabHome">
    <group id="CustomGroup" label="My new group"


    Any ideas?
    I also added the template location to the trusted sources, allowed all
    macros, still nothing. Aaarrrghh.
