We have had numerous reports that the Biblesoft Authoring System toolbars do not work under Word 2000. We have investigated this matter thoroughly and found that they do, indeed, work. A new security feature in Word 2000 causes the problem that people are experiencing.
Explanation. Word 2000 supports a macro security setting of High, Medium, or Low. The default setting is High. The result is that the install macro associated with the INSTALL button in the BASTAG97.DOT file is not available. Consequently, double-clicking on the button results in an image edit mode, rather than the expected install process.
Solution. If you upgrade from Word 97 to Word 2000, you will find that the Biblesoft Authoring System toolbars and macros are immediately available and functioning properly without requiring the following steps. However, you might consider changing the macro security setting to Medium (as documented below) in order to avoid future problems.
Otherwise, the solution is to change the macro security setting to Mediumó which will always display a message box, giving you the opportunity to enable or disable macros on a template-by-template basis. To do this, run Word 2000, select the Tools | Macro | Security option, and change the setting to Medium. Then exit Word 2000 (the new setting will not take effect until the next time you start Word). Open the BASTAG97.DOT document template (Start | Programs | PC Study Bible 3.0 | Install Authoring System Macros for Word 97). When prompted, select Enable Macros, then scroll down to page 2 and double-click on the INSTALL button, as documented.
