The VisiSpecs Word Add-in is no longer in my menus.

Microsoft Windows and Word updates can clear the local user’s cache and may remove Add-ins from the ribbon menus.

To enable the disabled add-in do one of the following in Word:

  1. File > Options > Add-ins > Manage COM Add-ins > Click Go…
    • If the Load Behavior says Load at Startup, check the box to enable VisiWord and click OK (do not click Add).
    • If the Load Behavior says anything else, Go to File > Options > Add-ins > Manage COM Add-ins (use drop down to go to Disabled Items) and click Go…
      • Check the box to enable VisiWord and click the Enable button.
  2. Close and reopen Word to ensure VisiSpecs tab and ribbon menu are enabled.
  3. If this does not enable the VisiWord Add-in automatically each time you open Word, you may need to uninstall and then reinstall the VisiWord addin.
