  • Question

  • Hi Experts/MSDN

    We have developed office 2010 add-in, and we are upgrading to Office word 2013. The following codding working fine in Office winword 2007 and 2010 as well:

                Globals.ThisDocument.ActionsPane.Controls.Add(Globals.ThisDocument.splitedContainer)
                Globals.ThisDocument.ActionsPane.Show()

    but, we are getting "You are currently viewing this document in multiple windows.  To attach an XML Expansion pack, you must first close all additional windows so that you are view the document in only one window." when using in word 2013. I am sure no more additional windows are opened.

    Please any help to fix the issue, or bug in office 2013?

    Thanks in Advance

    Regards,

    Saran

    According to your description, since there are less information, I am not able to reproduce this issue.
     
    As far as I know that in Word 2007, and 2010, when the option "Windows in Taskbar" or "Show all windows in taskbar"  is checked and you open multiple documents, each document gets its own set of menus or ribbons and behaves as a completely separate window. (The technical term is Single Document Interface or SDI.)

    In those versions, when that option is unchecked and you open multiple documents, there is only one set of menus or ribbons. You can tile or cascade the documents within the main Word window. (The term for this is Multiple Document Interface or MDI.) The fact that there's only one icon on the taskbar is really a side effect, but it was easier to dumb down the option name than to explain the difference between SDI and MDI.

    In Word 2013, MDI no longer exists, and the option doesn't appear in the dialog.

    So I suggest that you could create new document-level vsto application with your source codes in Office 2013, could you reproduce this issue?

    If so, you could provide more information about this issue, for example full sample code, screenshot etc., that will help us reproduce and resolve it.

    Thanks for your understanding.
