Scripts not recognized in Word 2016

Recommended Posts

I am developing Macro Express Pro scripts to run in Microsoft Word on a Windows 10 machine. Although the scope of my scripts are set to Global, my hotkey and shortkey macros are not activating while I am in Word.  The scripts are activating fine in every other program.


Changing the scope to Word doesn't help.


Any thoughts on what might be blocking scripts from activating while I am in Word?

Update 1: I thought this might be a Microsoft Office issue, but the macros work fine in PowerPoint.


Update 2: When the Macro Express hotkey is the same as a Word hotkey, the Word hotkey works. Usually the opposite is true: Windows "sees" Macro Express hotkeys first.


Samrae, I will try your suggestion.
