It has taken a while to get to this point, much longer than I’d planned. But once you start messing around with Table Styles in Word, it can drag you in and keep hold of you. I’ll be honest in that I still don’t understand some of the intricacies of how they work, but I know a lot more now than I did!
The main function that has been added, is the Table Inspection. The original request was for “something like your Section Break Inspector, but so that it works with tables”. The two work colleagues who became my official beta-testers ensured that I went through revision after revision. Each new mini-function that was added was critiqued, pulled, prodded and eventually given the nod to say that it was OK to be released.
There are other changes in the code too. The first form that appears when you click on the Toolbox icon has had a complete overhaul too. It was one of the first functions that I coded back in June of this year and it was beginning to show its age.
I will be demoing this add-in to the other technical authors who attend the ISTC North West meeting tomorrow (October 2nd) at MadLab in Manchester.
Oh .. I nearly forgot! This version is also the first time that I’ve released the full VBA source code to the add-in. I welcome contact via the Gmail address listed in the source code. A warning though .. the code is probably a mess and please finish laughing before you contact me 🙂
