I’ve finally released a beta version of the Toolbox now that the Report Overview function exports into proper tables. The full suite of reporting options aren’t in there as I’ve got to add Custom Styles, various language detection, template names and both types of image: inline and shapes. But it gives you an idea of […]
I’ve spent some time this evening ensuring that the articles that I have written (so far) for the ISTC magazine are now all online. You can download them from this website directly, or sync them with your Dropbox and/or GoogleDrive accounts. Click here to go to the ISTC page.
The what? I have been developing a Word add-in called Mike’s Toolbox for the last 2.5 years within my spare time: some of it at work, some of it at home. It started out life as a small collection of macros (without any proper GUI) that would fix a number of particular annoyances that kept […]
I’ve updated most of the pages with the latest screenshots. I had to install yet another WordPress plugin as, annoyingly, if you want to replace an existing screenshot you have to upload a fresh one, delete the old one then rename the new one and then it should (!) appear on the page. Or you […]
As my first official post on this new official website for my add-in, it might be a lengthy one 🙂 Code optimisation(s): There are several that I’ve discovered, including a variant of the ‘IF’ command that I didn’t know existed. First There’s the condensation of a line of code. I’ve done this before in previous […]
It’s been a few months since the release of v1.87, but after several incarnations of the beta (v1.88), I can now announce the availability of v1.89. There have been *lots* of changes: either to existing features, or adding new features. I’ve also fixed some really embarrassing bug fixes and, as a visitor to this blog, […]
I’ve released a stand-alone version of a function that was from an older version of the toolbox. The code has been tidied up, CSV file writing added and some extra checks are now included. Load up the RoboHelp Map ID Report, click the Convert button and a .CSV file version will appear in the same […]
The add-in is being prepared ready for the next full release. Which means webpage edits and screenshot changes galore as I’ve moved from Office 2013 as my main development tool to Office 2016. If you’ve tried any of the beta versions out, you will have noticed that the screenshots in the manual are now based […]
This is just an interim beta release as I’ve fixed a few bits here and there, but I’m still not sure whether I like how the add-in is handling endnotes and footnotes. I’ve added the detection of Whole Document / Selection to the form so that if you only want to amend endnotes/footnotes in a […]
And to be really, really lazy, all of the download links are on my new Beta page 🙂 Grab a copy, overwrite the existing version and have a play around.
