Word 2016 (preview) does not fire WindowBeforeRightClick event RRS feed

  • Question

  • I encountered the issue when tested my C++ COM Add-in for Excel and Word. The same code works fine in all other versions of the Office. All events fire in Excel 2016.

    Also all other events ( like WindowBeforeDoubleClick ) work fine in Word 2016. WindowBeforeRightClick the only one that does not work. Is this a known issue in Office 2016?

  • Hi Anna Fishkin,

    Thanks for feedback about Office 2016.

    Since the Office 2016 is in preview, Microsoft Office Word is an specific forum for discussing it. Since I am not able to help moving the thread to that forum, I suggest that you reopen a new thread in that forum.

    Thanks for your understanding.

  • The bug still occurs in the final released version of Office 2016. Please can you tell me if and when this will be fixed? This is a disaster for my company!

  • Microsoft: It is unbelievable that you have released Word 2016 with the WindowBeforeRightClick event no longer functioning. Hopefully this is not a new feature. Please fix this ASAP.
