LiveJournal Add-In for Word (Reposted from lj_dev) [Jan. 18th, 2003|01:42 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions
I just joined the community, so this is my introduction, hello. This is a LiveJournal add-in I just wrote for Word:

People who are like me and tend to write things in Word before they paste them into a LiveJournal client might get some use out of this. It basically just adds the appropriate tags around your text when you click a button. You can download it here. Right click on it and save it wherever you want. Then open Word and click Tools, then Templates and Add-ins, and then click "add" and point to the file. I'm interested to hear what people think of it (especially if you find bugs).

That's pretty cool. If I used Word to write entries, I'd use it. I tend to use the web client or LochJournal. But good job, and good lucK!

it works nicely, except for one small problem that i was experiencing anyhow

if you stick this add-in anywhere else other than the folder that Word defaults to for plugins (i.e. the folder that comes up when you select plugins), then you get an error.

it was something like: cannot find macro or cannnot execute macro based on security settings.

moving the file to the right folder fixed my issue.

I never had that problem, but my security settings are at medium. Word may consider it a "trusted source" once you move it to the default directory, but I'm not sure.

I'm having that problem. I can't seem to move the file, plus I not sure where to move it?

If you can't move the file, that probably means it's still in use by something. Make sure Word is closed, and hit ctrl-alt-delete to make sure that it isn't still running as a process. I can't think of any other reason why you wouldn't be able to move it. The directory I have mine in is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Startup. That way it will automatically be loaded every time you start Word. Another thing you should do is this:

  • Click on Tools: Macro: Security.
  • Click on the Trusted Sources tab.
  • Check the box next to "Trust all installed add-ins and templates".

Still can't find macro *sigh*

So, I've got the template, the help file and a MOD file all in my startup folder, but I'm still getting that message "the macro cannot be found or has been disabled... " I even took my security setting down to 'low', but that didn't help - is there something terribly obvious that I'm missing?

Re: Still can't find macro *sigh*

I'm really not sure what could be wrong. Maybe the file is corrupt.
