Hi all,
I don't know what I am doing wrong. I open the .dot file, enable the macro content, close the file, but Ptools won't open.
I tried opening it after enabling the macro, and Ptools opens but it doesn't display the folders path.


Does anybody know how can I fix it?
Thanks for your help

What do you mean you open the dot file? Dec 12, 2011

What version of Word are you using?
Why would you open the dot file? Which dot file are you opening?

Try this Dec 12, 2011

As I'm not sure what you did when you say you opened the macro, I'll give you the steps to follow to activate PTools (just in case this isn't what you did).

In Word click on the Microsoft Office Button
Click on Word Options
Click on Add-ins
You should see a list called "Global templates and add-ins", check the box next to "PlusTools.dot", click on OK.

Now open the documents you want to work with and click on "Alt+F2", that should open PTools for you and display the documents you want.
