Windows XP, Office 2003, Trados 6.5

I have been using the tw4winClean.Main Macro to clean my translations lately and the other day I hit something (I only wish I knew what) and the Macro is MIA. Now, granted I can switch to the Trados6.dot menu and search for it there but since the menu defaults to All Active Templates and Docs, it is really just easier and faster if I can get it back in that main menu. I've tried to play with it a bit to see if I can get it back but to no avail and I don't want to mess anything else up!! Any suggestions or a link to a forum where this might have already been dealt with (wasn't able to find it through a forum search) will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Create macro button in MS Word toolbar Jul 27, 2005


Maybe this is useful for you:

1. Click on Tools--> Customize

2. Click on table "Commands"

3. Select in the list box "Macros" --> Select your macro

4. Drag & Drop the desired macro to a toolbar (Go to the new button and click then on the right button to change the macro name and other settings)

5. "Save in Normal.dot" and close the "Customize" screen.

Now you can use your macro by a simple click on the created button.
