Missing Menu in Word w/ IBM ViaVoice


No menu in Word with IBM ViaVoice or Adobe PDF template.

IBM ViaVoice software & Adobe replaces any available menu with its own menu thereby overwriting the APA Style Template menu. There is no way to prevent ViaVoice from doing this. Here is how to work around the problem:

Quit Word.

Copy APA.wiz to your office StartUp folder.

Rename APA97.wiz to APA97.dot in the StartUp folder.

Restart Word.


If you are not sure where your StartUp folder is do this:

Within Word click Tools, Options, File Locations.

You will be able to see the folder name here.
