word 2007 no right click menu customization

Just installed office 2007 and I was blown away that MS has removed
the ability to customize context menus or short cut menus. What
the.... Come on. Put the feature back in! If anyone knows of a 3rd
party program that will permit customization of the context menus
please post a link.

The simple method of customizing menus using VBA in previous versions? Yes.
If you are asking if it is as simple as drag/drop. No.

I don't know of any sample code out there but basically you need to find the
control ID for the command you want to add and then use
Application.CommandBars("<CommandBarName>").Contro ls.Add method to add it.

You may want to check in one of the Word VBA groups to see if anyone has
some sample code for 1) finding the control ID and 2) how to add it the
command.

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for
assistance by email cannot be acknowledged.
