Styles Pane - Show Preview (Turn on via VBA or GP) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to turn on the "Show Preview" tick box option in the styles pane either using VBA or applying it through group policy?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

  • This cannot be done easily through VBA, but it can with Group Policy.
     
    The setting is not in the supplied Admin Templates, but the registry value you need to set is:
     
        HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\Options\vpref\fStylesShowPreview_2886_1    (Word 2007)
        HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Options\vpref\fStylesShowPreview_2102_1    (Word 2010)
     
    This is a DWORD value: 1 = Show Preview, 0 = don't
