Thanks Matthias and Keal!

It seems that after our Migration from 10.4 to 10.8 it got lost. The screenshot also helped my because I know now that it is definitly not in the viewset.

But the interesting thing is that I remember that we had this feature in 10.4 in the viewset.

Anyway I think I will have to make a new viewset.

Hello Daniel Schleicher‌,

I don't see any mention of that in the Release Notes.  I just tried it myself, and it worked fine.

I suspect your ViewSet just doesn't have the Edit in Word... entry in your Document menu.  If your ViewSet is customizable, you should be able to do the following:

  1. Go to Menu ViewSet ➜ Customize...
  2. In the Customize <ViewSetName> ViewSet dialog, it should open on the Actions tab.  In the left pane under Action Group, drill down into Workflows and Documents ➜ Document ➜ Document.
  3. In the right tab, in the drop down next to the Edit in Word action, select Visible or Visible, On Toolbar.
  4. In the bottom right, click on OK

The Edit in Word... action should now be available.

Hello Keal,

Do you realy work on 10.8? - because I do not find Edit in Word in the ViewSet Customization Dialog.

Daniel

Hi Daniel Schleicher‌,

Yes, I certainly do Daniel.  It's the last option in that set of actions:

Hi Daniel,

If you reuse viewsets that where created at a time when the "Edit in Word" functionality was not yet available, you will never be able to "enable" it by customizing this viewset.

Reason (as far as i know it):

The viewsets are XML files. When you configure a viewset you can only "modify" elements of this XML file that where initially included.

Even when you create a new one by "copy existing viewset" Option, you will only copy these limitations.

Workaround:

do not try to modify or copy an existing, but create a new viewset from scratch in your 10.8 Client.
