How to display task pane ion Word 2007?

    Question

  • Hoi all,

    I have two basic questions with regards to Custom Actions page for Word 2007.

    1. When I open word 2007 (not in VSTO debug mode), how can I open the task pane? Which button/option do i need to pick for Word to display the Task Pane? In Office 2003, I could go to Tools -> Shared Workspace and see the Task pane. How do I do the same in Word 2007?
    2. How do I deploy the custom task pane to all my users? What is the recommended way? Do I include all the runtime  assemblies in my setup project? My task pane uses a app config file which actually gets bundled in the setup.exe. The app config has some settings which the users can change. How can I get the user to tweak the settings in the app config file during installation of the task pane?

    Thanks

    I believe you need to customize RibbonX to include a (toggle) button for your task pane.
