Ribbon of Word 2007 freezes when trying to access shape properties when thumbnails view on RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to access Shape properties from C# add-in and with VBA script.

    Ribbon freezes (becomes grey and non responsive).


    Sub Freeze()

    For Each nShape In ActiveDocument.Shapes

       SomeValue = nShape.Top

    Next nShape

    End Sub



    1. Turn on View -> Thumbnails

    2. Add oval shape

    3. Run script



    Reproduced only on Word 2007 (2010 and 2003 are ok)

    Ribbon unfreezes in case if I launch Word 2010.



    Windows 7 EN-US x64

    Word 2003, 2007, 2010 are installed

    2*2.93 GHz, 2*2GB DDR2


    Is it known issue?

    What can I try to overcome it?
