Edit Document button missing from Word or Excel

The "Edit Document" button in Word and Excel is used to edit the text and layout of documents (as opposed to simply filling out the gray-shaded form fields). However, in rare cases this button (and the toolbar it is located on) can go missing. If this happens, follow these steps to restore it.

(Note: this article only applies to TurboLaw Cloud - if you are using the desktop edition of TurboLaw, follow the instructions in this article instead.)

  1. Click on the Start menu in the lower-left corner and then click on Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. (If necessary, click on "Blank Document" or "Blank Workbook" to bring up Word or Excel as normal.)
  2. Click the File menu and choose Options.
  3. Click on Add-Ins on the left-hand side of the window.
  4. At the bottom of the window, from the "Manage:" drop-down box, select COM Add-ins and then click the Go... button.
  5. From the list of add ins, look for "TurboLawToolbar" (or "TurboLawExcelToolbar") and make sure that it is checked, then click OK.

After you have done this, the "Edit Document" button should now be visible.

Alternatively, the TurboLaw Toolbar and Edit Document button may have been disabled by mistake. If after trying the steps above you still don't see the "Edit Document" button, follow these steps instead:

 

  1. Click on the Start menu in the lower-left corner and then click on Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. (If necessary, click on "Blank Document" or "Blank Workbook" to bring up Word or Excel as normal.)
  2. Click the File menu and choose Options.
  3. Click on Add-Ins on the left-hand side of the window.
  4. At the bottom of the window, from the "Manage:" drop-down box, select Disabled Items and then click the Go... button.
  5. From the list of disabled items, look for "TurboLaw Toolbar." If it is listed, click on it and then click the Enable button. Then, you can close the window.

After you have done this, you may need to close and re-open Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel, at which point your "Edit Document" button should now be visible.

If for any reason you still don't see your "Edit Document" button, please contact us so that we can help you.
