    If I can jump into this thread, yes, you are correct that manual Ribbon customization are general are available to every project you open.  But, on the other hand, you can create a custom Quick Access Toolbar for individual projects as you wish, or you can create a general Quick Access Toolbar for every project.

    To create a new button that you need to attach to a macro, complete the following steps:

    1. Click File - Options - Customize Ribbon.
    2. Click the Choose Commands From pick list and select Macros.
    3. Select the name of the macro from the list on the left.
    4. Expand a Ribbon tab in the list on the right and select a Ribbon group.
    5. Click the Add button.
    6. With the macro selected in the list on the right, click the Rename button.
    7. In the Rename dialog, select a Symbol for the macro and enter a name for the macro as well.
    8. Click the OK button to close the Rename dialog.
    9. Click the OK button to close the Project Options dialog.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello Wlid1966,

    I don't quite follow your question.  If you customized the ribbon through VBA, the customization would be in the VBA module in the project.  See:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee767705%28v=office.14%29.aspx

    for details on using VBA.

    I hope this helps,

  • Hello Julie,

    In the previous versions, the customizations of the tool bars were saved automatically in the Global.mpt file.

    Is it the same for 2010 ?

    Thanks

  • Hi Wlid1966,

    I believe the answer is no.  Ribbon customizations are specific to the project. 

    In this forum see the following thread

    There have been quite a few threads on this topic in the Project Customization forum.  See in particular:

    http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/project2010custprog/thread/ca3019f4-3856-4b03-adeb-bd1e6f79df93

    I hope this helps.

  • Hi Julie,

    On my PC, manual (without VBA) Ribbon customizations seam general for all the projects on my PC.

    Another question about this customization: how can you draw a new button, especially for buttons which trigger a VBA proc.

    Thanks

  • Thanks for jumping in Dale.  I've been off traveling and not paying the proper amount of attention :-)

  • Thanks a lot Dale, that works!

    But, if I understand well, it no more possible to draw our own button, pixel by pixel, as we did in the previous versions.

    Thanks again

  • Hi Wlid1966,

    No, sorry, I don't believe so.  The ribbons are a completely different 'thing' than the standard toolbar buttons were in earlier releases.

    I hope this helps.
